The ability to make an offer on used aircraft

In the used market its all or nothing. You pay the price or you walk away.
In most markets though there is the opportunity to offer.

When I am selling a plane, maybe the market is slack and I might like to receive an offer less than my asking price to move the plane on.

When I am buying, maybe I see lots of one model or one plane has sat around for a long time so I might buy but not at the asking price.
Perhaps you could when listing a plane also set an 'auto accept' limit - so plane is asking $10,000,000 but seller will auto accept $9,700,000 but anything less is sent to the seller for consideration.

This means a lower bid they buy has to decide if they want to risk losing the plane or pay the asking price, because maybe someone else comes along

Auction downwards, however ;)

Would fit very nice alongside the also requested possibility to "free" a plane so the lessor can buy it without returning it.

Very nice proposal.

More realistic and surely more fun.

Until this is implemented, I’ve done so via PM in the past. The seller has put the negotiated price on private listing to me, of course this is more effort though.

Yes I have done the same.

But it relies on players being available a lot and many aren't or just drop in/out
