It depends on how the Iceland bankruptcy laws works. I'm in opinion all creditors are now having meeting with Skuli and his management to discuss how to sort out the mess. Who gets what, how and when. Good things is most of those those leased aircraft are not in Iceland, so the Iceland government can't seize them to pay off local creditors (yet).
Usually the lessor will bring in their third party ferrying crew to fly their aircraft out to usually desert or Shannon (usual transit point) for storage or preparation for next customer.
