Despite Strong Market Values Keep Falling
Values of older widebodies continue to face weakness as the effects of higher maintenance and operating costs take precedence over lack of newer products.

Consistently High Fuel Prices Cause Major Problems for Older Widebody Values
High fuel prices are never kind to older aircraft types. The difference in efficiency between new and old is largely a function of relative fuel efficiency, although lack of availability of the newer types can often prompt renewed interest in the older ones.
