It has been rumoured for some time they are in financial trouble even with the purchase by FI.2 A321 and 2 A330 returned.Whats next.Not another one gone bust.
Actually 2 A320ceo (their last two - TF-BRO and TF-SIS) and the two A333s (they still have TF-GAY on lease from ICBC in service). The question might now be around which leases FI might want...the lessors are:
Air Lease Corporation (1 A20N, 4 A321, 2 A21N)
Sky Holding Company (2 A321)
Bank of Communication - Shanghai (2 A321s)
Government of Russia - Vnesheconombank (3 A321s - originally part of an order for Russia's airlines)
Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (the remaining A333)
2 of the 3 A321s owned by the Russian government are not wingleted; all others are.
I would expect that FI would reject the A20N and A333 leases at the very least, but integrate the A321/A21Ns into the fleet after reconfiguration to FI standards, and use them where the range of other aircraft isn't needed, alongside the 737 MAX 9. As for the 757s, I could see some heading to Cabo Verde alongside 2 A321s...an operation that could use 3 B752s and 2 A321s to start. I'd be surprised if FI keeps the WOW air brand.
