Lease: The airline use the plane in same way as if its were there own. Own staff etc. The owner would be the leasingcompany. The best way to use if you can't put up with the cash.
Wetlease: You hire a plane with crew from a other airline, but its used in in own airlines network. Often used when the own capacity aint enough.
I guess someone else could give you a more complete answere to this one.

Dry Lease: The airline leases an aircraft ONLY for a longer period of time than wet-leasing, perhaps for about 2-3 years. The airline uses its own crew, its own maintainance and its own insurance.
Wet Lease: The airline leases an aircraft and its crew for a few months or days, with the lessor providing crew, maintainance and insurance. An example is the Haj flights operated by Garuda Indonesia. You can see Garuda 767s, A340s, 747-300s and many others during the Haj months, all in hybrid livery.

ACMI leases usually apply to a charter for a particular aircraft. Either
for a one flight or a series of short term flights.
I have a question,
What is the difference between a wet lease and a "damp" lease?
I have seen that term a few times as well.

By the way, with the large lessors (ILFC, GECAS, etc) there is also "operating lease", "finance lease" and "managed lease"...
Operating lease = the airline leases the aircraft for a fixed time, and then returns the aircraft or extends the lease. Airline typically takes care of "ACMI".
Finance lease = the airline leases the aircraft and typically pays higher leasing charge for it, but the aircraft will belong to them at the end of the lease. Similar to hire purchase. Again, airline typically takes care of ACMI.
Managed lease = the lessor takes care of maintenance and sometimes insurance as well. In such a scenario, the airline is usually unable or unwilling to undertake these functions by itself.
