Airlines beat mobile operators

Its not just the TSA or similar bureaucracies that mess with the public, the airlines themselves are becoming more unfriendly all the time. We just bought the tickets for Alison's yearly migration back to Canada, and every year it's weirder. Disregarding most of the process, here's the additional taxes and fees portion alone: Yup, $84.68 in taxes and fees that were in no way visible when browsing airfare. For the fare we paid at least, that's almost exactly a 50% tax rate (do the math).
