1. On international flights no tax is paid for the use of kerosene
This privilege was given to aviation in 1944 and is upheld until today. “The Convention on International Civil Aviation (ICAO) (Chicago 1944, Article 24) exempts air fuels …” https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aviation_fuel
Aviation’s grandfather rights are outdated!
