The top 10 airlines by ancillary revenue worldwide generated $35.2 billion from non-ticket sources in 2018, up from just $2.1 billion in 2007, according to a new report from IdeaWorksCompany.

Dallas/Fort Worth-based American Airlines generated the most ancillary revenue of any carrier globally at $7.2 billion, followed by Chicago-based United Airlines with $5.8 billion, Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines with $5.6 billion and Dallas-based Southwest Airlines with $4 billion.

Florida-based LCC Spirit Airlines earned more ancillary revenue per passenger than any other carrier at $50.94, followed by Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air with $50.01 per passenger and $47.62 for Colorado-based Frontier Airlines. That compares to $18.61, $26.66 and $3.70, respectively, in per passenger revenue in 2008, showing how the ultra-LCC business model has drastically evolved over the past decade.
