BA lacks ambition on carbon efficient flying

The May edition of the British Airways magazine High Life has an interview with Willie Walsh their CEO proudly reporting that in the 1990's the airline decided to increase fuel efficiency per km flown by 30%. BA is reporting that it has improved efficiency, and therefore reduced carbon emissions per km flown, by 28% between 1990 and 2006.

It has set a new target of a further 5% reduction between 2005 and 2025 a net increase in fuel efficiency of a measly 2 or 3% – the overlapping dates mean that part of the achievement of 30% by 2010 will count toward its much more modest target  for 2025. Willie Walsh repeats BA's objective of “neutralising our climate change impact over time” – the very long term obviously.
