Crew Layover On Routes With Tag-ons

I'm curious to the common policies for crew layovers on routes with tag-on destinations.
For instance, on UA's LAX-SYD-MEL, does the crew initially lay over in SYD, then do a SYD-MEL-SYD turn as a duty day followed by another SYD layover, then fly SYD-LAX?
( I believe that at one time they did LAX-SYD-MEL, SFO-SYD-BNE, LAX-AKL-MEL, so they must have had a complex crew schedule for these routes)

I can think of some other examples as well - N America/Europe -GRU-EZE, JNB-DKR- N America, etc.

Yes, that is exactly how it works.

DL does the same for it's add-on in Africa.

Yes, you've got the right idea. That is exactly how it is on that route.

Other examples would be North America to GRU or EZE, with a daytrip to Rio or Montevideo respectively, as an out and back, then back to GRU or EZE for a layover, and then back to North America the next night. If the stay is long enough, such as Rio and Montevideo for AA's schedule, the crew goes to a hotel for the afternoon (5-6 hours). Still on duty, but not sitting at the airport for that time period either.

at bmi, a shuttle trip (as we call them) such as LHR-AMM-ADD-AMM-LHR is normally a 4 day trip.

Day 1 operate LHR-AMM depart at lunch time, arrive early evening
Day 2/3 operate AMM-ADD-AMM (the shuttle) depart early evening, arrive early in the morning
Day 4 operate AMM-LHR depart early in the morning, arrive at lunch time.

Alternatively we do a multi stop trip ie LHR-GYD-TBS-GYD-LHR

Day 1 operate LHR-GYD-TBS depart lunchtime, arrive late at night
Day 2 (and possibly 3 and even 4!!) in Tbilisi
Da3 (or 4 or 5) operate TBS-GYD-LHR depart very early morning, arrive lunchtime.

How about longer routes like SQ SIN-NRT-LAX, SIN-HKG-SFO, SNI-ICN-HKG, SIN-IAH-DME, SIN-FRA-JFK just to name a few?

Does the crew fly SIN-NRT (layover), NRT-LAX (layover), LAX-NRT (layover) and finally NRT-SIN?



One way I will fly around the world!
