Could someone please provide some information on the following question:
Assume that a pilot is schedule to fly from MIA to JFK and back on day. MIA flight is scheduled to leave at 8:00 AM and arrive at 10:30AM. Return leg is schedule to depart JFK at 12 noon and arrive at 2:30 PM.
Assume that weather or mechanical problems delay the departure of the return leg until 2PM so the flight arrives at 4:30PM. (Would the reason for the delay matter?)
I assume that the pilots need to show up at the operations center about an hour to an hour and a half before their first flight and spend some time at operations after their flight.
Let's use a pay rate of $100/hr for the pilot.
How would the pilot's pay for the day be calculated? Do they earn their $100/hr from 6:30AM to 4:30PM?
