nice idea, but almost zero (emission) chance of this. Perhaps as a one off promo, but I think it would be more an earn of SC ties to the amount of the carbon offset. Remember it's just a few $$ for the shorter domestic legs (iirc) to offset, I mean if you gave DSC for <$5 everyone would be Platinum pretty quick. I would suspect single digit SC earn in such a scheme.If they wanted to really put their money where their mouth is, they could offer DSC for all flights offset by carbon credits.
Plus if you can earn 10SC for flying MEL-SYD, I can't see it making sense to double that for another couple of bucks. Very nice for sure, but that wouldn't pass the bean counters imo.
