ATA 738s Going Back To Lessors?

Thu Jan 06, 2005 3:05 am

I read somewhere that N303TZ and N306TZ are have gone and are going back to those to whom the lease belongs.

Can anyone confirm this and tell me what is next? Are they all now going over there?

Some of them are...

The subject is getting attention over on Yahoo!'s ATAHQ stock board at:
http://messages.yahoo.com/bbs?action=t&type=r&board=7080754&sid=7080754

If you'll scroll back throught the last few day's worth of messages you'll see other aircraft numbers mentioned, as well as some of the 757s... It's a good source of info as to what's happening with ATA...

Interesting, these are older 738's in their fleet, figured they would take the newer ones out, first.

That's a decision of the owners .. not ATA ...
303 went to GYR yesterday .. 306/307 will go to VCV today and tomorrow ..

IIRC, their oldest one is only 3 or 4 years old, and it's more a matter of who the lessor is... In one of the previous messages on the Yahoo! board, someone mentioned the lessor involved that was taking them back...

All their leased 738's are from the same two companies, ILFC and WFBN. However, I beleive it was Boeing Capital that arranged the leasing deals, so maybe they have choosen the planes?
