WASHINGTON - U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow issued the following statement on the announcement from the trade group Airlines for America that it will not support proposed new international standards restricting the size of carry-on bags:

"We've had our differences recently with A4A, but when they get it right I want to make it a point to say so. The crackdown on the size of carry-ons that was proposed by international carriers would have been unnecessary and yet another slap in the face to travelers.

"We strongly believe that steps to improve the flyer experience are not only the right thing to do, but just plain good business and good economic policy. We look forward to broadening the dialogue with our friends in the airline industry on how to address infrastructure problems that are frustrating passengers and preventing the U.S. air travel system from keeping pace with the rest of the world. We concur with them on the issue of air traffic control reform and have found a way to address their objection to an adjustment in the Passenger Facility Charge, so we see an opportunity for partnership."
