Once that clause is gone, the planes get reconfigured. And conditions are very favourable for a renegotiation of that clause. Hence my conjecture that the major reconfiguration would be done in such a way that a subsequent reconfiguration would merely be a quick hangar visit rather than a major reconfiguration and re-wiring event.
But both the ACPA and the Jazz CPA have both been redone within the last year. There is no suggestion that I'm aware of for either contract to be revisited at this point.
