Re: AA - LATAM reapply for ATI JV

Yes wonder what AA-LATAM do now.

I have to admit the Chilean court decision is impressive albeit too rare. Way too many nations have allowed airline JVs to grow like wild weeds at the expense of competition and consumers.

Re: Aircraft Values, And Lease Pricing - Spring 2019

Interesting to observe how freighter variants can now carry higher valuation than their passenger counterparts.

Gone are the days when cargo operators received the leftover scrap frames, and now instead can operate shiny new expensive frames at premium valuations.
