Since there was not easy access to replacement aircraft, the cycle count was raised by regulators (doubled IIRC). It was a multi year process and required among other things at least one aircraft to be destructively tested for metal wear and fatigue. Then an upgrade/rework/inspection needed carried out on the other planes.
These were bulit like tanks. Hence the incredible growth, from what, 34 seats to 72?
