What can be done is for more research and development in electric propulsion, alternative fuels, more aerodynamic airframes, fuel reduction methods, more efficient flight paths, less holding, etc.

Isnít that something to aim for?
It is an admirable endeavour, however the industry to date has actually done little other than grudgingly agree to an ETS that doesn't start for another eight years. In that period net emissions are supposed to be neutral, while 'technological advances' of unknown origin, as yet defined benefit are somehow to materailise and ensure the net emissions actually don't rise with the forecast growth in ASK.
