If a particular city has two or more airports market forces will tend to attract the less profitable routes or those on which competition is weakest to the less congested airport where slots are likely to be more available and therefore cheaper. For example Reagan National Airport attracts profitable routes due partly to its congestion leaving less-profitable routes to Baltimore-Washington International Airport and Dulles International Airport.
A second financial issue is that of hedging oil and fuel purchases which are usually second only to labor in its relative cost to the company. However with the current high fuel prices it has become the largest cost to an airline. Legacy airlines compared with new entrants have been hit harder by rising fuel prices partly due to the running of older less fuel efficient aircraft. 44 While hedging instruments can be expensive they can easily pay for themselves many times over in periods of increasing fuel costs such as in the 2000–2005 period.
