According to Airlines for America (A4A), the U.S. Airline Industry posted a profit of $11.3 billion, 7.8 percent of revenue, in 2013. Airlines benefitted from a 3.6 percent drop in fuel costs. The group predicts U.S. airlines to see approximately 129.5 million passengers during the March-April period, which is a highest in six years. "We attribute the increase in spring air travel to rising U.S. household net worth, an improving economy and the affordability of air travel, which remains one of the best bargains for consumers," said John Heimlich, vice president and chief economist for A4A.
