"Our business activity from late March onwards, both in terms of new leases and aircraft sales, has improved and we are increasingly confident that this new upward trend will continue for the remainder of 2009"
"There are only six aircraft that are left to be placed and I'm very confident that these placements will happen throughout the remainder of this quarter because the discussions that are going on are no longer discussions of 'Would you kindly take the aircraft?' They are now discussions where we re-optimize the lease rentals, i.e. we're seeking among a number of opportunities those where the terms and conditions are most favorable to us. This is a very, very significant change of circumstance from what we've seen in the last few months."
"[The book value] is still approximately $1.4 billion below current market values based on data provided by external appraisers as of March 31st, 2009"
"We are optimistic on the market starting to turn."
