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.
Most airlines use differentiated pricing a form of price discrimination to sell air services at varying prices simultaneously to different segments. Factors influencing the price include the days remaining until departure the booked load factor the forecast of total demand by price point competitive pricing in force and variations by day of week of departure and by time of day. Carriers often accomplish this by dividing each cabin of the aircraft (first business and economy) into a number of travel classes for pricing purposes.
