EU airlines emissions law a done deal

European Union lawmakers approved a deal today that will charge airlines (including non-European carriers) that fly into and out of the EU-27 nations to pay for their carbon emissions, according to Reuters.

Right now, US carriers are not charging emissions tax to its customers going into and flying out of Europe but that will probably change too starting 2012.

I’m looking at my magic eight ball and seeing US carriers charging new fees for checked in luggages for European flights, and in the economy section, the disappearance of Inflight magazines (and the occasional free newspapers); pretzels for dinner and lunch; and limited intake of sodas, coffee and tea.
