Waste of Money: T.S.A. 'Security Fee' Doubles on Airline Tickets
A security fee that the government charges airline passengers more than doubled on Monday, from $2.50 to $5.60.
Lawmakers last year approved an increase in the fee, which is tacked onto the cost of airplane tickets, as part of a budget agreement.
Additionally, passengers will be charged twice if they have a layover for a connecting flight that lasts longer than four hours.
