I was curious to know if when a Flight Attendant gets her/his schdule, its usually for like a month or something I belive (refering to the U.S. airlines) so anyway on that schdule does it say the planes they are going to fly on this day and what route its going to be, where there going to spend the night ( if so) and where and at what time they need to report for duty??? thanks!

At Air Canada, If you do not get a reserve block in which case you are "on call" during certain days in that month, your sched says the type or airplane you will fly on. It won't mention the tail number as fluctuations in fleet scheduling happen on a daily basis. On a regular block the route and hotel is also pre- determined and documented. If you are going to fly domestic or trans- border on a narrow boby or a wide body, you need to report for duty an hour before, the briefing being done in the plane usually. On overseas flights, you report 1h 10 mins before the flight and the briefing is done in briefing rooms.

Just an FYI to avoid confusion, "crew scheduling" are that ones that handle the pilot and F/A scheduling. Dispatch, also known in some places as "Flight Control" are the ones that handle the the dispatch and operational control of the flight movement...

Cheers...

Who is "they" in the above sentence?


>>> Who does the briefing on the aircraft?

Usually, crews will be briefed on the condition of the aircraft via the dispatch release, and any deferred items listed therein. Crews also speak with the dispatchers about other stuff like weather and ATC, among many other things.
