    What gives? Terminal fees are payments for non-existent services so the airport authorities better include a see-you-again-soon drink, a cup of coffee, a bottle of mineral water, a sampaguita lei, being serenaded by the airport employees, or porters bring your luggage to the check-in counter for P200. Can they?
