It was my understanding that you could make fuel deals with your base city. I can't find where one can do that. Would someone direct me please?? I would appreciate it very much! :laugh: (Typical me, sometimes I can't see beyond my nose)!

Anyone to help with understanding of "monthly fee"? Is it a flat fee you would need to pay to the supplier - and than you would need to estimate if a discount would offset that?

I can't find an old feature.  There used to be a graph of on an airline page with number of passengers carried, with weekly updates...

exactly - no use selecting a supplier until you have ~10 planes.. MINIMUM

Sami, I have one question that isnt addressed with the manual but i just want to clearify.

If i sign a contract, that contract is locked until it expires which at that point may differ from the original, correct?

In other words, these contracts do not have variable terms or random adjustments or are made by companies who might not honor them due to any reason, correct?

The way I understand it, it is purely a discount vs. the market price.  It does not lock the fuel price for the duration of the contract...

Removed due updates, added back later, perhaps.

Renewal of the deal, when it expires, is done with that day's terms. So the renewal will have different discount and cost than the original deal.


P.s. Before someone asks.. Fuel hedging feature will be a separate one.
