Price of B737NG spares

Sun Mar 01, 2020 7:36 pm

Given the delays with the B737MAX, it seems reasonable to assume that B737NG are remaining in service longer than planned.

Is there a spike in demand for B737NG spares leading to price increases.

Also is this going to mean that stored B737NG will rapidly be either RTS or parted out?.

To be honest with thousands in service I would imagine the spares market to be fairly robust with plenty of new parts still in full production for at least a decade or more and lots of certified restoration suppliers
Must think up a new one soon, slow moving brain trying to get into gear ;)

I doubt there is any issue right now. 737 production ramped up in the later half of it's production life, so a lot the planes are under 12 years old. Plenty of a market for new spares for a number of years still.

The Big Crunch right now is engines with green time. WN and their used -700 buying spree actually stoked that fire, the current grounding is not helping at all. Seems operators are really gun shy about ponying up for overhauls.

Probably the last aircraft generation where fewer than 50% of engines numerically will be under PBTH or TC packages, so have green flexibility, supply permitting.
