Partnership for Open & Fair Statement on Misleading Poll from Gulf Carrier Protectors

WASHINGTON, DC (December 6, 2017) – In response to a new “poll” from the Gulf carriers front group claiming strong support for upholding current U.S. Open Skies agreements, the Partnership for Open & Fair Skies released the following statement:

“It is interesting that an organization that supports the continuation of illegal government subsidies that threaten American jobs would waste money polling those same Americans on what they think about obscure DOT procedures,” said Jill Zuckman, chief spokesperson for the Partnership for Open & Fair Skies. “Rather than asking Americans misleading questions about an archaic and ineffective process, this group should instead ask themselves why they want to put 1.2 million Americans out of work.”
