AMC-14 is owned by SES Americom and was to be leased to Dish, so the financial loss is theirs. Even if they successfully boost it into the proper orbit, it will deplete most of the fuel and give it a much shorter life span. I would imagine SES Americom needs to get the full life for it to be profitable. My guess it will be scrapped so they can collect the insurance.
I sure hope things go better for Nimiq 4!
