    Actually, THERE goes Q1.....

    One poster implies that AMR has hedged 30% of its fuel cost by using futures, and, therefore, is bound to purchase at $60. Another poster say that AMR uses options and is only required to buy fuel at $60 is a worst case senario. I'm confused on this issue. Can anyone clear this up for me. Futures, options, or some other derivitive?
