It takes a spike like this to realize the increib;le benefit of fuel supplier contracts (if used correctly).

I have 2 contracts that I locked in for long time that are worth mentioning:

Contract 1: I pay 227k for an 8.4% discount. Today, a 5.2% discount contract goes for 9 million!
Contract 2: I pay 1.8 million for 7.9% discount. Today, 5.9% discount goes for 13 million

Funny, my dashboard says fuel prices are at 432USD. Does the currency vary beyond USD?

Well over $1000.  I seem to remember it peaking at c.1400 in one game.

$432 USD per 1000 lbs, in your case?

lbs? Mine is showing per 1000 kgs. Since a pound is about 0.45 kg the difference in price makes perfect sense.

Just wondering why the average prices aren't raised when resetting them. I thought average prices are adjusted (a bit) according to the fuel price.. Have been noticing they didn't, but thought it was because I opened new routes. Now fuel price has risen a bit again, so I reset the prices again, but they actually went down by some dollars.. Can anyone explain me why this is happening? Am I missing something?

The ticket prices follow the fuel prices - in general - but not exactly on week to week basis.

Fuel has just crossed the 900 mark. Is this an unusually high figure for this world? And does the world pricing follow real life events, like say the 2008 financial crisis? My profits have almost nullified by the fuel price increase and if this keeps on, my airline's gonna get bust pretty soon. Whats' the fuel price trend like?

Fuel usually tops out at between $1100 and $1400 (in 1000 kgs).  I would recommend buying out your fleet and/or upgrading to a more fuel efficient type while you still can.

Well I've got 733s and 734s on my fleet and chose them after much consideration. As per my calculations, compared to the 737NGs, I pay about 100k more per month per aircraft in fuel (when fuel at $900), but the leasing cost for the older models is about 60% of the NGs and I save a minimum of 300k per month by leasing the older aircraft (leasing savings only). Overall, the economics is better or at most on par with the newer models.

The real problem I'm having is getting a higher LF. Most of the routes I fly have high competition with supply much greater than the route demand (on average, the good routes have 1.5-2x the supply) and the increasing RI is not increasing my market share on many routes. Also being a relatively new airline, my flexibility with cash is very limited and I can't make any major fleet changes without going bankrupt. I've stopped spending for the short term and am just waiting for my weekly transactions to stabilise to get an idea of my actual income. Hopefully things should improve in a while with increasing RI and CI.
