The Surprising Profit Center for Airlines

Continuing my trend of learning more about how certain industries actually work (see the McDonald’s article or film distribution video from previous weeks), I stumbled across this ‘explainer’ video about how airlines have changed their profit priority: it’s no longer focused on flying planes.

Now, I’m sure some people already knew this, just as many people know that, historically, movie theaters make more money on concessions than on the movie tickets themselves. But I’m just going to advocate for the consumers of airline travel and movie theaters that it’s okay for you all to push for airlines and theaters to care about those things.
