Regarding the April 17 story “Japan’s airlines fly empty domestic flights as they stick to schedule,” what an utter waste of resources in the land of “mottainai“. Flying almost empty airplanes at a time when climate change is threatening the planet, is highly irresponsible. Thanks Japan Times for bringing this up. I hope this increases our awareness and makes companies more responsible in their actions.
