  • Is easing inflationary pressures encouraging more aircraft trades? 
  • How have aircraft sellers responded to pressures that have been restricting secondary market? How big or small is the current bid/ask gap compared six months ago?  
  • What is the single biggest factor affecting aircraft trades today? Inflated book values, low historical lease rate factors, higher cost of funding, airline credit? 
  • Have airline restructurings seen many assets come onto the secondary trading market? 
  • Is there still a dislocation of book values and lease rates for a) new aircraft and b) used narrowbodies? 
  • What is the latest on GATS?
