Most, but not all. Their plans were and are for at least 10 of the 737-700 acquisitions to be leases in 2004-6. All of their 737-800's are/will be leases. Their last (2nd) quarter report states leased aircraft as:
13 x 737-700
5 x 737-800
5 x 737-200
That was out of a total of 60 aircraft at quarter end. The 200's were already arranged to be gone at quarter end but the agreements hadn't been finalized, so they still show up above.

Does B6 own their fleet? I know they leased a few planes but I thought I saw something about them owning the majority of them.
There is no way that Jetbrutal own their fleet. First of all they are in the very early stages of their leases and enjoying the slightly easier payment schedules, but they in no way own their fleet... not even close.
Just look at their profits, and then look at the cost of the A320 and how fast they add them and there is your answer.
LH only has a few aircraft on finance lease. those are two A321s, 16 CRJs (could include EW, not sure) and 5 ATRs (at its regional subsidiaries). the information i took from the current annual report. it also seems that the last two 742s were on Finance lease as well.
If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.
