please note that as per TK presentation, # of A332s will be reduced from 18 to 13 in 2020, so I expect lease ned of 5 A332s (perhaps ex TAM birds)
On the other hand, as per TK presentation # of A333 will be increased to 39 from 37 at the end of 2019, so I do not know how, but seems TK will lease 2 more 333s
What makes me worry is potential decline of demand for 2019, Q1 numbers were not so good
The 5 332 birds to leave TK fleet by the end of (or during) 2020 should be:
(*) the 3 ex-Jetway dry leased frames (TC-JIL/JIM/JIN),
(*) the 2 DAE Capital leased frames (TC-LNA/LNB).
But if Atlas will be getting 4 TK 332 birds, these have to come from the ex-TAM fleet of 8 frames, which are dry leased from AerCap and have undergone some cabin modifications (previously 2 of these went out to Russian Nordwind and later returned after a year's utilisation; same scenarion can be carried out for Atlas...).
Increase for 33 fleet: a mystery for me, unless there's a misprinting there at TK's table. AFAIK, one frame (the one leased from Afriqiyah, the TC-JOM) should be returned by mid 2023...). The ex-Skymark ones (7 frames) should be following later; if I'm not wrong the were leased for a period of 7 years, respectively.
