You would think that the most profitable airline in the world is one that charges a huge price for their tickets or that has the largest population of business customers or frequent flyer program. But, you would be wrong! This airline was rates as the most profitable airline in the world back in April and Morgan Stanley recently said that their increased earnings cause it to likely be the most profitable airline in the world.
The answer is – Spirit Airlines! That’s right, the airline that has the fees for everything you do before, during, and after the flight is actually the most profitable airline. 🙂 Never having flown them myself, I cannot speak to the experience (check out these posts at Heels First Travel for info about Spirit Airlines).
So, I guess you might be better off buying their actual stock instead of anything on ticket stock (especially since you have to pay $10 for that printed boarding pass at the airport)! 🙂
