Should airlines disclose fees before you buy your ticket? Survey says …

Yes. Heck, yeah.

Only 6 people out of the initial 812 respondents — just 0.7 percent — said “no.”

These preliminary results are, of course, no surprise whatsoever. I mean, why wouldn’t a business disclose the full price of an item before you buy?

It begs a follow-up question or two: At what point in the ticket buying process should the fees be disclosed? At the time of the purchase? When you’re shopping? When you get the initial fare quote?

The comments are open.

Meantime, here’s the survey.
