Standardisation of widebodies will make lessors more willing to take aircraft: Citigroup Asia MD

Citigroup Asia MD Anup Mysoor, speaking at CAPA's Financing the Asian Aviation Revolution conference, stated (07-Sep-2012) lessors will be willing to increase the number of widebody aircraft they lease if there is greater standardisation amongst configuration and features. Widebody aircraft have greater cabin configurations and engine options, which makes placement difficult as airlines try to achieve commonality across their fleet. Airbus and Boeing are moving towards standardisation, with Boeing on the 787 limiting the number of suppliers that can supply line-fit furnishings.
