Haven't many of you been wondering why EK and QR order such large amounts of aircraft? where they will use those aircraft to ?
Well I was wondering if EK and QR don't want to start off their own leasing business like GECAS, ALAFCO or ILFC. They could easily make those aircraft profitable !
I was wondering if that's what they have behing their minds with such big orders. anything been said about that

I highly doubt that whether either carrier is planning such a scheme. It is a distinct possibility however that if either QR or EK start to wane and they can't find a use for their masses of aircraft that they could turn to leasing as a means of preventing financial hemorrhaging.
