For this task you are required to identify the factors that contribute to the cost of an Airline and describe the different sources of revenue for an airline.
You can answer this by choosing a Full Service carrier of your choice and investigating their latest annual report. You need to analyze the costs and revenues for the latest financial year for which data is available and comment on the same.
