Only 16% of Americans said they outright supported usage, with another 37.5% saying that they were strongly opposed. 46.3% said they didn’t care either way, showing a strong sense of indifference towards the policy.

This survey also found that younger adults were most likely to support in-flight usage, with 27.2% of 18-24 year olds being in support, with the older age groups getting increasingly less supportive with age. Those older than 65 only said they were in favor 6.5% percent of the time, a 400% difference in support.
