Americans Still Willing to Fly

Americans Still Willing to Fly

Since Sept. 11, there has been speculation about Americans shying away from air travel. However, the latest FOX News/Opinion Dynamics poll shows 35 percent say they will be flying to their vacation spot this summer, up from 32 percent in May 2001. About half of vacationers this year plan to drive to their destination, down from 60 percent last year. The remaining few will travel by train (four percent), bus (three percent) or boat/cruise (three percent).

"Despite the recent focus on potential new terrorist threats, it seems most Americans are unwilling to alter their plans for what has really become a cherished institution-the summer vacation," said Ernest Paicopolos, a principal of Opinion Dynamics.
