Last time I flew US Air, a few months ago, they DID include the tax & fees.

Including the tax in the ticket is a great marketing ploy -- many people don't even know they're paying it and even if they do it's a lot less painful than ponying up the US$35 at the airport.

With the addition last year of the so-called airport fee, Belize's international air departure tax is now the highest in the region, and the land departure fee (US$18.75) is also the highest in the region.
