FAA rules are 16 hours on duty....the ATA has always wanted that to be extendable do to unforseen circumstance. Fortunately, most union contracts have tighter limits. Hopefully, the FAA will tighten these limits even more, which is currently under consideration. Of course...the airline managements will fight against any changes.
