They would be getting pretty high cycles now too, so the lease company would most likely want them back while they still have some value in them.
The A321neos on order will be owned. The only leased A321neos are the already delivered ZK-NNA, ZK-NNC and ZK-NNE leased from ALC. There will be two leased A320neos, ZK-NHA and ZK-NHD, also leased from ALC. The four leased domestic A320ceos, ZK-OAB & ZK-OJQ (leased from ALC) and ZK-OJR & ZK-OJS (leased from BOC) will have options to extend the leases.
