Around the world, airlines are working to manage a tricky-trade-off: fuel consumption versus flight time. To consume less fuel, the airplane has to go slower—but that means flying longer. Flying faster shortens the flight time, but the undesirable side effects are increased fuel consumption and a corresponding increase in emissions to the atmosphere. Photograph by Wikipedia
