RE: Current Market Lease Rates

Looking at the link LaxIntl posted I guess the figures I heard were in US Dollars and not UK Pounds. I think it is not just lease rate and fuel burn that are taken into account but also the maintenance costs aswell. For example a 737-800 can have it's 'C' check done in about 5 days for the first 5 o...

RE: IFE Certification Process?

I will write a bit more later as I am kind of short of time at the moment but just as a little note. The controller on our new IFE system which is only a broadcast system, as in just over aisle and bulkhead monitors, is 10K UK pounds. Then you have to factor in the price of at least 1000 UK pounds f...

RE: Current Market Lease Rates

I am pretty sure those figures I was told were in UK pounds and not US dollars. That 100K for a 757 is the new price we are paying for the ones that are already flying in our fleet, so I guess if you got one that needed some work from the desert then you would be paying even less than that. But as a...

RE: Current Market Lease Rates

I think a lot of it depends on how many you are going to lease aswell but I think a 737-800 is slightly more than that, I heard a figure of about 400K a month. But on the other side you can get a 757-200 for a quarter of that at only 100K a month which just proves how much people don't want to fly t...
