Thanks to both responses...Does this include a whole set of crew, meaning, a flight deck crew and cabin crew? Say, they're deadheading to a location to operate a 747-400, does that mean there will be roughly 20 of them riding as passengers? That means occupying 20 seats in an airplane right? If so, wow, that's some revenue they're sacrificing.
Philippine Airlines has a weekly A340-300 flight on the MNL
run in addition to their daily 744 run. So I guess a positioning crew will fly in the 744 as passengers to SFO
to operate the weekly A343 return flight to MNL
