We have a new Lufthansa non-stop from FRA to PDX every day. The inbound flight from Frankfurt arrives at about 2:30 pm and departs at about 4:30 pm. Since this is the only Lufthansa flight we have, how do they work the crews with only one flight a day? Do they just fly every other day and stay in Portland for 24 hours? Any spare crew members? Might any deadhead back on the immediate return trip? Any LH crew out there?? Thanks to LH for putting "International" back in our airport's name!

Either in PDX for 2 - 3 days (16hrs minimum rest required ?) or they deadhead to another place from PDX to a place with a better "pool" of crew... but then again, I don't work in PDX nor do I work for LH
When losing situational awareness, pray Cumulus Granitus isn't nearby !
