But none of this analysis increases airline revenue unless the average cost of tickets increase. So the question airlines have to answer is, "Does a ticket price increase that involves weights and measurements of every single passenger and their luggage seem more beneficial than a simple across-the-board increase in ticket cost?" A second, related question is, "Is the cost of enforcing a 5% to 18% cost difference implied by weight worth the cost of enforement:?"
I believe the current Administration would answer in the affirmative if the enforcement could be outsourced to Dick Cheney's Halliburton in a lucrative, no-bid contract.
