I am a scientist, and fail to see what volume has to do with the mass of a gas. I stand by my calculation that 1 tonne carbon equals 4.4 tonnes CO2 until someone proves me wrong.

1 tonne of carbon is surely not equivalent to 1.8 tonnes CO2.

Molar weight of carbon = 12 g. Molar weight of CO2 = (12 + 2 * 16) g = 44g.

Double standards? Complain about drunk passengers, but not about crew running along a hotel corridor banging on everyone's doors and possibly waking them up?

That number is a maximum, not a fixed amount. It is also the liability of the carrier, so has no connection with whatever Boeing might have to pay out.
