Lets take a theoretical airline with about 40 737-200s and not much money to work with. In the year 2000, such aircraft will not longer be able to fly, right ? So the airline, which relies heavily on such planes will either need to buy new ones or hushkit them, right ? Considering purchasing/delivery delays for new planes, and considering frequency that planes are sent to the shop, how long before the deadline would such an airline have to make a decision on its fleet ? In other words, should the airline decide to hush kit its 737s, how long would the process take ? Is this done during a D check, or would a 737 be take off-line for a few days to be hushkitted without other checks ?
