Lets see: $182 less $29 less $29 = $124 for taxes & fees?

So I guess they charge for bags…

Yeah… “Total : 178.58” for a $29 each way flight. I get there are some fees and all that, but really??

If they are trying to lure people in with low fares, this is having the opposite effect for me.

Sounds like they charge you for not crashing. How do you get $182 out of $29 one-way?

What part of “TAXES” and fees do you not understand? We are taxed and over taxed for everything in America now and it is only getting worse and worse. Under $200 to and from the Bahamas is not a bad fee, however, JetBlue’s fare during the same period via Ft. Lauderdale is only $178.

What a scam. This sort of disingenuous advertising is offensive, but seems to be the new normal in the airline business. Very disappointing.

Obama is about to add even more taxes and fees onto airline fares so hold on to your wallets. $124 in fees on a $60 RT? Will probably look cheap after the new taxes. Oh, and the new $ won’t improve your flight experience or service – it goes to debt reduction. I don’t have a problem with debt reduction but I have no faith that money won’t get spent elsewhere.

How does $58 turn into $189? That’s a lot of taxes and fees!

Um, before slipping into freakout mode, maybe you guys should consider that flying to Bermuda is technically international travel, and is know to be very spendy in terms of travel taxes etc. THEY set the fees for travel into their airspace and airport, NOT the airline And what in the world does Obama have anything to do with how expensive it is to fly there?!?!? If you just googled, you can see that “There is a $25 airport tax for all passengers. Bermuda’s Airport has the world’s highest landing/parking fee for airlines, so the overall price for the air ticket… Read more »

In addition to the $25 landing fee, passenger also get charged a $35 departure fee, which the airlines pass on through tickets.

With all of that stuff added in, all of a sudden a $182 ticket to Bermuda sounds like a good price.

Indeed, a $182 ticket to Bermuda does not sound bad. Unfortunately, the Island they’re flying to is “Grand Bahama”, which is approximately 900 miles away.

WHAT?
Whatever does Bermuda in the headline have to do with the Vision/Grand Bahama story? Bermuda is closer to Halifax Nova Scotia than it is to Miami! Bermuda is Britain’s oldest surviving Crown Colony and Grand Bahama was started by Gangster willy Groves.

Please do some homework next time.

$124 in taxes in fees for international travel is very typical. The airline is not misleading anyone when it says its fare is $29 each way. Grow up donks.
