To what extent is rising dissatisfaction with the airline and TSA security experiences, combined with rising air fares, putting the skids on summer travel plans.
We're going on anecdotal information here.
But according to a recent online survey conducted by LowFares.com among its subscribers, potential travelers are giving up and not going on vacation. Some 63% said they were cancelling plans altogether because of rising airfares and non-stop hike in the price of gas. More than 15,000 people responded to the online survey from among LowFares.com 1.5 million subscribers -- who were also asked about summer driving plans.
According to the responses:
--Nearly three-quarters said fuel and airfare increases have impacted their travel plans.
--Nearly two-thirds said they cancelled their trips.
--Just over a third said they changed destinations, or shortened itineraries.
