aircraft rotations and shuttles
hya !
i was just wondering how often a commercial aircraft flies in a day i was once talking to a bmi baby cabin crew and she said her a/c would fly 6 times that day! is that the norm? do they have a new set of crew for each return journey ? and does every a/c have over night maintainence?
thanks,
sam


the captain has now dimmed the lights for take off this is a routine procedure for flights during the hours of darkness!

That is hard to say.

A B747 or A340.. maybe once or twice...a B737 with WN 6 or 8.. a B737 with CAL 3 or 4.

Depends on the aircraft, the airline, the route structure, the crews schedule, the day of the week, maintainance, etc......there is really no general answer to your question.

Basically you can pretty much guaranteernthat the shorter range that the a/c has, the more trips it will runrnthat day. For example, DL had an MD-88 that would run on a daily triprnlike this:

6AM:BDL-CVG
9AM:CVG-ORD
12PM:ORD-ATL
3PM:ATL-JAX
5PM:JAX-ATL
8PM:ATL-BDL

Probablyrnthe crew would change up at CVG and ATL at some points during the triprnmost likely after the first leg, and after the third leg. Perhaps therna/c could be changed at CVG or ATL if needed for MX since the flight numbers would change. I hope that this helps.

Here's the routing for WN ship # 486 today:
FLT 2932 CMH-MDW
FLT 76 MDW-FLL
FLT 1929 FLL-TPA-BHM-SDF-BWI-MHT

It's all in how you utilize the bird. Other ones, primarily our long(er) hauls get a bit simpler:
#720's routing today was simply SEA-MDW-BWI-MDW-SEA



United 717 heavy, you're facing the wrong way. Any chance you can powerback to get off of my deice pad?
