    I hate airport taxes -- who doesn't, I suppose? Nothing quite makes my reward travel feel "unrewarding" like the $200+ air passenger duty which is levied for itineraries originating in the UK. But when it comes to airport taxes, I think the Simon Bolivar International Airport of Maiquetia in Caracas, Venezuela takes the cake. Per CNN: "Anyone departing from the Simon Bolivar International Airport of Maiquetia in Caracas now faces a levy of 127 bolivars ($18) to pay for a new air conditioning unit installed earlier this year, according to a statement on the airport's website."
