aircraft rotations and shuttles
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?
the captain has now dimmed the lights for take off this is a routine procedure for flights during the hours of darkness!
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.
