Is the aircraft possibly used for a private company charter in the meantime?
Yes, it's the whole day at DRS
and even on the most weekends we have the Cirrus Dornier here all the time. We wondered about this but maybe it's the same crew so it's cheaper to put them into hotel and fly the plane back in the evening instead of having a second crew here. Today the evening flight was listed as delayed already at midday.

And would the crew get paid for the waiting time between flights?
Don't think so as crews are paid in block hours normally (the time from start to stop of a flight).

I was just told by a friend of mine that he saw the 328 land at around 1 pm at DRS yesterday! And this was not a scheduled flight as it wasn't listed on the arrivals board. I guess it does operate occasional charters during the day
Really, I can't find it on the arrivals/departures but wasn't on the airport too. Back in summer 2004 they had lot of problems with the planes and there were mechanics around the Dornier every day all the time and nearly every second flight was delayed....
By the way I like the shape of the white Dorniers here at DRS
and in the last few months we go t to see the Jets more and more often.
