Threat of terrorism PERSIAN GULF SHOWDOWN

It's your call

January 23, 1991

War in the Persian Gulf and Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein's threats of terrorism in the United States are not changing travel plans of Evening Sun readers and other callers to Sundial.

Despite reports from area travel agencies that plans are being changed, of 184 callers, 143, or 78 percent, said they had not changed personal travel plans, while 41, or 22 percent, said they had. And 147 of 182 callers (81 percent) reported that they had not changed their business travel plans, while 35 callers (19 percent) said they had.

Despite reports by some airlines of decreasing business, 59 percent (147 of 182 callers) said they would travel by airplane if they had to travel in the next few weeks, and 75 (41 percent) said they would not.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as a scientific public opinion poll would be.
