I was checking for airfares on one of the European destinations and found this:

Airfare : 38.00€
Taxes : 140.56€
Charges : 0.63€

Taxes represent 78% of the total price. Arrrgh!

they attract you to it, and if you go there, you think you save money, but then on the whole, you dont save anyhting!

wag na, manahimik na lang tayo sa bahay if ganun! unless company expense, sige sige sige, haha!

Marketing strategy -- they're saying -- look at us, we're willing to take us to (destination) for a song, almost .. its the government that imposes all those extras. Don't blame us.

Anyway, where you are, taxes go to social services naman yata. So okay lang. Sa Philippines -- ay no comment na lang ha.
