Spirit says the new rules are unfair: Why should airlines have to include taxes and fees in their advertised prices when other purchases are under no such obligation?

What purpose does it serve to bury the taxes and forbid their disclosure? I can't think of one good reason. YMMV.
Still, there’s nothing preventing any airline from breaking out those taxes and fees for consumers, either in its ads or when consumers pay their airfare. In fact, Baldanza says that Spirit is planning on breaking out a 7.5% excise tax that was initially included in the base fare, something he said was illegal to separate out until now. “We’ll see if the DOT wants to fine us on that,” he says.

Dear airlines, take your fees, your security bullshit, and the retards you employ and just tick them right up your incompetent asses.You suck at everything, especially making money, they love bailouts, because they suck and I hope there is reincarnation and they all come back as ditches for cum.Fuck off.
