Revenue passengers

Revenue passengers are defined as passengers who have paid for their seat on a flight. This excludes certain people that may be on the plane, such as young children who do not have their own seat and airline employees flying for free. Passengers whose seat was paid for through a frequent flyer program are usually included though. Delta’s 195.5 million revenue passengers made them the second-most popular airline worldwide in 2018.
