Re: Aircraft Values, And Lease Pricing - Summer 2020

Probably a stupid question, but i'm genuinely curious, how has Delta retiring the last large fleet of MD80s affected the value of the MD80 in the short term? I'd imagine with the large influx of airworthy aircraft into the parts market, the price would temporarily increase until maintenance provider...
