More air travellers are expected to fly in the US this summer despite airline incidents

 A record 234.1 million passengers are expected to fly on US-based carriers this summer, apparently not dissuaded by a series of customer-relations blowups in recent weeks.

Airlines for America, which represents the airline industry, attributes the projected four per cent increase in summer travel to improving economic conditions, higher household net worth and lower airfares. 

To accommodate the increase of about 100,000 more fliers a day, airlines plan to add 123,000 extra seats a day, according to the trade group.
