Mar 24, 2021 Opening Statement

If I had to hazard a guess, most of our constituents fly budget airlines, not business class, and certainly not private aviation.  Roughly a third of the cost of a flight comes from fuel, and nearly half for budget airlines.  The less fuel you burn, the less emissions you produce.  Passengers want cheaper tickets, and we all want less emissions.  Both lead to the same free-market forces that drive airlines to purchase efficient aircraft.
