Empty used market?
« on: August 31, 2010, 06:06:58 PM »
What happened to used market? - there is literally no planes from "independent" companies there, just overpriced planes from Lunar with expired C,D-checks. Anyone to explain?

Hi

one C check normally cost you about $1M, and $4-5M for a D check

Most of the planes I put on the used market at a price which is $2-3M lower than the fair value, which compensate the C/D checks needed.
if you believe this is "overpiced", well, nothing is cheap in the used market.

For popular models, 20-30% mark up is typical even with AI leasors, and you still can make loads of money by paying a little premium without waiting.

Happy hunting for cheap planes.

Im just not interested in aircraft wich is due for D-checks. I dont have excess of cash at the moment, since Im running a fairly young airline. And it seems like the game engine is holding back the "leasing companies" since there is an abundance of (in my case) MD 80s. So the market seems to have dried up right now.

Lunar: Put your aircrafts through D-checks, and Ill lease them!

Bit of a fire sale (forgot to terminate a lease before a D-Check - s****!).  Boeing 733 on market now at a discount on value!
