Airline Fraud

leave a comment »


With the government halting operations of the FAA because of shutdown due to funding, supposedly it means cheaper tickets for travellers.  However, it’s been reported that the airlines are keeping the money by raising fares so the tickets cost the same.

This means that the airlines are continuing to charge about $25-30 million per day for taxes that the government isn’t collecting.  This means that the airlines are pocketing that money and are deceiving customers by saying they aren’t collecting taxes during the FAA shutdown.

Caveat emptor people.  Tight economies make for more thieves and crooks.
