VIDEO RESPONSE TO:
"What you don't know about your ticket can cost you"
Christopher Elliott, Special for USA TODAY10:43 a.m. EDT June 16, 2014
The flying public is being deceived by marketing ploys to believe that online booking engines have cheaper fares than the airlines. It simply is not true. The variation in pricing is due to a playing around with the taxes and fees. Any airline ticket agent or gate agent who daily prices fares and does ticket exchanges knows that. Also the practice of call online booking engines a "TRAVEL AGENCY" is also misleading. The online booking engines customer service representative is NOT A "TRAVEL AGENT". A professional travel agent is a knowledgeable person who has stayed in the all-inclusive resort, sailed a the cruise line who shares experiences that will save the customer money on their vacation. This bill is misleading just as this article. The traveling public is being duped into believing the new marketing terminology that is going to cost them thousands of dollars on their vacations and travels.
