Are planes using less fuel now that we have less baggage?

    I would think the same amount goes into planes as before, since you always want more than enough in the tank in case of a delay once in the air (I was on a 4 hour flight from Baton Rouge to Houston once, you can drive there quicker than that) and travelers are probably bringing just as much baggage as before, just more people are carrying on rather than checking their bags. On the other hand, travelling is down and many routes are being cut, so potentially there are less planes in the air, which means less gas being used.
