Sorry that I have to say this, but the title is as misleading as the whole project, they didn’t ‘operate on’ SAF, they mixed 2.3% through fossil fuel, which means they ‘operated’ for 97% non-sustainable. Also the agricultural oil is not sustainable either. Since we need a much bigger planet to fulfil demand for the remaining 97% of this flight, and all other flights. Who are they trying to convince here? I also love flying and also wish it could be sustainable, but this is just a jumbojet load of nonsense.

Virgin did a similar thing a while back, just as pointless.
