The useful life of an aircraft frame and components is impacted by flight hours and possibly more importantly by the number of cycles (a cycle being one take off and one landing) as these stress many components.

An aircraft designed for LH or ULH will not really be viable for SH/MH operations and might only be pressed into service on a temporary basis as needed.
