Well, For all of you forum members who don't believe anything about the September 11 Security Fee. Here is proof

10Jun 658 GULFPORT/BILOXI, M ATLANTA, GA 1049 1300
10Jun 659 ATLANTA, GA GULFPORT/BILOXI, M 1935 1955
Total for 01 passenger(s) FARE: 91.16
TAXES: 12.84
PFC: 7.50
9-11 FEE: 5.00
MISC: 0.00

I had to pay $5.00 which is very good considering some airlines are charging 11.00 and 15.00. I am not complaining, and if this fee will help me be safer on my flights, I agree with it.

Is the Security Fee something else than the Insurance charge most of the International Airlines charge to their pax. Average will be around USD 8 per segment...

The 9-11 Fee is charged now for every flight Domestic or International. When I flew in January, I didn't have to pay it, but in April and June I had to. June 10 is my next flight.

And what do you think you're going to get for that $5.00?

What do you think you're likely to be told if you asked the FAA or the CEO of whatever airline?

Do you think you're going to be shown receipts and have this, this, and that pointed out at the airport?

Ha! fat chance of that.

You would more likely be told something like "well we really can't get into that. It's for security purposes".

I'm willing to bet my pancreas that that $5 "security" surcharge is going straight into the "general fund" and will be used for everything from new stationery to aircraft tires to stockholder dividends.

Nothing more than a veiled fare increase and yet another illusion of safety.

Good One Matt,

I didn't think of Datt.  Smile

You are probably right. $5.00 for a coke for the pilot, $5.00 X 34 for a new tire. Yeah, That Security Fee is just a disguise. But lets give it that Fat Chance you were talking about and lets see if it really works (which I doubt it will)

Actually MattD, you would be surprised to know that the TSA collects this fee from the airlines on a monthly basis and is accounted for seperate from the other general funds.

TSA has been progressive enough to become one of the few federal agencies that allow online payment of fees due to them. You can check out the website for airlines to remit their monthly payments at http://diy.dot.gov/tsa/ or read the more detailed list of options and accounting regulations at http://www.dot.gov/911fees/feeinstr.htm.

In canada that tax is $24 for EVERY ticket, no mater how much the ticket cost! And we still have the same no-brains working at the airports with the same equipment...

Since a short time ago I call it "ripp-off fee". Why ?
Because some airlines such as Lufthansa charge you 9$ per segment (!!) whilst others only charge you 5$ and others again have dropped the fee altogether (DBA for example).

At Gulfport, Our Security Screeners probably started their career in prison. We have the most careless screeners in the state of Mississippi. We give them $5.00, and all they do with it is "stuff it in their pocket."
