I mean no offense, but, from your experience, are archeology professors working with a seminary trying to discover what happened in the past, regardless of their beliefs, or trying to find what they believe, regardless of if it's true or not, or some combination of the two?

I'm not buying anything from the supermarket or furniture store. If I did, I would maybe check for bugs. Sadly, that's not really an option for the software without the source code. It could still be decompiled and read, but it'd be quite the chore. It'd be great if some trusted industry professionals were provided the source code to verify it.

Certainly not the right person to ask. According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Environmental_impact_of_aviation though, air travel accounts for about 2% of human CO2 emissions and 1% of the annual growth in CO2 emissions. Also these emissions were previously not controlled but the UN aviation arm agreed to set limits on them in 2016. The aviation industry has also contributed "possibly as much as 4.9 percent of radiative forcing."

Basically I'd say definitely expect prices to go up across the board. There will still be good deals relative to the regular prices but they will be higher than they are currently.

As a counter to this these flights are going to their destination whether their full or not. Cheaper flights just ensure maximum transportation effeciency. I do hope that their will be more regulation on air travel to either force them to increase effeciency faster or decrease the volume of air traffic (either through increased prices or increased carrying capacity per plane) because it is definitely a problem.
