|| Hong Kong Airlines confirms suspension of London route ||
I can't help but wonder if the EU carbon-emissions scheme is behind these announcements?
I thought so too, could be this or their business model. [ demand? ]
The net cost of the EU emissions tax on a flight is trivial compared to things like fuel, crew and aircraft. I do not believe that the tax is causing routes to shut down.
I'm sure you're right. Lessened demand in Europe due to the recession.
Just the conspiracy theoriest 1/10th of me thinking out loud.
This tax is definitively a factor in many decisions being made about closing or reducing certain services to the EU right now.
Many thinking the same way. It's all in the mix of variables!
What's that claim based on?
Intuition, pure intuition.
