US Airways says fuel bill soaring

June 12, 2008|From Times Wire Services

US Airways' top executive said fuel costs per passenger had doubled since 2007 and that the carrier would pay nearly $2 billion more for fuel in 2008.

Doug Parker said the Tempe, Ariz.-based airline would try to recoup some of those costs with its recently announced fees for a second bag, choice seating and other service charges. He said the average per-passenger fuel cost in the airline's mainline operations had gone from $151 last year to $299 in 2008.
