Put simply, the U.S. is already taking plenty from air travelers. There is no real revenue problem with airports. Doubling the Passenger Facility Charge would constitute a significant burden on U.S. travelers. Passing such a bill would be a mistake; it would not only make it more difficult for middle and low-income families to fly. We can have – and deserve – better airports. And the way to achieve that is not by handing a check to airport authorities, but to encourage them to provide better services that travelers are willing to pay for.
