A few months ago, United announced it was grounding its fleet of 94 Boeing 737 Classics. That was not good news for AAR, which had a contract to overhaul the aircraft at its Indianapolis heavy MRO facility. When an airline decides to get rid of a fleet of planes, it usually puts a halt to heavy checks. sometimes wtih just a few hours notice to a vendor awaiting arrival of an aircraft. No need to pay all that money to overhaul aircraft you're not going to fly again. AAR scrambled and was able to fill a lot of suddenly empty spots on its Indianapolis check line, but losing the United work had to hurt. Earlier today, AAR announced that it has been chosen by United to remarket, and provide technical advisory services on, that same fleet of aircraft. Oddly symmetrical.
