Air travelers should know what they are paying for. A two year old government regulation, overturning a 25 year old practice, now enables the federal government to hide the outsized, ever-increasing tax amount that airline customers pay to the federal government. This is not pro consumer. This is pro government.
Tell Congress to support transparent airfares and allow airlines to show how much of your ticket price is actually going to federal taxes! If you believe the current system is wrong, you can weigh in by supporting the Transparent Airfares Act by clicking here and writing your legislators with an expression of support.
