simple question which i have wondered when flying to and from europe, yet i haven't been able to find the answer too through various searches.
how long will flight crew layover in a particular city? for example take a continental crew on EWR-LHR trips, EWR-ATH trips, EWR-HNL trips. or an AA DFW-NRT / HNL trip?
would a crew flying EWR-LHR depart EWR in the evening to arrive at LHR in the morning, rest the remainder of the day and head back to EWR the next morning/afternoon? or is there another full day of rest involved? do they typically have time to see the local sights/enjoy themselves in the evening ect?
i know this is one of those questions with many variables to consider, but i am just interested in a basic hub - destination round trip.
feel free to post real life examples as well
