I just learned about these "flights to nowhere" taking place. It struck me as both funny as well as pretty cool. Considering lockdowns, travel restrictions, and everything else, it's an interesting concept to go on a scenic sight seeing flight. Also helps the airlines out financially, so win win for those interested (and can afford it lol).
Of course there's other criticism, as is with anything. Some environmentalists are finding issues with it.
"Passengers will be "helping to destroy the Great Barrier Reef they view from their windows," said Mark Carter, a campaigner from Flight Free Australia."
(Referring to carbon emissions)
Still, it's less carbon emission than normal flights. Plus, the views really look amazing.
