Where have the used airplanes gone????
« on: November 21, 2010, 08:52:09 PM »
Why can't we find a decent 737-200 at the used market? There are 332 of them stored but none at the market and with the backlog of the orders for new aircrafts getting bigger and bigger its becoming really tough for newcomers to find a decent plane :-[ :-\

It's part of the game, try not to focus on name brands. It doest matter if you are useing as long as its turning a profit for you it does matter.

I have leased other types of aircrafts that suit my needs better at least for the next months. Since I am quite new at this game I was just wondering why there is such a strong supply of oldies when there are quite a few newer jet aircrafts catching a tan at the desert  :laugh:

For the same reason millions of cars sit around going rust...  The owners aren't ready to sell, or the car doesn't run, or a million other reasons.

If the "tanning" aircraft were released all at once, the "F5ers" would snap them up immediately, and the game would be out of used aircraft.  Now they just snap them up more gradually.  ;D

I'll say it again.  There is plenty of Russian tin available, and at short distances, they make money.  No wait, low lease rate, have at 'em.

Even brand new, the TU-154B-2 is only $16 mil.  Only $10.5 mill down to lease 10 of them.  Turn them 3 times a day, and you have better than 4,300 seats of capacity, with no line waiting.
