Dec. 9, 2015: The aircraft appraisal firm IBA, headquarter in the UK, issued a recap of the Airline Economics one day conference about the Boeing 777 market that focused on values and marketability of the aircraft. These have been topics of international discussion ever since Boeing launched the 777X (and, really, for some time before) and Boeing faced the challenge of bridging the production gap between the 777 Classic and the 777X.
Rather than recap the reams of data here, LNC is providing downloads to two documents IBA prepared to recap the one-day event. Boeing did not participate. The first document, IAB used widebody-factsheet, is a two page piece that lists top operators of 777s, the number of aircraft coming off lease in the next several years and valuations. The Airbus A330 and Boeing 747 values and selected data is also included.
The second document, 777 Seminar Dec 2015, is seven pages and provides a detailed recap of the Airline Economics 777 Investors day. IBA facilitated the meeting, which was Dec. 2 in London. Airline Economics previously held a similar event about the Airbus A340, another troubled aircraft in the secondary market.
