I was looking through my photos from a trip to England in March and remembered that there were only two pilots on the LGW-YYZ segment. I thought for a trans-Atlantic flight there would be a third flight crew member.
Could anyone enlighten me to the regulations that dictate flight crew levels? Also, could you post individual airline levels for different flights (transatlantic, transpacific.....etc)?
Thanks for the help.
If you don't stand behind our troops, feel free to stand in front of them.

I have done many, many Atlantic crossings from the US East coast to Europe (and vice-versa) with only 2 pilots under US FAR 121. FlyHossD gave a very good general explanation of the rules under US FAR 121. The bulk of these routes will be between the US Northeast and the UK in practicality.
