Fly Carbon Neutral, is it for real?
Actually, it doesn’t mean that the plane was using any sort of leading-edge combustible like one made from algae. All planes fly on ‘dirty’ jet fuel. What they mean by ‘Fly Carbon Neutral’ is that they help you find a way to offset the carbon emission for you since you fly with them.
Sometimes the airline company gives you a choice such as planting trees or contribute to a company that engages in reducing carbon footprints.
Whichever way, you paid extra to gain a better conscience. Not a lot mind you. If you fly a private jet, this extra expense is generally less than 1% of your ticket cost. Flying commercial airlines, you pay a higher percentage since the tickets price is lower.
