Number of cycles is a more important factor in terms of fatigue failure of fuselage due to pressurisation. Flight hours are not really that significant. An aircraft that is used for regular short haul flights will reach this flight cycle limit at much lower flight hours than those on regular long haul flights.

It's strange to think of the Triple 7 as an aging aircraft. I feel like BA and UA took delivery of their first ones just yesterday.

It's weird, I've never ridden on one of the darn things, and they're reaching retirement!

@John.... 777 is a nice ride... especially in 1st class.

Aging aircraft?
A B-52 is an "Aging Aircraft". Original crews have been replaced by their grandkids.

I know the difference between cycles and hours, but 45,000 cycles has got to mean a lot of hours! UA got theirs 21 years ago. How many cycles were they designed for?

I feel as if this a "new" plane; I've never flow on one. I still remember the American Airlines one-class non-pressurized DC-3 in 1947, and landing on grass at New Haven. Boston Logan we stopped on bare ice; I almost fell down; long walk to the terminal.
