Taxes which are usually 20% of the fare.
Fuel cost is usually 20% of the fare.
Staff Expense is around 15% of the fare.
Other Expense is around 40% of the fare. 
and the remaining 5% is the actual airline profit.

Airlines usually divide passengers into two category 

Business Travellers which are less price conscious and travel mostly a Monday and return on a Fridays whereas the second category is the leisure travellers who are ultra price conscious.
