Question on Jetblue's JFK-ORH-JFK Flight

Fri Dec 07, 2018 3:25 am

Hello,

I have a quick question about JetBlue's JFK-ORH-JFK flight. The JFK-ORH flight (676) arrives in the 11pm hour, and the ORH-JFK return (671) departs the next day before 6:00 a.m. I would imagine that the same crew isn't used due to the overnight turnaround. My question is, where do the crews for both flights come from, and from what crew base?

Thank you!

Soxfan :)

It could be a Continuous Duty Overnight, or a "stand up" overnight. The crew's first duty flight is the 10:00p.m. flight, arrives after 11:00p.m., technically on duty until they take the first flight of the day and get back within their alloted duty time limits.

JetBlue has multiple flights a day. I suspect the crew go to rest and then start their day the next day on an afternoon flight to Florida.

For example the crew does XXX-JFK-Worcester (overnights)-FLL-XXX

BOS based crews. The JFK-ORH crews overnight and take the next day’s flight to MCO, and the MCO-ORH crew overnights and takes the next day’s flight to JFK.
