I was wondering if there are airlines that have their crew hang out on the aircraft between an aircraft's arrival and departure times, when it is not done within a short amount of time, and it is all within the rules that govern crew duty hours?
Say we have a flight from point A to B, which is only 1 hour long. Flight leaves A at 2200, arrives at 2300. Then the return does not leave B until 0400, arriving at point A at 0500. Total run is 7 hours, including ground stop at point B.
Can you please list the airlines/flight numbers? It would be interesting to know...
