Last week, I booked a vacation to Hawaii.  This week, I find out that the airlines are collecting government fees and taxes and not paying them over to the FAA, as Congress permitted the FAA’s taxing authority to expire.  Now, in order to ensure that they are able to keep these fees, they have simply raised fares to include the fees they were collecting.   I will need to look into this further, but if they haven’t paid that part of my ticket reflecting taxes and fees over to the FAA, I should get a refund!
