If you really MUST fly, this is the way to do it.

Here's a bit I did for The Times. It's kind of silly, as one might expect, and suggests that rarer, more luxurious flights might be one solution to the deleterious ecological effects of air travel.

My conclusion, though, was that I'm just too common to really enjoy the high life:

It was impossible to get a good look at what the pilots were up to though. Like my much-prized window seat it was impossible to enjoy because people kept coming up and pressing more Champagne upon me. It was quite annoying. Perhaps I’d be happier in economy.
