Why flight EJU5841 made history this morning.
''At 05:20 this morning, easyJet flight EJU5841 took to the skies and made history. Because starting today, we will offset the carbon emissions from the fuel used for every single easyJet flight, domestic and international.

We believe flying is important - the opportunity to go abroad, to spend time with family and friends, to do business face-to-face and experience other cultures. But we have to balance this with the effect we know it’s having on the planet. So for every flight we operate, we’ll offset the carbon it produces by investing in projects that include planting trees or protecting against deforestation.

Making flying better and more affordable for everyone has always been part of our DNA. Becoming the world’s first major airline to offset carbon emissions from the fuel used for all flights is just one more step on our journey.''

Good for them, although I don't think this changes the need to fly less. Those of us that fly more than very, very occasionally need to fly less, but also offset....otherwise we're in trouble.

Right, so just another greedy money making machine doing offsets as an excuse for expansion. I don't think there is a truly sustainable airline out there, that would require a deliberate strategy of less flights and less total distance traveled each year.
