How many legs do flight attendants normally work in a day? This meaning domestic. Are they contracted to work up to a certain # of hours?

I know my really close friend works for AE and she can do sometimes 4 legs on a day. But remember, it is for AE so she is going out of ORD to smaller cities around in other states.

Don't Tread On Me!

Depends if you're working a Transcon (JFK/BOS/IAD-SFO/LAX/SAN, etc...), you may do 1-2 legs a day, or a Midcon (BOS/JFK/IAD-ORD/DFW, etc...), 3-4 legs, or really short 30-50 minute flights, 5-6 legs. I know that AA's domestic non-long range(Long-Range= Over 12 hours but not more than 14:30 hours) must have a scheduled duty aloft time (time in the air) less than 12 hours, but all flights more than 8 hours need appropriate crew rest. For more information on becoming a flight attendant, I reccomend going to www.flightattendants.org .

Hi, I'll try to help. I worked as a Flight Attendant before going to school (I was 19 and it was for a charter) and it was based on our contract. I think if we hit 14 hour days we had to have an extra flight attendant on board and we each got to sit out a leg. This was on a 727 and we would do legs like DFW-LAS-TUL-LAS-DFW. It depends on the airline and the contract. However I know the FAA won't let flight attendants work seven days in a row. It has been a very long time but I hope that helps you some.
