Hedging will go some way to mitigating such a risk. The production of the A320 family in the U.S. will also go some way to improving the situation. Nonetheless, Airbus may have to seek to firm up net base pricing which may result in lesser number of aircraft being sold though given the extensive backlog, deliveries for any orders placed during 2015 will not take place for a number of years. With values of newly delivered aircraft increasing by less than 3.3 percent, then the level of discounting has increased such that this is now in excess of 50 percent for virtually all aircraft types. The net value of a new A321 has increased by some three percent but the value of a new A330-200F has fallen over the last year. List prices are quoted for the A330-900neo for the first time which show a $30 million premium over the A330-300 while the net value differential is some $10 million. The value of a new A380 has increased by less than two percent between 2014 and 2015 which reflects the lack of airline orders during 2014 though 20 were secured from Doric with seven being cancelled resulting in a net orderbook for the A380 of 13. Airbus are indicating that 2015 may be a better year for airline orders and may even progress the -900 and re-engining. The values of the A350-900 reflect the lack of problems for the type having been delivered to Qatar and starting service.

Allegiant has seen a permanent decline in the B757 market. even MLA types. can exceed $4 million.50 a gallon then the 15 percent efficiency improvement is less significant when also compared to comparatively higher lease or finance payments. The maintenance issues surrounding the B757 have been increasing and the overhaul of a RB211 engine. Yet. Not only will second tier operators be interested in MLA aircraft – British Airways has just leased a 2002 A320 from AerCap that was previously operated by Wizz Air. to a more fragile carrier over a shorter term with parting out thereafter can generate enough revenue to cover the capital cost and generate a sizeable profit. This makes it possible to more efficiently operate less fuel efficient aircraft. the 50 percent reduction in the price of fuel makes it possible to contemplate retaining MLA aircraft for longer.2 million impairment as a result of an assessment of how the aircraft will fit into the fleet in the coming years. The values of the B737 Classic have been particularly exposed to the replacement process in recent years and have therefore fallen by a significant amount. If Allegiant had previously expected values in 2021 to be $7 million then the readjustment to $3 million is understandable. The market for the B757 has been deteriorating as Airbus in particular has been increasing the range and capacity of the A321 to make it more of a direct B757 replacement. The fuel component of direct operating costs of narrowbodies in particular represents a lesser proportion than for widebodies. The MLA such as A320s and B737-800s built in the late 1990s are also being more sought after given the potential for greater margins compared to new aircraft and facilitate early asset release.2 million noncash impairment charge on its six winglet equipped B757s which are used for Hawaii operations and which are approximately 21 years of age. n .5 million for an engine overhaul which powers the A321. Instead of assuming that the aircraft will be retired around 2021 Allegiant will seek to dispose of the aircraft sooner. Such value perhaps reflects the parting out value. Allegiant has arrived at the $43. n B757 Values Face Tough Times as Allegiant Halves Book Value The values of the B757 have been deteriorating in recent years as the type has lost its relevance in a changing market structure and as maintenance issues have taken their toll. However. 2015 Page 3 Mid Life Aircraft Demand Seen As Stabilizing Values The values of Mid Life Aircraft (MLA) such as the A319 and even B737 Classics may enjoy a measure of stability as the lower price of fuel makes it less of an imperative to seek replacement for 10-14 year old equipment. Seven Five Partners has just acquired 18 ex United B757s to either remarket or part out. the dramatic decline in the Ruble combined with the loss of revenue due to the decline in oil prices as well as sanctions has seen traffic and yields fall. Notwithstanding the detrimental effect of a stronger dollar and thereby relatively higher lease rentals. Saudi Arabia and OPEC only need to reduce production for oil prices to rise gain though this will stimulate the production of shale oil and the pursuit of alternative energy once more. However. with a fuel price of less than $1. This compares to $2-2. Lease extension options may be exercised in the short term rather than seek an expensive replacement.AIRCRAFT VALUE NEWS. operators would unlikely to be willing to make long term fleet decisions based on short term fluctuations on the oil price. The MLA including such types as the A340-600 may be seen as more attractive to second tier operators. A higher rental. January 26. The limited demand from this segment of the market represents a minor blow for some lessors. The fall in the price of fuel combined with rentals well below $100. Aergen of Ireland has just been formed to take advantage of the lack of appetite among mainstream lessors to acquire MLAs. In this context of disposal before 2021 the airline has determined that the residual value of its B757aircraft need to be reduced from $6 million to $3 million. A 15 percent fuel efficiency gain achieved by operating a newer aircraft will therefore result in a significant cash reduction. Allegiant Air announced in late December 2014 that it was taking a $43. The last few years has seen Russia take a number of such as the A319. at least those in good condition. excluding Life Limited Parts. Operators unable to wait three years for new equipment will acquire MLA. For example the fuel component in operating a B757 may represent some 50 percent of total operating costs when based on $3 a gallon. For a B777-200ER. Current values of 20 year old B757-200ERs approximate $6-7 million with the residual value of such aircraft in 2020 forecast to be fortunate to exceed $3 million. A 97 tonne version of the A321neo has just been launched based on a large commitment from ALC. combined with maintenance reserves. This makes it more difficult for Russian airlines to contemplate acquiring Western equipment. the fuel cost may represent 70 percent of the total operating cost.000 per month has more recently seen renewed interest in acquiring such MLA. there has been little incentive to reintroduce used freighters still languishing in the parking lot.

While load factors may seem low at just over 45 percent. The lack luster Chinese market is partly responsible for subdued appetite for large freighters but so too is the increased emphasis on on-shoring manufacturing whereby production is focused on the markets where they goods are being sold rather than seeking offshore facilities which offer the lowest labor costs.

The focus is more on dedicated freighters as passenger narrowbodies have very limited cargo capability.2% year-on-year growth carried by airlines in just two regions: Asia Pacific (55% of the growth) and the Middle East (38%). is allowing some measure of stability for lease rentals. The growth of belly hold traffic continues apace with the delivery of so many new examples. The following lease rentals reflect average lease terms to a medium credit. The demand for new and converted medium sized freighters remains limited but the -600RF is replacing earlier medium sized widebodies. Combined with the delivery of new dedicated freighters. 2015 Page 5 A330-200F 2009-15 395-830 With the fall in the price of fuel and the availability of other equipment there is lesser enthusiasm for the aircraft. The aircraft arrived just at the wrong time and as such has found the market difficult with the contraction of orders all too evident. For those that spent $20m+ on conversion a decade ago – or even more recent – the returns have been dismal.AIRCRAFT VALUE NEWS. as there is nothing to replace it then demand will remain in place with lease rentals also consistent. the payload and volume of the aircraft is still significant. B747-8F 2011-15 1600-1900 The lease rentals of the -8F are under pressure as the fuel efficiency of the type loses its significance. The small package operators are playing a major role which in time will see the opposite effect. Lease rentals are holding steady though there has to be some realism regarding the length of lease terms. Lease rentals are stable which is expected to continue into the short term. However. The lease rentals have long been at levels that make the type suited to low utilization operations or as back up aircraft for when the primary aircraft is unserviceable. January 26. B727-100CH 1965-71 20-35 The aircraft can be bought for small change but maintenance and operating takes rather deeper pockets. The lease rentals for the older aircraft still have the capability to fall further. Boeing is probably having to offer incentives to secure orders. B757SF 1986-93 90-120 1994-98 105-150 1981-92 90-120 B767-300F 1995-99 2000-07 170-285 240-380 B777-200F 2009-15 695-1550 B767-200SF The conversion of the B757 continues and demand remains strong. Winglets can be economic on both types as long as utilization is sufficiently high. The rates represent a sizeable premium over the passenger version that goes beyond the cost of conversion. The rise of the Middle Eastern carriers has an impact on the need for large dedicated freighters. . Rates are becoming more realistic. B727-200FADV 1972-78 20-45 1979-83 20-45 1972-78 25-40 1979-83 40-50 B737-300SF/QC 1986-91 1992-97 70-90 85-120 B737-400SF 1988-97 80-130 B747-100SF 1969-76 N/A B747-200SF 1971-78 65-90 1979-84 70-100 B727-200FHA A great aircraft still in terms of the ability to perform a variety of services to a range of operators. Still a good aircraft in the freighter role and very much in demand with conversions taking place as long as the right feedstock can be obtained. The later aircraft will be more desirable for conversion given the lower number of hours and cycles. Rates higher than those quoted are possible. The -400SF is more desirable given the grater capacity. The leasing of the aircraft still takes place given that it is an inexpensive alternative to the B757 and other younger freighters. B747-400F 1993-98 1999-09 140-170 285-585 While the market for the -400F may be improving once more due to the lower price of fuel there has been some deterioration at the upper end of the indicated ranges. B727-100C 1965-71 15-30 With so many scrapped and in storage there is no upside for lease rentals. More examples need to be placed back into service before rates rise. There is no place for the -100F in todays market. Rates have to be realistic to achieve placement. However. The lease rentals are largely whatever a lessee is willing to pay. There are only some 26 -100s and -100CHs left in service with airlines. The -200SF is a specialist aircraft suited to a limited number of routes and operations. Rates have declined slightly. Rates at the upper end of the scale are considered to have eased down slightly as convergence takes place between the newer and older. There must be an expectation that more -300ERs will be converted in the coming years but the question is whether there will be demand from beyond the small package operators. The aircraft has been in service for some years and the time is drawing close when conversion of passenger B777s will take place. not that the B757F is that young given that production ended more than a decade ago. Identifying B757 candidates that offer a long term future as a freighter has become more difficult. The hushkits were previously a necessity but have been of little relevance for many years. The B777F still very much a desirable aircraft even if there are relatively few carriers with the density of traffic to make it pay. The lower price of fuel may on the surface indicate renewed interest but there are more capable –400Fs laying idle. The power by the hour arrangements are perhaps more relevant for the aircraft that was first converted some 40 years ago.

While Boeing has made considerable improvements to the basic design. The passenger capacity is much increased compared to its predecessor – the B737-400. Boeing paid close attention to improving serviceability on virtually all areas of the B737NG. rather than a more advanced product when compared to the A320 family. In todays environment. The payload/range capability of the compromised B737-400 was inadequate on a number of routes. The current value of a new B737-800 with a reasonably high specification is around $47 million.

Many future value projections will have already compensated for the introduction of a re-engined aircraft. Production rates of the B747-8 have fallen to virtually uneconomic levels. Just click on “Daily News Archive. New stories are posted daily. it is more incremental than evolutionary. under the categories of Avionics.com. January 26. the re-engining can be more likened to the change from the CF6-80A powered B767 to one powered by the CF6-80C2B1F.4 million but values have long failed to exceed $200 million. The total backlog is therefore 36 units allowing production to continue through to June next year based on 2014 production rates. In the context of re-engining from both manufacturers. The problem in seeking customers for the B747-8/-8F lay in the more efficient A380 and B777-300ER and now the fall in the price of fuel. Rotorcraft. While re-engining offers improvement. the effect on residual values of the A320 and B737 could be relatively modest in terms of deviation from existing projections. Of the 19 deliveries in 2014 ten were for the passenger variant. The airfreight market remains fragile and while Cargolux has recently reported a significant improvement. n B747-8F Values Continue to Decline As Fuel Prices Tumble Even the potential order for three more B747-8Fs from Silk Way Airlines cannot disguise the difficulties facing the B747-8. n Aircraft Asset Assessment B737-800 Market Presence. there have been 51 orders for the B747-8 of which 27 have been delivered leaving a backlog 24. it remains possible that the stimulation of the economy will lead to a shortage of high volume capacity in the coming years and combined with higher fuel prices. Instead values have approximated $180 million but investors may feel more comfortable with $165 million and even then requiring a 75 percent loan to value debt level. don’t worry. then the values of both variants may be further impacted. there is ever likelihood that production rates will fall further. and Regional Airlines. it appears that increasing the MTOW of the –800 at a later date will represent a paper rather than structural change. the fall in the price of fuel makes the use of expensive B747-8Fs less economic. Previous popularity should not be automatically extrapolated for the future. residual values of new -8Fs have to be realistic such that by 2022 uninflated values of a 2015 aircraft may be less than $100 million representing a 40 percent fall in only seven years. A higher price of fuel will accelerate this replacement process thereby causing values of existing products to fall that much faster. the values of these products will likely remain stable in the short term due to limited availability. n Go Online for Breaking Aviation News In addition to reading the in-depth analyses featured in each issue of Aircraft Value News. Once the A320neo and B737MAX enter service. Orders for the B747-8F now total 68 of which 56 have been delivered leaving a backlog of 12. so too are -800s. Suppliers of components for the B747-8 cannot be expected to be offering discounted prices unless offset against orders for other Boeing equipment. The expected future decline in values of existing products needs to be seen in the context of prevailing forecasts. However.Page 8 AIRCRAFT VALUE NEWS. representing less than two per month. Market Outlook. With the prospect of B777-300ER conversions taking place early in the next decade. Whereas the move from the B737-200 to the B737-300 represented a significant change. Aircraft being delivered will likely be used just as much as replacement as growth capacity and will therefore displace existing equipment. Previous popularity should not be automatically extrapolated for the future. If you forget to visit the web site for a day or two. The launch of the B737MAX represents a significant improvement in performance and just as values of the early A320s are facing weakness. you can now access the latest aviation news from this newsletter’s sister publications. then there would be less incentive to order both the existing A320 and the A320neo so close together in terms of delivery dates. In 2014 only 19 were delivered.aviationtoday. the pressure to do so may be less muted than if an all new aircraft was under development. so too are -800s. Maintenance. While Boeing will still have to discount the B737-800 to maintain production through to the service entry of the B737MAX. The launch of the B737MAX represents a significant improvement in performance and just as values of the early A320s are facing weakness. The list price of the B747-8F in 2014 may have been $368. 2015 a significant difference in terms of payload range capability. that the -8F will be in short supply allowing values to recover just as they did for the B747-400F in 2006-2007. The B747400Fs that remain idle or under-utilized make better freighters when the price of fuel is so low. In the event B747-8 production deteriorates further or the line is mothballed.
