Boeing 777-300
« on: October 14, 2010, 10:28:50 PM »
Looking at the used aircraft market, it can hardly escape ones notice that within literally seconds of a market refresh that all of the Airbus, newer Boeing and even McDonnell Douglas aircraft have been leased (there are undoubtedly more manufacturers but those are the only ones that I have noted). Now that airlines are starting to 'take off' - no pun intended - even the more expensive of aircraft such as the Boeing 747-400 are being leased at such a rate that if one has little time to endlessly refresh the used market then it is practically impossible to lease them.

I am therefore wondering as to why the Boeing 777-300 is now not appearing on the used market. I am aware that it was initially on the market at the start of the game, and that the lack of interest in the aircraft - due to the high price placing it off limits to start up airlines - will have resulted in it becoming unavailable on the used market, and consequentially it would not appear in the market refreshes. But surely now that airlines are actually placing orders for new 777-300s - demonstrating that there is demand for such an aircraft - it is time for the 100+ used aircraft of this type to make a resurgence on the used market? After all the 300s and 300ERs are the 'big aircraft' for the next 4 years...

Also noticed that. Don't know, there are over 100 in store of B777-300s, and none in operation. There are no B777-300ERs at all in storage. Maybe we get lucky...

I wish the 747SP's would fall off the market.

I am not sure if his is a valid thing, I am about to say :

But aren't 773's really popular planes that are not really in abundance in the 2nd hand market in real life as well?

They will all get scrapped eventually.  It just will take forever as other sps waiting to get sold cycle through the market.  They are just awful.  They make the il86 look good (okay, I keeed)

I'd agree.... if there weren't 109 in storage.

The first 773ER was delivered in April 2004, that explains why :P
