Airlines scrap clunkers sooner as oil prices bite
Jets are heading off to their final resting place at a rate similar to cars as airlines scrap aircraft at earlier stages, according to new research by consultants PricewaterhouseCoopers. Aircraft are being "parted out" - scrapped and sent to the jet cemetery - after just seven to eight years, compared to traditional lifespans of 20-25 years, as airlines look for newer, more fuel-efficient models.
