Fleet strategy shake-up

 

Since the advent of the Covid-19 crisis airlines around the world have seen a significant shake-up of their fleet strategy. Several older aircraft are being prematurely retired to cut costs. Virgin Atlantic for instance immediately withdrew its entire fleet of 747-400s leaving the airline with a less fuel-guzzling twin-engine fleet post-crisis.

For avionics, the challenge is more on the test side, where the component OEMs control the market through limited distribution of test equipment and software upgrades to third parties.
