About the proportion that are grounded

From the report "That 22 per cent represents only the average number of aircraft grounded by a lack of spares, so the total proportion of the fleet that can't fly at any given time is almost certainly higher."

I'm pretty sure that by definition there is only a fifty-fifty chance the actual proportion that can't fly is higher than 22%.
