Take an airline flight in 2012?
Most Americans say they will not take flight on an airliner this year.
In our national opinion poll, we asked Americans whether they would take a commercial airline flight at least once this year.
The nation’s response: 54% no, 43% yes, and 3% undecided or no opinion.
The only age group with a majority planning airline travel this year: 18-29 year olds, 53% of whom said they’d take a flight this year. A majority of every other age group said they would not take an airline flight this year.
Poll Position’s scientific telephone survey of 1,155 registered voters nationwide was conducted January 5, 2012 and has a margin of error of ±3%. Poll results are weighted to be a representative sampling of all American adults.
