Poll: How many of the ~15,000 aircraft currently parked do you think will be parted out over the next two years?

With the global recovery in air traffic demand expected to last 2-5 years, airlines that survive will emerge from the novel coronavirus pandemic as smaller businesses operating more efficient fleets. Airlines have had to park or store most of their aircraft. Not only have operators had to move fast, without the long-term planning usually associated with such actions, but they also have had to cope with the volatility of the situation.

While many parked aircraft will return, a significant percentage—particularly older airframes—are not likely to see scheduled passenger service again.
