as sigma points out, oil prices are custom so there is no relation between the Gulf War and the price of oil in this game unless I'm mistaken. The Gulf War is responsible for the falloff in demand to Baghdad. I would assume that demand will return to pre-war levels in March or just after. I currently have a 150-seater flying with 4 people on it, so I hope that's the case. Does anybody have any past experience on demand to baghdad following the war? How quickly and to what levels does it come back?
