Yup, depends on the airlines' schedule.
With KLM most flights Nort Atlantic are operated daily and the layovers are just 24 hours.
are an exception, having 48hrs layovers due to length of the flight, rest facilities on board (or the lack of it) or the situation en route (MEX
being on high altitude, harder to adjust and rest).
But with BKK
flights it's a different story. We have 5, 7 and 9 day trips.
5 days : AMS
and then BKK
7 days : AMS
, inbetween BKK
and eventually BKK
9 days : doing BKK
twice with 1 rest day inbetween.
The interesting part is when they (temporarily) change equipment, combination of aircraft or configuration.
Did a 6 day KIX
trip last year, awesome!
This winter season, we also had 6 day trips to EWR
, 7 day trips to SFO
and last summer even 14 day trips to Kuala Lumpur!
Ofcourse, over the years airlines have starting using long haul jets, cutting fuel stops. Years ago a SIN
trip would be a 2 week trip and nowadays (for KLM) it's only 5 days back and forth.
Good luck with the jobhunt and keep us informed!
