Of the QF fleet only 33 had the number of cycles warranting checks.

The above 4 were selected based on movements up to yesterday (not cycles).

ie: Aircraft already in maintenance as well as those which hadn't flown for several days (maybe grounded)

A report in The Age newspaper claims that Lion Air have found cracks in younger aircraft. (Sorry I cant share the article)

The article by Patrick Hatch and Karuni Rompies states 2 Lion Air aircraft with fewer than the mandated minimum of 22600 flight cycles have been found to have cracks,, but also states it is in the -900 variant, whereas QF and VA operate -700 and -800 variants.
