9:38 pm
countries where there is still very healthy demand. europe.t asia, western the drop in fuel is a massive tax cut to the consumer on a global basis. for the airlines, the depreciation on average of currencies around the world is far less than the drop in fuel. the drop in fuel has been a huge boost to airlines around the world and it has far outweighed the drop in the currencies. in china, there is an awful lot of news about a 1% or 2% movement in the currency. fuel over the last 18 months or so has gone from well north of $100 a barrel to $30 today. the lower price of fuel is making airlines a much healthier commercial enterprise and it is
9:39 pm
also generating additional traffic. there are routes that were not profitable for airlines to fly at $100 a barrel which are extremely profitable to fly at less than $50 a barrel. shery: exactly. how does that affect the leasing industry when it comes to less fuel-efficient aircraft? aircraft, ader boost we did not think we would get. ,he gas guzzler type airplanes assumed all of these airplanes would be scrapped. what is happening is that airlines are saying, we think fuel is going to be lower for another 18, 24, maybe 36 months.

9:41 pm
-- to part with the companies. consolidation is -- maybe there will be a little bit of it. i do not see too much of it happening. you have aercap and general electric and then there are a bunch of smaller guys. maybe there will be some consolidation amongst the smaller guys. shery: that includes you? no plans whatsoever for aercap? robustre generating very levels of profitability. the correct allocation of capital is always at the forefront of our minds. we can reinvest back into the business by buying airplanes or we can do that from manufacturers or airlines or
