British Airways Pursues Biofuel

By 2014, British Airways could be powering its fleet with biofuel, reducing its carbon emissions by 145,000 tons per year. The airline recently announced a partnership with Washington, D.C-based Solena Group to build Europe's first low-carbon jet fuel plant in the U.K., which could result in a 50 percent reduction in BA's emissions by 2050.

This got us wondering: How are other airlines faring in their efforts to clean up an industry notorious for its high levels of pollution?

Tell us: Would you pay more to fly on a greener airline?
