Aero-News Quote of the Day

airlines] don't pay. I don't see the captain sitting up in the left

see him turning around and looking back at 200-300 passengers who
have a 7.5-percent tax added to the price of their ticket. THAT'S
who pays. When I'm sitting in the left seat of my Cessna 172, I
don't turn around and see anybody behind me paying the tax when I
buy my fuel."
