your turn to be surprised. Commercial jets number in the several of thousands, private jets less. Utilization of business jets does not match the 8 to 10 hours daily usage of commercial airline jets. Still, this is favoritism for the ultra rich jet jockeys. No other way to describe it.

Agree 100%. See no reason why they should be exempt.

I see no reason for "climate taxes" at all. Just one more way for governments to skim money from everyone, commercial OR private.

To paraphrase the Professor: "I'll believe there is a climate emergency when the people who tell me there is a climate emergency start acting like there is a climate emergency."

Sounds like John Kerry, who thinks that,"A private jet is really the only option for a person like me."

But of course, the Toffs and Elites are exempt as usual from all the bullshit rules they impose on all of us peasants. The nerve of these low dogs to complain about the climate tax! Make them eat cake!!

These are the exact flights that SHOULD be taxed. As they do not generally do high-capacity they are having more impact per passenger than commercial jets. Bass ackwards once again.

What happens when you surrender control to an elected and unelected ruling class in the hopes of keeping you "safe". They will live increasingly like pashas while you lose more and more of what you once had and enjoyed.

So, why have a 'climate tax' when private jets are zipping all over the place. There are so many flying around. I wouldn't be surprised if there are more private jets flying than typical passenger planes...

Ill take a wild guess and say there's more private than passenger planes in service.

Considering that at 9:30AM EDT out of the top 20 aircraft types in the air, 5,199 are commercial jets, I'm going to say there are more passenger planes in the air than private jets. Also note, 17 out of the top 20 aircraft types are passenger jets. The other 3 that aren't commercial jets are 172, 182, and Piper Cherokee, not even jets.

This is still just pandering the ultra rich who have private jets.

Of course there should be no taxes on private jets - Saint Greta of the Divine Thumberg needs to be able to get around quickly to spread the gospel...

Guess that includes the jets used by the EU organization. Could play a game of contracted flights where passengers buy into a corporation for during the flight to get cheaper fuel. Ah yes and to claim a wrote of since the buy in was a loss. Probably get a bigger wrote off than for a business expense.
