The U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow issued the following statement on the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) decision to pursue allowing cell phone calls on passenger flights:
"A policy change of this nature should only be made after exhaustively contemplating whether it improves the travel experience, and there are some strong indications that travelers themselves do not want it. Polls we have seen by Quinnipiac University, the Associated Press and others have concluded that the public opposes in-flight phone calls by very convincing margins.

"The travel community urges the FCC to be as thorough as possible in seeking data for its consideration of this policy move, as the FAA was in revisiting its policy on the use of electronic devices in-flight."
The U.S. Travel Association is the national, non-profit organization representing all components of the travel industry that generates $2.0 trillion in economic output and supports 14.6 million jobs. U.S. Travel's mission is to increase travel to and within the United States.
