Millions of people rely on the airline industry to travel quickly and efficiently between cities in the United states and throughout the world. Since 1978 where, when laws were put in place to promote competition in the market, the nation has relied on competition among airlines to promote affordability, innovation and make service improvements.

Ancillaries is simply the revenue airlines make from non-ticket sales such as early boarding, extra baggage, better seating options etc. which helps airline achieve two objectives. Not only is it a source of extra revenue but just as importantly it enables airlines to differentiate themselves from the competition and apparently drives the bottom line for most of the airlines.
