Was wondering just what's happened to the unflown Robbins market as of late. A couple of years ago there seemed to be a fair amount of play, but recently I've noticed (from both personal experience and observations) it seems that you can't give them away anymore. I didn't know if it's solely due to the current state of the economy, or that supply is simply outpacing demand (or possibly a combination of the two). Curious as to if it will bounce back, or if this is a new and permanent equilibrium.

Are you referring to shuttle Robbins or medallions from all missions?

Primarily shuttle, but I've noticed it with Skylab as well.

Nothing new, and nothing is permanent unless your dead. I have flown Fliteline and Robbins medallions on AA that bidders are going as high as $500. Obviously, the bidders are not triggering the reserve. Like anything else, just standby to standby, it's going to get better. My things are going back into the closet for the time being.
