Leases for both the 77Fs and 748Fs are to high and SV decided to stop operating them and return them back to lessors . Already the pilots for the 747s have been relocated to 77Ws .
Although public sites have little to none about the ownership of these aircraft there are indeed leased (sorry i'm not allowed to reveal the owner) .
Talks are still ongoing for the 77Fs to reduce lease payments for more 6 months . SV stopped paying and the aircraft were grounded
Just to clarify myself i just type what some very credible people in the past told me .

Thanks for the info!

Anyways, thanks again for your reply.
