Ban business class to combat climate change, says airline boss

Jozsef Varadi, CEO of Wizz Air, a Hungarian-based low-cost carrier, has called on the industry to eliminate the premium seats from the skies, claiming that passengers who turn left on boarding account for twice the carbon footprint of those in economy. 

"Business class should be banned," he said. "The industry is guilty of preserving an inefficient and archaic model. A rethink is long overdue, and we call on fellow airlines to commit to a total ban on business class travel for any flight of under five hours.”
