Dear Brighton Rocks, reading your scheduling agreement it is clearly stated that only duties that exceed 13 hours duty time achieve two days off, all the rest achieve only one or even as little as 15 hours. Do crew always get generally 2 days off after all longhauls? You could, according t scheme for example do a ORD with one day off, but would you get generally 2?

As BabyJack has posted above, the African trips, you can work the following day due to the similar time change, just as with charter, you could do an Orlando the day after a Banjul there and back (which I have done many times). Its not ideal, and perhaps not ethical, but i'm afraid it is legal.
All other rostered long haul's trigger 2 days off 99% of the time, but it is possible to only get 1 day off if called from standby - even though its rare.

Thanks for your clarification! I have an interview coming up for CSM. Do you know which kind of questions they would be asking and how is the day structured?

Hello guys,

Before I post a question, I wanted to thank the contributors, perhaps on behalf on so many of us: no other airline on this website has this much support for their new starters. Amazing!

I have one silly question, don't shoot me for it. :) I got it from somewhere that there is mid- and long-haul classification of flights: when would a flight become mid-haul, and when is it long-haul?.. This muct be related to the length of flight. Is there a max number of hours when the flight shorthaul? Would all short-hauls be there-and-backs, or that would also have something to do with time zones? Say - Kiev, St.Peterburgh are also classified as shorthaul; or, would they be mid-haul? What is the legal requirement to rest for crew after a mid-haul flight, if there is such a classification? I already learnt that for long-hauls the rest time is 24 hrs.

Thankx!

Best to think of it as per Brighton Rocks thread. All the European destinations are classified as short haul work and you can do there and backs, 2 day, 3 day tours. The only consideration is that you must have 1 day off in 7 and 2 consecutive days in 14.

All other work is long haul work. Trips to Africa do not require days off after them but you could BID for days off and BID for African trips before them. All trips to the states now require 2 days off after them but this can on occasion be reduced to 1 day off

You must learn the BID inside out and back to front and make it work for you. You have 9 days each month off and you can BID to have them where you wish but have greater success if you avoid weekends
