Can anyone enlighten me on this subject. We came home on Sunday 27th Feb, flying with Brittania to Gatwick. I was a little confused as to when we had to hand over our $20, departure tax. (It has to be paid just before boarding at the Gate). We were ok, but there was one man there who had handed over his family's money prior to this, to an airport official, who had pocketed the money. I don't know what happened in the end, but our flight was delayed, slightly due to this event. It was a wonderful holiday, for us, but I am sure must have been spoiled for one family because of a corupt official. Does anyone know the outcome for this family??
