Abstract : The report is intended to explore how certain contrary demographic trends might net out in their effect on air travel. The approach involves projecting the volume of domestic air travel under, first, two alternate assumptions about future population growth (the 2- versus the 3-child family) and, second, two alternate assumptions about future economic growth: a 0.25 percent annual reduction in the work week (fast GNP growth) and a 1.00 percent reduction (slow GNP growth).
