Having done aircraft repair on light aircraft, I think that CFRP is going to prove to be much more durable and easier to repair than aluminum. One of the difficult aspects of aluminum structures is that aluminum bends, and an impact in one area can cause distortions far from where the impact occurred, which is often impossible to completely correct; one example was a 172 that had suffered a very hard landing years earlier and showed no external scars, but the floor stringers to which the main landing gear was attached were noticeably distorted. Complete repair would have been prohibitively expensive. CFRP, on the other hand, will ultimately break but not permanently bend. This actually makes assessing and repairing damage easier, as long as it can be thoroughly inspected (which the FAA will require in any case.) I believe once the mechanics get accustomed to CFRP they will never want to see another aluminum airliner. I have also done a fair amount of fiberglass work, and while it can be messy it is not difficult and with care repairs can be made that are as strong as the original and virtually undetectable.
