“The age of old-school travel is over, just like business class”

*on flights under 5 hours – Wizz Air

Wizz Air is not holding back with this video.

The airline accuses business class passengers of “flying heavy”, while Wizz travellers “use our money to get as much experience as we can get”, and ‘we only pack what is necessary’.

According to the video, the carbon footprint of a business class passenger is twice as big as a Wizz Air passenger.

Wizz is calling for change and people seem to have mixed feelings about it.

 

The reaction

People on Facebook are kicking off.

Here are a few comments from the video thread:

“They’re making it seem like their lack of a business class is due to “Enviro Friendly” business mantra when in reality their lack of a business class is due to LOW funds.” – B. Justin, Facebook

“I fly legacy airlines because they don’t name their airlines after p*ss.” – L. Carpenter, Facebook

“It sounds like green washing to me” – K. Ursic, Facebook

“How can some additional space between seats in the aircraft cause damage to the environment? Are these people nuts? Tired of this environmental millennium bulls*it. People just make s*it up” – A. Luthero, Facebook

What do you think about the new Wizz Air call to action?
