I should have made a thread last June about how MEA's ground handling company MEAG bought 54 Motorola walkie talkies and 12 Poyet wheelchairs. It's old news now...
Maybe I'll thread about how they recently put larger "Nothing to declare" and "Items to declare" signs and how they replaced the dark wall coverings with lighter colored wall coverings in the immigration/customs area in DEN recently.

This will seriously affect AA's profits. Rising Gas prices will seriously hurt AA. Those F350s are true gas guzzlers. They should've picked the Hybrid Chevy Silverado for ER capabilities and less fuel consumption.

I would guess diesel because they have more torque plus they have some fuel efficiency advantages over gas models. The disadvantage is emissions being high for the diesel model and there would be less places for the trucks to fill up if they were driven on public roads. The V-10 offers more horsepower but less torque but it would be easier to fill up if it were driven anywhere. The V-8 is probobly the least expensive of the three and the engine is shared with the F-150, so therefore it would be less expensive to maintain due to commonality.

Ford keeps going on and on about their "all new" F350. But looks just like last years F330! And their new slogan, "4 tires for the long haul" and "would you drive thru the desert with only one gas tank and no spare?" seem like a PR blunder.
But they have this new IDE "In Dash Entertainment". It is this incredible gizmo. Just by turning a dial correctly you can hear notes - I found country, Rock & Roll, and Jazz. They said it is called a radio. Anyway, its going to change the whole industry.
I think AA should go for the green label, run them on methane - there's an unlimited supply. Does anyone know whether the Rampers contract covers the F350, I think only the most senior get to operate them, and there's the two weeks of training in vegas before they are certified.
