Airmageddon (air + Armageddon)

"Airmageddon” (air + Armageddon) can mean several things, such as very bad air pollution. An “airmageddon” at an airport occurs when flights are cancelled (or delayed) and many passengers wait for hours at crowded gates.

“Airmageddon: Flight delayed 90 min, now its on time. I’ll settle for something in the middle” was posted on Twitter by Chan on March 27, 2011. “WTF....every LA flight is delayed. #AIRmageddon #fcuk” was posted on Twitter by Jasmine Pennamma on July 15, 2011. “Also, considering how many flights got cancelled, today is now officially #Airmageddon” was posted on Twitter by Sam H. Escobar on July 25, 2011. “AVOIDING ‘AIRMAGEDDON’ | Cancelled flights on APEC week now over 300” was posted on Twitter by All Pinoy News on October 31, 2015. “Travel Hell: Hundreds of Flights Cancelled Across US as Industry Braces For July 4 ‘Airmageddon’” was posted on Gateway Pundit on July 1, 2022.

“Carmageddon” (car + Armageddon) is a related term involving cars. “Trainmageddon"/"Trainageddon” (train + Armageddon) is a related term involving trains.

This graph from @speaktomo shows CO2 as a minimum of 850 million tonnes CO2 for the year, but more up to date information will be arriving soon. Presumably this is just flights so does not include total CO2 burden of making airports, etc.
This one just came to mind #Airmageddon
