Weren’t we ferrying fuel out of there as a way to recoup?
That is probably not an option now, they aren't refining enough of their own so they have to import it now and they are running into problems doing that.

So, you’re saying that only an MBA grad can have an informed opinion on whether a particular stock is a good buy or not. Dispute his reasoning if you disagree.
He managed to repeat and contradict himself in the same post, while not making any sense from a financial analysis perspective, all based on his "data facts". There isnt reasoning to dispute.

You're a bartender with a fine arts degree talking like you're an MBA grad when you claim you want to join a fraternity that values professional credibility above all else. Think on that before you post again.

And for the love of God, please tell me that's not a professional headshot as your avatar pic. This isn't LinkedIn.
I don’t think we will make much progress on this discussion so I’ll stop it here. Don’t assume things about others that you don’t know to be true, just giving my insight to a question.

Um not really. You are talking the country supply. As wink alluded to countries will do a lot to ensure service. If they cant pay in dollars then there are reduced or eliminated landing fees in addition to paid in jet fuel. With the recent unrest the practice may have changed but even then it’s not like we ferry fuel on every flight. If I was more motivated I could look up some recent flight plans with fuel load but that would require more work on my part. And I’m on vacation.

We typically ferry fuel to a lot of Caribbean destinations so we don’t pay the extra costs there. Heck we even ferry domestically. It surprised me how much fuel we ferry out of Charlotte. We must have a pretty good discount there.

I misunderstood what he was talking about. The country is running out of fuel though, which is ironic since they sit on the largest or second largest oil reserves in the world.

My objection to Nittany's post was more about his delivery than anything to do with Boeing's stock. No reason to beat the FNG about the head and shoulders (and mock his pic) over what amounts to a difference of opinion. It was poor form.

Rough week for Boeing. Good on the Air Force for holding them accountable. Too bad the Navy won’t do this with the piece of shit contractors they hire to work on our ships. I found everything from hazmat to literally shit in V-2 and V-4 spaces while we were in the yards.

That’s on top of the sheer laziness I saw from the shipyard workers...

One of the T-39 pilots at VT-86 was medically retired when he shattered both ankles punching out of an A-6. The depot folks didn't connect the horizontal stab correctly and he went vertical right after takeoff and couldn't recover. The pilot said the civilian responsible got a one day suspension.

Another one was my buddy was the OpsO for the Jax depot, he was on the first flight for a Prowler after depot and the HSI/Attitude display started sliding out of the slot as the pilot pulled back on the stick and the pilot had to hold it in as they took off.
