Even more infuriatingly, the new rules are outpaced by most aircraft manufacturers around the world. In fact, according to a September report by the International Council on Clean Transportation, the average new commercial jet was in compliance with the ICAO’s 2028 standards as early as 2016.
Let me get this straight. The author of this article finds it "infuriating" that the industry met the standards twelve years before they had to?

I did some package delivery on Christmas eve. About a six hour trip by car (even if you push the speed limit). I had a 27 knot tailwind and made the trip eastbound in 2 hours flat in my slow airplane. The trip back was brutal but it remained clear.
