Pricing is more affected by engine condition, aircraft age, flight hours and flight cycles than by heritage. Aircraft records can also be a significant factor on pricing. I have never heard of someone paying a premium based on heritage.

Cycles is the single biggest item, because when it times out, it is done... At least in the US! (Ref Aloha 243 as to why Cycles are important)

AS the LOV on B767 is 75,000 cycles and 150,000 Hours, that is not usually a factor. It is true however that as the aircraft gets older, more maintenance is needed and required.

Pardon me, it is actually 50,000 cycles per FAR 121.1115 Limit of validity.

Some A/C have waivers to go beyond the FAA published limits.

All Boeing aircraft can go beyond the published limit, IF someone wants to pay for the increased maintenance requirements. Usually this is not economically feasible. One thing I have learned in 45 years of aircraft maintenance and operations, never say never and never say always.

It is called "The Aging Aircraft" program and the inspections required are based on Hours and Cycles... One in the program the inspections are more involved and increase in frequency depending on the age and cycles. Many will take them beyond the start of the program, but gets less and less profitable to do so as hours and cycles build.
