Some of the costs are quite low. The crew costs are on the low end. A lot of the figures are binary, which they are not, there is so much that goes into the variables that the video makes into a flat figure. It doesn’t work. This is going to propagate half-truths everywhere.

Are you flying out of a major airport? I know airports like YYZ and LHR have some of the highest. The bigger the airport the higher their fees. It also depends on the countries and customs/duty taxes. They prob have some BS tax for anything.

No, I whole heartedly agree. Still cool to see some of those hidden taxes/fees you’re paying.

If you expand the “taxes and fees” section, it’s all there.
