The Airline Transportation Association has been playing the cheesy and completely inaccurate commercial in airport terminals accross the country.

Unfortunately, this is all part of the airline’s campaign to shift costs from them to everyone else. While this ad talks about corporate jets, the whole user fee and added aviation fuel tax would hit all planes from small single engine props on up. In addition to cost shifting, the majors want to control the administration of the FAA user fees - so they would pay less but get more. The new FAA administrator seems to be siding with the big carriers in this attempted land grab.
