Jumbo drones should be attached with the aircraft which will suck the excess fuel and than detach from the aircraft landing safely near airport.

This is technically a chemical fuel trail left in the sky when additives to rhe fuel are taken into account

What the hell man, if there is a need to dump why not to dump it smartly. Why don’t they put the excess fuel in a container like thing and parachute it to the ground, this might increase the expenses but not more than just wasitng it and causing harm to the enivironment as well. This issue could be raised to international level.

So roughly 2 billion kilos of fuel is dumped every year. Not nice, but the amount of CO2 outputted by planes is far worse as 500,000 to 600,000 metric tonnes of fuel are burned every day and a large percentage of that becomes CO2 afaik possibly more than 100% because 2 parts oxygen from the atmosphere combine with the one part carbon from the fuel.
