    Fuel Hedging

    I know Doug was burned on fuel hedging and since sworn it off, but has anyone in management considered pitching to him hedging here at $60, since AAL is flush with cash?   It appears the Fed is determined to devalue the dollar and that will result in rising oil prices.  Oil is skyrocketing in...

    Oil Rising Rapidly

    It is scary and interesting that oil is sailing through $80 (overnight) per barrel and no-one seems to care or notice. Is it because Bush and Cheney, the "oil guys", are not around anymore to blame? The fact is oil is screaming up because we are devalueing our currency, and oil is traded in...

    Oil Discussion/Speculation

    Daily world oil production is 85,000,000 barrels per day. Daily world oil consumption is 87,500,000 barrels per day and climbing. Do the math. YVINTERN: Shall we pass an expost facto law making speculating illegal, then throw the speculators into some dark, damp dungeon? By the way, LCC...

    Oil closes above $81.52 per barrel

    Did anyone notice that oil closed at a record high of $81.52 per barrel today and is above $82 in after hours trading? The US dollar is in free fall and the Fed just cut the Prime rate .50 basis points in a drastic move to stave off the coming recession. This rate cut is further undermining...

    Get ready for your 4% paycut 12/31/06!

    Inflation has taken a 19% bite out of your buying power since 2000. This year you lost another 4%. When is enough going to be enough? Even at 2000 pay rates you would make 19% less today. Management knows this, that is why they do not focus on salary but rather stock options and bonuses...

    "We keep you alive to serve this ship!"

    I wanted to start a new thread discussing what I think describes why LCC management does the things it does: 1.We exist to serivce the debt. 2.If we service the debt on time the stock price goes up and management gets to cash in their opitions. Don't worry about the long range prospects of...

    0801: CNBC reports Virgin America will file its paperwork to begin flying NYC - SFO today. It was unclear as to the airport, however, this is the first flight segment. It appears there is another threat to LCC on the horizon. This appears to be a huge threat to JetBlue as well.
