Flying Worse Than Five Years Ago, with Christmas the Most Frustrating Travel Season, Most Americans Say

Published on : Saturday, December 23, 2017

U.S. Travel AssociationAmericans believe flying is more frustrating than five years ago, according to a new Morning Consult survey released today by the U.S. Travel Association.

 

 

Travelers especially dread flying around the Christmas holiday, the time of year overwhelmingly cited as the worst for air travel. Because of such headaches, Americans avoided 32 million air trips last year, costing the U.S. economy more than $24 billion in spending.

 

 

“Air travel isn’t a privilege of the few—it’s an essential pillar of our economy and our American way of life, especially around the holidays when families gather,” said U.S. Travel Association Executive Vice President of Public Affairs Jonathan Grella. “With aviation infrastructure funding being debated in Washington, the survey results indicate that addressing these problems is more urgent than ever.”
