Awhile back, the feds decided to do something that happens in almost no other industry – it mandated that the entire price of an airline ticket, including taxes, be the advertised price. Now there’s an effort in Congress to repeal that decision. Those in favor of this change say that taxes should be broken out as it’s done in nearly every other industry because it’s unfair for the government to be able to hide taxes increase in the fare. Others, of course, think that’s not right.
So, two questions this week.
1) Should this rule be repealed?
2) Will it actually be repealed?
