Abstract:     
As part of a major revision of the taxation of fringe benefits, Congress in 1984 attempted to tax airline employees when they obtained free flights for their parents. The flight attendants' unions ultimately mounted a successful campaign to exempt these parent passes from taxation. This article tells the story of the legislation, and of how the unions succeeded in their campaign to repeal it.
