Especially the comparison of the revenue gap is exaggerating.

As I watched, I did note that he didn't discuss how taxes on each ticket, frequent flyer upgrades (purchased and gratis), credit card tie ins, cargo and crew costs effect income per cabin. A video or article expanding on these additional topics would be very informative. I recall watching an old documentary following a Virgin 747 - the documentary said that the plane, with passengers and cargo, earned $500,000 per flight. From that documentary, it seems that if you can fill a 747 regularly and fly it often enough (and fuel prices are low) you can make a bundle.
I also recall an article which mentioned airline credit card programs. It stated - without elaborating - that the airlines make a fortune on those cards. It would be interesting to have an article prepared on income earned by airlines for ancillary fees and programs.
It's all fascinating stuff and shows just how complicated it is to run an airline profitably!

After all, a lot of "all-Y" airlines have better economic records than most classic airlines. There isn't any reasons to be so condescending with Y pax, like in this video ("they are just here to fill the plane"... c'mon!)
