The market for narrowbodies may seem to be as strong as it ever has been in the past but this has not translated into higher values.
One of the principal issues for used values is the stagnation in new prices. Although the manufacturers may – will be – be applying escalation clauses the comparatively low initial base price for the aircraft will ensure that delivery prices are not as high as might be supposed. If the price of new aircraft is not really rising, and indeed those that are at the end of their product life cycle will actually be falling, then there is little justification for assuming that the value of used aircraft should remain unchanged.
