I have not reached any lease renewals in any of my games (less than 2 years game time), but I am wondering about the lease prices at lease renewal. Are the lease prices stuck forever at the original price or do the lease prices go down as the a/c ages?
2nd Q: Since I joined ATB late in the game, I am forced to buy scraps on the used a/c market. Sometimes the desirable planes are overpriced. Suppose I am buying a plane that is priced higher than the value. Is it better to sign short term lease, say 1 year, and wait for renewal rates to possibly go down? Or can the lease renewal rates actually go up, and I would be better off with 3 year leases?
