Crew Rest in the U.S. has been one of the most popular issues discussed in this forum. In this thread I would like everybody to contribute what they know about this issue so that in the future anybody with questions on this topic can be directed to this thread. First, I would like to get a list of the FAA crew rest guidelines or a brief summary. Then we could compare how crew rest guidelines differ between airlines and the facilities used for crew rest on different airplanes within the airlines (744 cabins, first class seats in 76's). We can also discuss popular issues such as Delta's 764's problems with Crew Rest and United's 763's on Hawaii routes. The issues that exist between older tri-jets being replaced with twins. Questions are also welcome. Here's a list of some airlines and their planes whose crew rest I would like to learn about:
DL: 767-300ER, 777-200ER, MD-11
UA: 767-300ER, 777-200ER, 747-400
NW: DC-10-30/40, 747-400, 747-200
CO: 767-200ER, 767-400ER, 777-200ER
US: A330-300, 767-200ER
AA: 767-300ER, 767-200ER, 777-200ER
To start off DL on their 767-300ER use a business first seat for crew rest on flights over 8 hours.
It's not limited to U.S. airlines if people want to contribute stuff on non-U.S. airlines.
I'm especially curious about what US Airways uses for crew rest on their 333's and 762's?
Thanks for contributions!
