N830WE (26913, L/N558, ex ZK-NCI) and N730WE (26912, L/N509, ex ZK-NCG) appear to be still at ASP.
Unclear what's going to happen to 830WE and 730WE. Given that none of the 3 had sold for over a year, it didn't surprise me that 30 West would unload one of them at the discounted price that would make it suitable for freighter use. They could do that to pay down debt, pay interest, etc., while still hoping to sell or lease the other two for more money.
The 30 West web site now shows the two other aircraft as "Under Contract". So either they're both also going to ATSG, or 30 West found another buyer. They're a good age, have Pegasus, well-maintained, etc., so they're probably quite satisfactory for a buyer who has lower-utilization passenger service for them. But given ATSG's continued appetite for good aircraft to convert and the paucity of available AA frames until 2019 when retirements resume, ATSG is an obvious potential buyer.
