International Lease Finance's $1.3 billion debt offering has seen strong demand. The deal, secured by some of the American International Group unit's aircraft leases and assets, will close this month. ILFC is paying 6.75% to 7% on the loan. "It is not surprising that the company is seeing healthy demand for the new loan, given that it is to be secured by assets and will carry an attractive interest rate," said Kathleen Shanley, a senior analyst at Gimme Credit.
