Good thing it says hypothetically because this seems like quite a bit of BS to me.
Uh.. it’s no secret that airline’s have small profit margins.
Fuel isn’t exactly cheap, airliners are expensive to own/lease and maintain, and (in any industry) there are always corporate vultures. Taxes and fees sound pretty on-par.. you probably forget that every time a plane lands the airline must pay to land, pay to use the gate, pay to get their aircraft fueled (the service itself, not just the cost of fuel), etc.
As Richard Branson once said, “The easiest way to become a millionaire is to become a billionaire and start up an airline.” You can say it’s BS all you want.
The only laudable thing about the graphic above would seem to be the fact that it’s an MD-80 with 2 abreast seating..
