’Flight shaming’ hits air travel

’Flight shaming’ hits air travel

A survey covering 6000 Western travelers shows one in five travelers is flying less as ’flight shaming’ propels them to shun air travel for the sake of the planet. The survey in July and August showed that 20 per cent of travelers in the US, France, Britain and Germany had cut air travel by at least one flight in the past year. Commercial flying accounts for about 2% of global carbon emissions.

I don't like to fly because paying hundreds of dollars to go through the experience of actually getting onto a plane just to be crammed like a sardine into coach for hours frankly sucks.

When are they going to start vegan fashion shaming? Synthetic material horribly damages our planet. Is that ok to say? I’m so afraid these days to turn around and find an angry Swedish teenager scowling at me from the shadows.

Ill believe the airlines when they signal a drop, people just lie to pollsters because they have been shamed or want to collect a stroke from someone for being goof. Anyone will do even an impartial pollster. It’s pathetic truly.

Cultural Marxism = flight shaming. People just start rejecting this and laugh at those pushing this nonsense.

Eh, maybe. But I these are the people who fly several times a year, and then boast about not taking one flight to save the planet to all their friends.
