  1. Good idea to get extra cash. They don't need the plane plus thwy get the CRJ700 back to Ljubljana which was at Lodz (base being closed)

  2. I wonder what aircraft it is replacing. Is it that LX wants to phase out the Avros faster than they get delivery of CSeries? Or do they have a lack of crew as pilots are being retrained on CSeries?

  3. LX has continuous wet-in suppliers e.g Edelweiss, Helvetic, ... so nothing unexpected to lease JP to cover the peaks.
