High-priced food and beverage items at three major airports have prompted a concessions company to conduct an audit after customers complained online.
The company running the audit, OTG, runs restaurants, stores, and concessions at LaGuardia, JFK and Newark Liberty airports.
Travelers at those airports had flagged the company on Twitter, after paying nearly $30 for a Sam Adams Summer Ale and nearly $11 for an order of fries, according to a report from The City.
OTG told FOX Business that the high prices came about by someone simply inputting "the wrong prices."
"Once we learned of it, we immediately took action to correct and began proactively auditing our entire system to ensure there were no other mistakes," OTG said. "We took this initiative on our own."
The audit comes after the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey board last year approved airport price increases of up to 10% following a minimum wage hike in 2018 for tens of thousands of workers starting in 2023.
The Port Authority says terminal operators and concession management companies set prices at airports based on comparing prices in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan areas.
FOX Business has reached out to the Port Authority with a request for comment but did not hear back before publication.
