Highest Fuel Price ever in MT World?
« on: September 05, 2011, 04:35:51 PM »
Im not complaining, but is the $1950ish price the highest ever in an MT (or any world)?
If not how high has it gone before?

Also do you guys and gals think it will drop, or stay this high for a while?

The fuel price currently is 886 USD per 1000 kg which is quite normal for this period.

Sami, I am not complaining at all, just asking whether one can expect it to go up, down, or stay at this level.

It's bad enough that most people know approx. when a new plane will be available so that they can pre-plan their airlines, let alone know what the fuel prices will do into the future and for the duration of the scenario.

Well the thing about is in the real world, a lot of airplanes were designed to airline specs, of course we can't do that.
I suppose Sami should not tell us about what will happen, but we can speculate at least (like it happens in the real world).

Imperial vs. Metric

At least I think.

Yep, now I realize why it seemed really high. Based on what Ive read I guess it can go up another 50% or so based on past games.

if its 937 dollars for 1000 kg and more than 2000 dollars for 1000 lbs. Not really sure how that adds up since 1 kg is 2.2 pounds. which would mean that the price should be a lot less for 1000 pounds of fuel. Or i just can't remember how to convert

Imperial vs Metric only changes the display for route distances from km to miles, and runway lengths from m to ft, at least in 1.2

And yeah, if the price is $937/1000 kg, that makes it $2000/4700 lb.

I'd say it's just picking a number from somewhere entirely different on the display, but I have no idea where that might be. I'm curious, any chance of a screenie yevgeniy?

I just switched to imperial and my fuel costs are the same just the number per 1000 pounds is off I think.

I think we stumbled on a bug. The $2k price should be per kg, and the sub $1k price should be per lb.

Of course we are all charged the same thing so it is just for viewing purposes,  is it Sami?

Definite bug, I assume Sami has multiplied instead of dividing in the formula that changes the display. I don't have an airline in 1.3, can someone please tell me the price per 1000kg and price per 1000lb that get displayed for the same day?

*edit* If it is 937/1000kg, the formula should be 937/2.205 = $425/1000lb. If Sami has made the formula 937*2.205, it would display $2066/1000lb. */edit*

Seems about right if it was the other way around
1 Kg = 2.2 lbs
Sami has it as : $937 USD / 1000kg = $2,061 USD / 1000lbs...but it should be other way round.

or am I getting confused with volumes, weights, etc....school was to long ago...and no Kgs for me then anyway :-)

OR .... if it's not a bug...then switch to Kg's and enjoy much cheaper fuel prices ...lol
Pity I am already using Kg's.

It could be a lot simpler...937*2.2 = $2061, when the conversion should be $937/2.2 = $425.90 per 1000 lbs. That makes gas about $156 per barrel, or $2.85 a gallon (wholesale).

What is the fuss about the fuel prize? If you regular reset your prizes is accounts the new fuel prize right? Ticket prize is hardly a factor when fighting for a market share so just keep doing that and you will maintain your market share and so maintain your margin.

As long as the prize is not a factor it is kind of useless to have changing fuel prizes. Perhaps 1.3 brings a little change as it has the option of fuel contract.

Let's get prizes to win on importance, that will make some good fights!

Hello

I'm not sure that your ticket price takes fuel price into account...

Most airlines have seen a sharp decrease in weekly profits due to the fuel spike.

Sami might confirm this, but you need to adjust your ticket price to offset the fuel increase, keeping in mind that your competitors probably won't do that.

Food for thought

Agree with Flobacca, you need to reprice. What I do though is just go to price management and reset default prices. Usually, you'll only see the average price/class only go up $3-4, but it does make a difference.

And because the system average price is based on what consumers are willing to pay/versus fuel costs, etc., you usually don't see a massive drop off in loads
