Technical issues in the market and what their downline value and industry effects are: New aircraft deliveries, from 787 through to A320Neo and 737Max are suffering from delays and AOG events due to problems with new technology – What is this in turn doing to mid-life aircraft values and lease extension prospects and what if oil prices rise?

Will Emirates and Etihad aircraft coming onto the market have a dramatic effect?
