It depends on the block time. I believe the specific thresholds are in the CBA, but I think you need an FB on flights 8-12 hours and an FC only on flights over 12 hours. The 767 isn't a 12-hour plane for most airlines.
What is an FC?
It's the shorthand for the fourth pilot. I don't know what it stands for, unfortunately.
