"Balpa claimed the new rules, which MEPs could now vote on again in October, would allow pilots to:
land an aircraft after being awake for 22 hours
fly on the longest-haul flights with only two crew rather than the three at present
work up to seven early starts in a row rather than the current three allowed
It now goes back to committee again.
