With record number of Americans flying in 2015, Airlines for America (A4A), the industry trade organization for the leading U.S. airlines, recently conducted a survey on the American travel experience.
A4A Chief Economist and Vice President John Heimlich will review key findings of the survey, such as the increase in the number of American’s traveling today compared with the past 17 years, as well as the accessibility and affordability of air travel. The survey also identifies the demographics of the most common flyers, their satisfaction levels with air travel and what is important to them during their experience.
EDITORIAL NOTE: The State of Air Travel in the United States survey was conducted December 14-22, 2015 as an online survey of 3,019 members of the American general public, age 18+. This study references similar research conducted by Gallup on behalf of then-Air Transport Association of America (now A4A) in 1998 for trending purposes. The 1997 study was a random sample of 3,016 Americans age 18+ conducted via telephone.
