Finnair says that weight data helps the safe operation of flights. AdvertisementAn airline’s trial policy to ask passengers to weigh themselves before flights has sparked controversy, with critics saying it could be triggering and embarrassing. Travel journalist Yvette Caster, also interviewed by GB News, called Finnair's move to weigh passengers "fatphobic." Finnair has announced it will begin weighing passengers with their carry-on luggage to better estimate the plane's weight before take-off. Uzbekistan Airlines began weighing passengers for the same reason in 2015.

Intra-European travel has been doing very well," said aviation analyst James Halstead, adding that limited planes meant ticket prices could stay high.

Spot Northwest European jet fuel prices were at $957 per metric ton on Wednesday, up 5% from before the assault.

Russia's airspace is closed to many global airlines, forcing carriers to detour around the nation. Routes to and from Asia are up to four hours longer. Finnair's flight to Japan is four hours longer, while United treks an extra two hours to India. Carriers like British Airways, Finnair, Dutch carrier KLM, and Lufthansa, are flying about one to three hours longer than normal to avoid Russia. "Instead of a three-man crew, the extra hours can tip an airline into a heavy crew of four — and when there is a global pilot shortage, that can be really inconvenient."

Air France and KLM are the latest airlines to join in on the "basic" business class trend: offering passengers a cheaper business class ticket, without some of the perks usually associated with the class. These are usually sold in comparison to the full business class experience, called "flex", "flex plus", "comfort", and "elite". Here are some of the airlines that have gone basic with their business offerings:Air France and KLMAir France business class seat. Thomas Pallini/InsiderQatar Airways introduced its own unbundled business class in 2020 — offering Classic, Comfort, and Elite business tickets — and it has since then added an additional tier, the Lite business class ticket. Lite business tickets could cost as much as $3000 less than elite business tickets, according to reviews.
