I'm not sure if this is a bug or just weird luck due to the fact only about 50 747-400. frames were ordered by actual players (although game engine is taking delivery of lots going right into storage).
My issue is that when they first arrived, my purchase value and price paid was around $155m for the max range version. I ordered when the plane was announced and seem to recall I got some discount off list...although minimal. One of my frames is 23017.
The issue is the new order price on the same plane is about $15m less than my value...and even the minimum alliance sale price is still $10m above a brand new order. The recommended price is over $200m, which is $60m more than a new one with no wait.
Is this a bug...or just some weird quirk in the fact that only about 50 frames were initially ordered by actual game players and so the price deflated? In fact so few were ordered the end of the line warning has already been issued.
I've never actually seen a plane type that has often been popular decline in sales value like this. Honestly, can't think of a single period in AWS were deflation happened to plane price.
If a weird quirk then I guess it,s caveat emptor.
