This thing came to my mind yesterday when I was reading about the terrible act in Madrid:
Ever since 9.11 we have seen a new huge and expensive safety costs for airlines and airports. These things costs alot of money for airlines because they have to pay for it themselves. No government is paying that. And It's not the airlines fault that the different governments around the world are running some bad politics some times.
But why is it only the airline industry who pay for this? Especially when you see trains, buses and ferries still going on with the same procedure like they did before 9.11. The passengers on these types of transportations don't pay security taxes.
In my opinion its even easier to blow up a ferry with 1000 pax on it in the middle of the ocean then hijack an aircraft.
It is so easy to smuggle explosives in a car and drive it on the ferry because cars don't get checked when they are driving onboard.
Should the government remove the extra taxes for the airline industry or should they reduce airline security taxes and split it over to all 4 forms of transportations?
In my opinion: YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
