Airline fees reach $3.4B

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Airline fees have hit new heights nationwide.

Government numbers show airlines collected nearly $3.5 billion in baggage fees in 2010.

Delta Air Lines was the biggest winner at $952 million.

Hawaiian Airlines collected $54 million.

None of these fees are subject to taxes.

According to some analysts, without these fees, the airlines would need a bailout of their own.
