        So isn't Russia thereby saving the climate? Or is it bad no matter what because it's Russia?

            The question is how high does an airspace reach? Are there any limits? Beside the plane's limitation

                That moment when Wendover shows a place youve been. I worked in the international terminal at Ted Steven in Anchorage. The airport now specializes in cargo aircraft, with only limited pax flights.

                              As an air-traffic-controller, this video is full of bullshit. Any pilot or air traffic controller operating in Europe would tell you the same. Look up flightradar24 and see where most European air traffic flows to Asia go through. It’s not Siberia - it’s the Black Sea. They pass underneath Ukraine. Also, Russia is part of the governing body of ICAO - the international civil aviation organisation, and as such are bound by its rules and laws, including granting the aircraft of other nation states the right of passage through its airspace. Yet, as a sole sovereign of its airspace, like every other country on thr plabet, it has the sole right to decide who can and can’t. That, by the way, is one of the first rules of the Chicago Convention of 1944, which Russia DID SIGN AND RATIFY, despite what the video says. Last but not least, it does not have a policy of one airline per country. It simply provides better conditions to national flag carriers, like Lufthansa and British Airways, which have a higher status than low-cost European companies. Last but not least, if you compare Russian flight fares to fares in West Europe, they are much lower. But seeing as how every flight pays taxes to countries it passes through based on distance traveled, amount of fuel burned in the airspace and the weight of the aircraft, if you have to pass through Siberia, even if taxes are cheaper, naturally you would pay more, seeing as hoe you would travel 10 times the distance you would travel in Europe and burn 10 times the fuel, because Siberia is massive. Overall, all of the “facts” in this video are total bullshit and could be looked up with an internet connection and a half-hour Google search. Or just ask any pilot or air-traffic-controller. What a load of bullcrap....

                                  This is such a ridiculous behavior, almost childish. I'm not just talking about taking money but closing their airspace for some airlines is even more ridiculous. Wtf man just because you cupcakes have personal problems with one countries government, why do you have to mess up the day for thousands of people having nothing to do with your feelings getting hurt?¿🤦🏻‍♂️

                                                Nothing wrong here..charge what the traffic will bear.Nothing is free, and pricing is the best way to determine market demand. I'm cheap-I will take a budget airline to save a few $$, others can afford 1st class; why do so many people ignore the benefits of the free market?

                                                  It's not that overflight fees are too expensive; it's that Russia's selectiveness with what airlines can fly over it prevents airlines from competing with one another.

                                                          Between constant hacking and air space restrictions, Russia is literally the lamest country in the world. There must really be nothing going on there.

                                                          If Russia won't let you fly over it, I feel they should be taxed the value of the fule wasted going around. Shouldn't wast fule over a money making pull. Could also do it back to them.
