I was just wondering what the lessors or owners of the airliners from all the " Bust " airlines have put them? It cannot be cheap to leave them at the airports they stopped at and how would they get them to where they want them without a pilot or insurance or whatever is needed? There must be a lot of planes for hire now!

Some go to Majave until they find new homes. Monthy parking fees at Mojave are cheap.

I was in PHX a couple weeks ago and there were 3 ATA 752s (I think, memory fails me) sitting lined up nose to tail on the side of a taxiway.

List of known ones so far:

Skybus still has their planes at their 2 hubs in CMH/GSO. At CMH: N521/522VA, N571/572/574SX, N551/552SX, 504SX
At GSO: N501/502/553/554SX. N573SX is M.I.A. but may be in BFM for Aigle Azur. I expect movements to begin after May 1st or whenever their last lease payment

Aloha 737-200s: 2 in SJO that were in mx, believe the rest that have come across are all in VCV.
Aloha 737-700s: 2 have made their way to the UK (SEN or QLA, forgot I'm afraid) at least.

ATA 757-200s: LCQ or VQQ in Florida. The VQQ ones would be good candidates for freight conversions.
ATA 757-300s: VCV
ATA DC-10s: MZJ
ATA L1011s: VCV
ATA B738s: Mixed, but a good amount in DHN

EOS B757s: Could end up in MEX or YXX as that's where the leases began on some of their planes, but too early.

Who pays for all these ferry flights?

TZ D10 information: The a/c should be going to World as one pic indicates.

The person who seized the aircraft, who then tries to recover the cost from the operator who defaulted (or takes it from the security deposit/reserves) or builds the cost into the price charged to the next operator.

Will the seats on the EOS planes be returned to the manufacturer? Or will they remain with the plane until a new owner is found. I bet those planes could make great private jets, right?
