Iron Horse Air, recently formed an expedition to the  Island of Komodo in Indonesia.  We had heard rumors of Komodo Dragons there which just recently gained special powers.

We smuggled, ER.... PURCHASED these dragons and took them to HQ for dissection.
we then Kidnapped,  uhm.. borrowed Crazy Eddie a world renowned survivalist, Drunk and part time entrail reader.  
It is said he is the last one of his kind.


After many cases of fermented Goats milk, Crazy Eddie managed to look over the entrails of the "Borrowed" komodos.
He told us that that would make great Haggis, we assumed his slurred mumblings were that would make great Hedges...

so we Hedged!, when he sobered up and told us what he said we made Haggis ...
if you know what Haggis is then well you know how it tasted...

After CEO Airbus101 finished his Haggis or tried, he proptly airdropped Crazy Eddie back to his original HQ.
and was later quoted God help them that guy makes awful Haggis. but we sure fell into that hedge!

Don't worry! I took one for the team. I bought a hedge at 500, so fuel is guaranteed to come down next week in order for me to lose money on my hedge.   :)

Fortunately it is only a 10% hedge.

Alas, having been forced to recruit a set of trainee shamans, Shotgun Airways recently suffered a somewhat horticultural nightmare.

'Go forth and create the lowest hedges possible!' : we instructed them.

Now Port Moresby doesn't have a single shrubbery above a foot high. The National Horticultural Institute is particularily upset, their famed Maze is now a mere abstract pattern of dying vegetation.

No-one ever told us it would be this tough running an airline :(

Note that it went down to 484 immediately upon this hedge.

Same here, I am struggling with building up my new Airline. 6 A/c's so far, and 2 on order and no money incoming. My hedge ran out today.

Iron Horse Air has sent a thank-you card to Crazy Eddie, and a haggis cook book...

True Airbus, but your hedge has at most 2.5 months left...

I doubt oil will drop within the next 6-8months. So the hurt is coming :)

~ It's the same for me, my cheap hedge ran out last week. Surprising when your fuel bill jumps up 5.2mil in a week.


~ Here I was almost at 28% PFO too  :-\

that may be so, but I saved a HELL  of a lot of money till that day comes...

 I just put in a Call to OPEC... and requested a price reduction since my hedge as you noted expired in a few months.They said I have a Christmas present coming
 ;)

As I'm relatively new to the game (started in beginner world for a couple of weeks and then started here when Modern Times 7 started), does anyone know if these prices are likely to go higher or will they at some point go back down to 2/300? Whats the highest anyone has seen in a previous game?

Well, my $312 hedge just finished... If I can handle fuel cost this week, I will hedge. If I can handle $600, it's not said I can handle 1000....
