My guess is that this is a reference to shut-down/startup restrictions related to the shaft bowiing problem.
This may well be the case as the turn around time for a short 'shuttle' flight may be a lot less than for the expected routine flights of the 787; 45 - 60 minutes compared to 90 to 180 minutes.
