Just found out today that there is going to be a $20 per ticket tax imposed for any tickets purchased after TODAY! You all might want to purchase any tickets you are looking at!

What is this new tax attributed to? Perhaps increased fuel costs again? Or is it an increase to help bailout the TSA and their grossly overbudget overspending on security?

Considering the airlines are having a hard time with fewer people traveling one would think the last thing they would want would be a new tax effectively raising fares higher.

Each time I find what looks like a good fare I am blown away by the increased price once the hidden taxes etc are included. I'm sick of it. frown

Will the travel agents be putting pressure on to combat these rampant increases?

Maybe it's to fund the new CAPPS II passenger rating system!?? Now we will all be color-coded based on potential security risk. Heil Ashcroft!!

doubtful that Travel Agents can exert much pressure, seeing as the airlies (NOT a typo wink ) are trying to starve them all out of business anyway by cutting/eliminating commissions.

Just check fare from denver for 7/19-8/02 and holy cow! Prices have jumped greatly since yesterday. Travelocity is showing 680 and expedia was showing almost 1000 and that is before they add on all of the taxes and charges. Is this just the wrong time to be flying down to Belize?

Not sure what the tax really is. I think it's labled as a security tax. Should know more on Monday.

Just keep watching the fares. They change daily.
