The Boeing 797 – Here Are The Clues We Have So Far

Article | February 21, 2020

Like all things at Boeing, the 797 program has had a turbulent year.

When the first commercial flight took off on 1 January 1914, the carbon emissions contributing to air pollution were probably not the highest priority. More than a century later, in 2019, the actions of young environmental activist Greta Thunberg helped raise awareness of the Swedish term flygskam — translated as “flight shame” — to the rest of the world. Her decision to cross the Atlantic Ocean by boat, instead of going by plane, to attend a United Nations summit captured the world’s imagination. In fact, it was Swedish singer Staffan Lindberg, who started the movement in 2017 with his pledge to give up flying.
