The French government’s recent decision to ban short-haul domestic flights between cities that are connected by a train or bus trip of less than two and a half hours has sparked some energetic debate this week about whether Australia could follow the French in moving away from short-haul flights.

However, without meaningful policy reform, the idea is unlikely to take off. What do you think LiveTribers? Should flying between Canberra and Sydney be abolished?
