I have taken one flight in the last 11 years. I decided to avoid flying as I believe the recent culture of cheap air transport is massively detrimental to the environment and I don’t want to be part of that culture. I think we all have a responsibility to make sacrifices and to boycott where we can, in order to halt the runaway growth of the “fly everywhere” culture. I am actually taking a flight this summer (to take my children abroad on a special family holiday) – this will be their first time on a plane (aged 11 and 9). After this holiday, I plan to return to minimal/no flights.
