Personally, I imagine fuel can be loaded much faster that it will be
expended although I am open to the converse viewpoint.
You might also consider some kind of maintainence burden. Rules for
this could be jigged to make things faster on a dedicated carrier:
say it takes 6 work-points to turn around a fighter group. The group's
own bay contributes 2 points per turn and 1 point is contributed by
each empty fighter bay per turn. If a carrier can stagger the return
of its fighter groups, then the empty bays contribute to the full bays
and acheive a swifter turn around. If you have only one fighter bay on
the ship it takes the full three turns (or whatever is adjudged a fair
time: re-jig the numbers to suit).
