Some of the 10 A320s to be phased out in the coming years could be destined for the junkyard, despite attracting current market values of around $5 million. The early vintage 10 A320s, comprising five -100s and five -200s, were absorbed by British Airways as a result of the takeover…

American Returns Take Edge Off B757 Lease Recovery
The return of 19 B757s by American Airlines between 2007 and 2008 is unlikely to have a material impact on values, but will perhaps contain any non-interest related rise in lease rentals. The 19 aircraft are powered by PW2000 engines, while the remainder of the American B757 fleet are powered…

VIP Conversion Provides Source of Demand For Fokker 100
The conversion of three Fokker 100s into VIP transports by French company TAT on behalf of Russian interests is unlikely to herald the recovery of values for the beleaguered types. Values of the Fokker 100 remain in the doldrums due to the absence of demand and sustained high level of…
