The current TSA fees are based on segments of a one-way or round trip with a ceiling price that cannot be exceeded. The current rates are good through next Sunday and will increase starting next Monday. So your ticket could cost more if you wait until next Monday to book.

According to this article the prices aren’t going to be that bad.

Right now the fee is $2.50 per leg of a connecting flight. Capped at $5 per one way trip, $10 per round trip. Now it will be a a flat rate of $5.60 per one way trip, $11.20 per round trip

A couple of bucks won’t make a difference to me, especially if it means keeping the flying experience safe.

What are your thoughts on the price increase. Interested to hear how many people even care or knew about the nominal fee increase.

    That’s not increasing security at the airport by any means.
