So this means,if an airline leased a new aircraft from f.e Aercap,with old interiors,the airline can't just change the interior,the way the airline likes?the airline must wait years, to do new refurbishments with the leased aircraft,because the lessor (Aercap) will be in bargaining position.? omg i ...Jump to post
"If an airline leases a new aircraft on a 12 year lease, end of lease (EOL) negotiations will usually start in Y10 if the leasee has plans to do anything other than return the aircraft at the end of the 12th year. The EOL balloon payment, usually includes the leasee making a payment to the leas...Jump to post
Isn't PAL Express basically just a crewing subsidiary for PAL itself those days, focusing on mainly domestic with limited international? It looks like a similar arrangement to QF's Jetconnect for some NZ services. Quote according to wiki. As of March 2014, PAL Express began carrying the brand name ...Jump to post
Again,i asked that question about the 7 A330s.about 'leasing-agreements' that might come with 'attachments' by the leasing company to refurbish the remaining 7 A330s.but noone could ever answer it. I don't know how many of the A330s belongs to Pal express,because they don't name their planes 'Pal ex...Jump to post
International flights @ subic?
So much about the talks,'warnings' from airlines, opening too many airports in manila...now with subic bay.this will come with a hefty security issue.i hope they are wise enough, to close it down again,once a major airport is built.
If an airline leases the B777x,not purchase,are they able to retrofit their cabins after 5-10years without attachments from the lessor?emirates did that to their b777, but i think they are purchased.is it for airlines more attractive to purchase a new aircraft,than to retrofit them after 10years?or ...Jump to post
Are the 7 A330s of pal leased?2 A330s are pal express planes?

They'll have so much space,if they'll finalize their 6 other A350s options.no more guessing,where their A350s will evtl fly.i hope they'll take that chance and announce it by next year,that they will order more A350s.
Dubai could then finally be served by the A350-900s by maybe 2021/2022.

I completely felt in love with the A359.that i think they will not opt for the A350-1000 in a year.pal is better with the smaller and more efficient A350-9s for seattle and paris I still believe they will strech the leasing agreement with the B777 and will refurbish them.a surprise,maybe with a new ...Jump to post
