While there are well intentioned or vested interest attempts to talk up the state of the market, widebody values in general continue to falter such that the last six months is likely to have seen another ten percent fall. Some regions continue to report reasonable growth but this is either insufficient to counter wider problems or the result of drastically reduced yields. IATA has cited lower utilization of the B777 fleet for example, highlighting lesser use of the type. The weak point of the year is fast approaching and the combination of high fuel prices and depressed yields will inevitably force consolidation or corporate collapse such that more aircraft rather than less aircraft will enter the market. Sustaining delivery rates of new aircraft will continue to act as replacement rather than growth capacity. Only by next year will the rescheduling take real effect.
