You're right, last I heard we do not hedge fuel.

OK JJ, pretend like I'm talking to you real slowly. Does this statement imply that FedEx doesn't fly into major hub cities, but instead flies into "out-of-the-way" airports to serve those large cities? Is this statement correct? Does SWA do this very thing at most major cities in the US? BTW, yes Ruthie is most likely a woman and yes I do believe that the article is very positive for FedEx and no, I have no idea why you would think I don't.

In my opinion, the main "lesson" from this article was to charge what it actually costs and not which airports the airlines are flying in/out of, etc...
