Quote from our lot about AIG.

All aircraft contain quiet enjoyment clauses which mean that so long as we continue to perform our obligations (including those relating to payments) we should be able to continue to operate the aircraft without interference.

In practice even if a Lessor gets into difficulty and their assets are subject to a claim, eg by a bank under a mortgage, all interested parties will want the aircraft to continue operating as normal. The worse the market conditions the more important this is.
