I'm suggesting a Vltava DO with Chatham House rules.

Flight shaming is very popular nowadays, so wouldn't be surprised if that would have been the main angle of the article

Considering Hesari's agenda, are there any other options?

Yesterday at HEL, the Hesari guy asked if I wanted a paper. I told him I don't need an overdose of climate anxiety. We parted on good terms.

How was contact initiated? I mean, from where did they find contact info to true idiots?

One of reasons to say no to myself was the fact that this kind of interview would only trigger negative consequences and interpretations, the more so if I tried to act serious. So the best thing to do would be to make a Valtava show and play all beyond limits

It looks like our perverse things attract many.

I was once contacted by a large danish newspaper and asked, as a A3 gold member and "points-expert", to comment on SK eurobonus in general. I quickly realised this was about the fact that some flights earned better on A3 than on eurobonus. I respectfully declined and between the lines told him that this would probably be the stupidest thing for me as a A3 gold member and "points-expert" to comment on.

Maybe they can offer you a LH upgrade voucher you can never use to compensate for the interview.

Nebassz - is that an actual thing outside some green-red bubble in Sweden? In HS (or liite) some time ago there was an article written by a very opinionated "journalist" including interviews with some goodie-two-shoes better-than-thou I-won't fly(-except-if-I-want-to) types, which drew quite a negative feedback against the mentioned types.

I've also been wondering if this "phenomenon" is a thing magnified by the press, or if it actually is a change going on. I have only heard about it in a few articles, and I even know a fair number of people from the "green-red" bubble! So far I've put it in the same box as the articles about tourists coming to Finland in great masses to experience the cool summers...

Try explaining the concept of flight-shaming to a Chinese tourist
