Flyers won't benefit from expired travel taxes
Airlines raising prices to profit from expiring travel taxes, consumers may see little benefit
By The Associated Press

DALLAS (AP) ' Some airline customers won't see savings this weekend even though several federal taxes on tickets have expired.

US Airways and American Airlines say they've raised fares to offset any tax savings.

That means instead of passing along the savings from expired taxes, the airlines are pocketing the money while customers pay the same amount as before.



The expired taxes can total $25 to $30 on a typical $300 round-trip ticket.

The taxes expired after midnight Friday night when Congress failed to pass legislation to keep the Federal Aviation Administration running.
