I think there will be a ripple effect of delayed payments. If the lease holders were to collect on unpaid bills during a time like this they would manager to do nothing besides reposes planes and put airlines out of business. Then there would be nobody to lease their planes and they'd go out of business. It would be mutual mass murder in the industry.
