Cool! What are typical turn times between flights? I'm sure it's much longer than the 30-40 minutes I have these days. I remember spending lots of time sitting in Row 1 with my feet up on the wall eating my crew meal while the cleaners and caterers did their thing. Now the agents open the door and ask, "Last off, first on?" Thanks.

Eastern used one of the first ever computer bid systems called ACM and PCM (attendant crew management and pilot crew management) using a VIPS (Voice Information Processing System) which was a dial in system. The sheets were either the product of this system or used by the employee to bid I would guess. Please scan them so we can see!!
The shortest was 8 hours with the majority lasting around 20 to 23 hours.
There were a few that lasted 32 hours! (All in PVD though- kind of strange)
Most of the warm destinations such as SRQ, MIA, and SJU had the longer layovers.
What was a long duty day?
I am not sure exactly what you mean by this, but the longest day I see (Starting from Departure of the first flight and ending with the landing of the final flight of the day) was 12 hours, but most lasted between 7 and 9 hours.
