It’s costing more and more to fly these days, mostly thanks to extra fees.

A new study by IdeaWorks says the airline industry made $38 billion in fees just in 2014. That’s about $6.6 billion higher than the previous year.

The study looked 130 airlines all over the world.

United, American/US Airways and Delta were the top three making the most profit from fees. Air France and Ryan Air were fourth and fifth on the list.

The fees are for anything from advanced seat assignments and carry on luggage or airline-branded credit cards and WiFi.
