In the past I have posted on industry aircraft valuations and market lease rates.
Due to the economic slowdown, the market has seen an excess of available overal frames (acute in some models), and definite broad pricing softness.
Here are estimated current market value (USD$mil) based on oldest to newest airframes, and the sample monthly lease rates (USD$,000) based oldest to newest airframes.
Information is derived from transactions and valuation thru January09.

The bargain of the month is definitely the MD-80 series which continues to see a slide in values in recent months (-16.8%) and is cheaper to acquire then even a prop or small RJ.
Some models actually have increased in rates, namely the 767-300ER up a fraction 0.8%, while others like the 777 and large RJs are holding their pricing quite steady.
