United Crew Question

Mon Aug 27, 2001 3:06 am

I was looking through the latest timetable,when I came across an intersting flight. It's UA1995 ORD-AUA (Aruba). It's operated only on day #6 (Sat) Arrives AUA at 1453,departs back to ORD at 1548. My question is;does the crew stay a week in Aruba or do they fly back as passengers? The flight is 5 hours long-aren't they only allowed to fly 8? I was just wondering.....

The AUA flight is a round trip for the crew. As the flight is a international leg with over 8hrs of duty day a 3rd pilot is used.
