Cargo? Really? Why?! Seems to me that making transportation more expensive would both be very environmentally good, and also help bring jobs home from China etc. Isn’t that what everyone wants, except for major corporations?

It should a rebate of 1% / 10 people onboard. A jumbo of 500 would get 50% off.

Op forgets to mention that the reason for these exemptions are caused by international wto rules that state that fuel for transport cannot be taxed. Which is what private planes also are.
