  • Tuesday, 02/04/2020: 4:30 PM - 5:15 PM


  • We have seen huge growth and new investors in this ‘easy to finance’ sector: Is there too much capital?
  • Comparison of investment choices in newer vs older platforms and the reasons them: Are lessors investing in more semi-old platforms as they have better returns?
  • Is there a difference in investment between short-haul and long-haul platforms and why?
  • What is the lessors view and expectation on the service model for the next generation of engines?
  • Comparing and contrasting leasing versus owning strategies, and the main benefits and pitfalls
  • Why are there still so many problems associated with lease returns? What are some effective end of life strategies and what is needed from MROs?
