Southwest posts 2Q profit of $161 million
Southwest 2Q net income rises to $161 million, fuel costs soar 64 percent
By The Associated Press

DALLAS (AP) ' Southwest Airlines is making more money than it did a year ago because of higher fares and the acquisition of AirTran Airways.

But fuel costs are up 64 percent from a year ago, and Southwest's profit isn't as big as analysts expected.

Southwest said Thursday that it earned $161 million in the April-through-June quarter. That's up from $112 million a year ago.

The average fare went up about 8 percent. Southwest and other airlines raised prices several times this year to offset rising fuel costs.
