English term or phrase: costliest
Easyjet's costs were already nearly 60% higher than Ryanair's. Then they bought the high fare GB Airways which has an average seat cost of €132 and today they have signed a deal with travel agents, the costliest parasites in the travel industry, both of which will increase the already large gap between Easyjet's high fares and Ryanair's low fares.

agree  Jairo Payan: De acuerdo. Ademas no queda la ambiguedad de caro y costoso, adjetivos bastante diferentes en su significado. Un mercedes es costoso pero no necesariamente caro, todo depende del beneficio que traiga.
