More Airfare Fees Coming

Looks like we'll be getting more fees tacked on plane reservations.

 

Airline ticket prices will rise on July 21- MSN Money

 

I'm sure some airlines will increase their fare and blame it on the Feds.

    I think this is bologna!  And I don't get why passengers with long layovers should suffer... Especially on domestic flights, if they remain airside, then they don't have to go through security again.  Makes absolutely no sense at all.  I think this new system is just blatant theft.  A slight increase in the Fed gas tax would be more understandable than this...

      I totally agree, yet our gov't has long funded many things far away from aviation using the Aviation Trust Fund so you figure it all out. 

       

      superchief1, I hope so too however; my guess is that will not happen unless Ralph Nadar does it.

    I guess I had assumed that all of the fees had to be used specifically for TSA and other air transportation issues. It now appears it is also funding the notorious 'general fund'. So much for a democracy with 'no taxation without representation'.

    Just another in the long list of hidden taxes imposed on us by government.  They hide them by forcing businesses to collect and remit.
