Airline taxes

Jump to last reply

I was just wondering... How come with airline tickets, the cheaper the fare is.. the more the taxes are?
I have seen the taxes on a ticket more than the ticket itself. I paid about $1,765.00 for our airfare to Europe in Sept this year. $1,375.00 for tickets $390.00 for taxes. I could have got an airfare for $1,210.00 for tickets and $590.00 for taxes or about $1,800.00! what is it with that?
