    bottom line

    Over the last three days CNN-IBN aired a series of reports that exposed how Air Deccan used underhanded methods to boost its bottom line. The first report showed how the airline overbooked on their flights and regularly off-loaded passengers with no explanations and no refunds.

    What doese `bottom line' mean in the above paragraph?

    Please explain it.

    Re: bottom line

    Hi,
    I think it means their profits. When you calculate sth, there are several or a lot of lines. The last line, at the bottom, shows the result.
