# What's the profit margin for airlines between fuel cost per seat price per seat to the customer? [duplicate]

• This also varies a lot in time. The price of a barrel of crude oil has ranged from under $20 to over$140 over the last 20 years. Also you're asking for the profit margin (in the title) and then just the fuel cost (in the body). – jcaron Feb 23 '16 at 18:21
