Airplanes fart big and JAL smells bad

Deeper look into an article from TIME, February 12, 2007
“Greenhouse Airlines”

Just in case you don’t know the word “fart”, it means おなら (onara) in Japanese. More and more, airplanes are becoming a great source of air pollution (大気汚染). According to a study by The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the carbon dioxide (二酸化炭素) airplanes release (放出) into the atmosphere (大気) at high altitudes (高度) have a greater warming effect (温暖化) than the same amount of carbon dioxide released on the grounds (地上で) by cars or factories. One single long distance flight (長距離飛行) can release more carbon per passenger (乗客一人あたり) than months of driving. Although air travel accounts for only 1.6% of total greenhouse gas emissions, it is the fastest growing source of air pollution in many countries. And with annual airline passengers worldwide expected to double (倍増の予想される) to 9 billion by 2025, it is a great concern.

But perhaps (もしかしたら), a bigger concern about airplanes may be Japan Airlines. On February 6, 2007, Japan Airlines (JAL) announced its new business plan to decrease its work force from the current 53,100 to 48,800 by 2009, cutting 4,300 workers. It also announced to continue to cut employees’ base salary by 10% to reduce payroll expense (人件費) by 500 million yen. Is this legally allowed? WJA will discuss these legal issues in comparison to how U.S. airlines rose and are rising from their financial hardships.
