Weekend survey: When should an airline or travel agent show the “all-in” price?

When should an airline or travel agent show the “all-in” price, particularly when it comes to fees that used to be part of the ticket?

(Update: This survey is closed. Here are the results.)

As you know a debate is going on in Washington between the airline industry and a group of consumer advocates, travel agents and corporate interests. One side is trying to make the booking process as opaque and confusing as possible. The other is demanding transparency.

Congress will have to decide who is right. In the meantime, you can weigh in on this issue.

Please send me your thoughts or post them in the comments. I’ll have the results early next week.
