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.
Often the companies combine IT operations or purchase fuel and aircraft as a bloc to achieve higher bargaining power. However the alliances have been most successful at purchasing invisible supplies and services such as fuel. Airlines usually prefer to purchase items visible to their passengers to differentiate themselves from local competitors. If an airline s main domestic competitor flies Boeing airliners then the airline may prefer to use Airbus aircraft regardless of what the rest of the alliance chooses.
