Are the plans funded by other debt such as loans from banks etc instead of leasing contracts?
|Quoting Sevenheavy (Reply 8):|
The entire VS fleet is in fact leased. As stated above this is from a variety of sources. I do not have the exact information to hand but ILFC provide a large proportion of the B744 fleet, specifically the earlier models (G-VFAB, G-VHOT, G-VBIG, G-VAST, G-VTOP).
|Quoting Eha (Reply 9):|
VS owns 4 of its 744. GECAS and ILFS owns respectively 5 and 4.
They also own most of their A346s, except 4 leased to ILFC, one owned by Babcock and Brown company.
As for the A343, they own one, leases 3 to ILFC, 4 are owned by Airbus Financial Services.
