Emirates cutting flights into Boston from 2 to 1 per day

New polls show Americans aren't impressed with President Trump's job performance as he nears the 100-day mark

United Airlines is almost as unpopular as U.S. President Donald Trump, according to a new Public Policy Polling survey released Thursday.

In a statement, the Partnership for Open and Fair Skies - the lobbying organization that speaks on behalf of American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines - said it was "laughable" that Emirates would refer to itself as a profit-oriented enterprise.

A day after Emirates announced plans to cut flights to the United States by 20 percent, the airline's president has called its decision temporary and said it has no plan of withdrawing from the world's largest aviation market.

But he did take a jab at United Airlines, which is part of a campaign opposing more US routes for Gulf carriers, over its handling of a passenger hauled from an overbooked flight. ("Golf, anyone?") Forty-nine percent of respondents felt the amount of time he's spent at Mar-a-Lago is inappropriate, while 36 percent said his taxpayer-funded trips to the resort are appropriate.

Voters prefer President Obama's foreign policy - and President Obama generally - over President Trump.

And with 51 percent saying they wish Obama was still in office, over the 43 percent who prefer President Trump.

The poll conducted by PPP surveyed 648 people on April 17 and April 18 and there is a 3.9% margin of error.

The airline company faced backlash when aviation officers dragged 69-year-old David Dao, a Kentucky doctor, from a flight at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport on April 9.

The poll found that while a whopping 47 percent of Americans negatively view the airline that's sparked global outrage twice in the last month, even more Americans have an unfavorable view of the country's commander-in-chief.

For example, 42 percent of Trump supporters gave his first 100 days a "B" grade, while another 23 percent graded him at a "C" or worse. "Their voters are considerably more fired up about voting right now".
