As you can see, the flight cost was £11.04 but then an additional charge of £24.95 was added to cover taxes and airport charges.

So why is Manchester airport ripping passengers off to the tune of £1 for a couple of plastic bags at security?

These bags can be bought for about £14 a thousand, which is 1.4p each, so for less than 3p worth of bags Manchester airport is charging the passenger £1.

That's a profit of over three thousand percent - no wonder it's know as rip-off Britain.

The traveling public has already paid a massive fee for airport security, they should not be paying more.
