I understand for the foreseeable future the 145s/140s are sticking around, but it canít be much much longer, can it?

Iím seeing 31,000+ cycles on most of the aircraft logs. Lots of aircraft retire around 35,000 cycles in the industry, is it different for regional aircraft? Whatís the dealo with that?

With my rough numbers, if you were to do 1,400 cycles per year per airplane, that leaves about 3 years left on most of these aircraft...

They were originally refinanced under bankruptcy until 2024. Iím told that they have, or most have, been paid down early.
