Research says there’s an environmental cost that comes with first-class air travel

( Turns out there’s an environmental cost to the extra leg room, free wine, warm towels, and hefty price tag that comes with first-class air travel, according to new research.

The Business Travel Research Centre at Cranfield University in the United Kingdom found that the carbon emissions level from first class may be more than double of those of passengers in the economy section. As part of their “real estate calculation,” they considered the average space occupied by first-class passengers and the actual load factors in both premium and economy cabins on transatlantic flights between North America and Europe.

Keith Mason, director of the center, said another variable could make the carbon footprint between coach and business classes even greater, but the research team didn't have access to the data to include in their analysis.
