Fuel & Crew

....I seem to remember a certain senior CargoB manager in BRU being interviewed in the flemish press about the sky high fuel price in mid 2008, if I remember correctly, he claimed that they could still make money with a crude oil price of $135/barrel operating B747 classics???

Perhaps volumes/yields were better then than the current market, however even at the time I considered this "wildly optimistic"!!!

I would like to know what type of pocket calculator he was using....I will put one on my Christmas list !

Best of luck to all at ACG, hopefully we may have turned the corner economically speaking.
