Quotes

According to Blair Koch, JetBlue Vice President Commercial and Shared Development Services, "The idea of asking customers to jump an additional hurdle before their flight is an increasingly antiquated concept. By having the right systems in place, we can remove this step, and even help identify and prevent issues that can hinder customers from fully enjoying their travel experience."
...What happens if your electronics are out of juice when it comes time to turn them on for security officials? British Airways says "If you are unable to power up your electronic device you will not be allowed to fly. If it does not power up then it cannot be placed in your hand or hold luggage."
According to Governor Rendell, co-chair of Building America's Future, "Usually commuters think traffic is like weather—it is something that happens to them and they have no control over it. But that isn't the case at all. The policies we put inin place, or the lack of a coherent long-term infrastructure plan, directly impacts the daily experience of Americans trying to get around their communities. This app gives commuters and passengers a tool to voice their frustrations to Congress. It is called 'I'm Stuck,' but the truth is America is stuck until Washington takes action."
