A quick query. If I lease out all of a fleet type, do I still have to pay commonality costs on that type? The scenario - I am beginning to upgrade my fleet, and will have spare aircraft of a still in production type which is in demand which I own, as well as spare leased aircraft which I will redeploy or return. I am therfore looking at options for disposal of the owned aircraft. Leasing could be profitable, but only if I can dump the commonality costs - if not, I will sell.
Grateful for any thoughts.
