Jetstar International: 2 Or 3 Flightdeck Crew

Sat May 12, 2007 9:42 am

I was wondering if Jetstar International fly with 3 crew on their longest legs. Considering HNL-MEL could be a 12 hour flight I hope that they don't cut costs like operating with 2 crew on that length sector. I am sure there are airlines around the world that do operate those length flights with 2, but the crew must be worn out at the end. I know I am, but I don't have to land the thing. Anyone know the number?
G'day

I think the law is something like 2 crew for <8 hours and after that it needs to go to 3 crew.

From memory CX operated BNE with 2 crew but SYD with 3 for example.
