TSA Doubles Security Fee on Tickets

tsa2The Transportation Security Administration is fast solidifying its title as America’s most irritating bureaucratic organization. On Monday, the TSA security fee on tickets doubled for non-stop flights. Previously, the charge was $2.50 for a non-stop flight, but now all tickets will carry an extra fee of $5.60.

What’s worse, any trip with a layover longer than four hours will be counted as a separate flight and charged with an additional security fee. Congress approved the increase, but American fliers have voiced their anger.
