Surely these aircraft can't be life expired already??
|Quoting MEA-707 (Reply 5):|
I doubt they will get more for them then they originally paid, otherwise Boeing would feel stupid and humiliated seeing Ryanair undercutting their prices
|Quoting Pe@rson (Reply 6):|
And you reckon that matters? I don't think that 99.9% of the population would ever hear of it all anyway. Besides, WE - geeky fans - probably won't hear the actual paid-for prices.
|Quoting Cornish (Reply 3):|
Put simply, there is a view that FR got such a good deal from Boeing for its huge order for 737s, that the second hand value of the -800s on the open market is more than the price they originally paid for them. With that in mind it makes good financial sense if they can find a willing customer to sell some on.

Exactly, I doubt Boeing will lose much sleep over it either.
