Next one I expect is ex:
Batik PK-LBG, LBH, LBI, LBJ, LBM, LBO
Thai Lion: HS-LTH-LTZ (10 or 12 still leased to JT ahead of Delta acquired)
Notes: All were manufatured between 2013 and 2016 jets and leasing will expired the date it was delivered. This is probably because JT is reducing network in Thailand while Batik is transition to all Airbus fleet in 2022 or 2023 - so I bet OD will re-delivered all 738 from ID and replace the 739.
They don't get to pick the jets -- it's the ones already owned by Castlelake.
For example, in its article covering the purchase, FG identified PK-LJT (a 2012 build) as one of the aircraft owned by CL.
