Production Rate Hike Will Continue to Constrain Residual Values
Narrowbody Residuals Not Expected to Increase The pressure - and resulting planning - for a further increase in narrowbody production early in the next decade will do little to aid residual values for both older and newer narrowbodies. There is little doubt that the recent above trend growth in passenger…

Aircraft Asset Assessment - B737-800
Market Presence. In the context of re-engining from both manufacturers, the effect on residual values of the A320 and B737 has been relatively modest in terms of deviation from previous projections. While re-engining offers improvement, it is more incremental than evolutionary. If the difference between the existing model and the…

B737-800 Values Weaken Slightly But Still Favored
