FAA may shutdown at midnight

We hope this doesn’t happen, but if it does you could save a lot of money by booking your flights, and save from having to pay federal tax on tickets.

A partial shutdown looks increasingly likely because Congress hasn’t been able to agree on legislation to extend the FAA’s operating authority, which expires at midnight Friday. Whatever happens in Washington, airlines will still operate as normal and air traffic controllers would remain on the job.

But airlines would no longer have authority to collect a federal tax on tickets, which could be a temporary financial boon for passengers.
