The past few years have witnessed the emergence of flight shame, a phenomenon characterised by feelings of shame or embarrassment about the environmental impacts from travelling by aeroplane (Henley, 2019). Ever since this phenomenon started to gain international traction, public debate on whether individual consumers should be held personally and/or morally accountable for their carbon footprints has significantly spurred. This can be observed in particular on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, where discussions about the legitimacy of air travel in the face of climate change have been proliferating (Becken et al., 2021; Mkono et al., 2020).
