Is it correct cabin crew are capped at 900 flying hours per year? And can they go over that limit in a single year or carry over any unused hours from the previous year?
Does this mean that on a average salary 'long haul' CC for example work on average 20 hours or less per week ie, potentially just one LH trip a week?
And if one is on 50% flying, does that mean they potentially just work twice a month or if they were lucky to get a LON - SYD trip then once a month?
Can crew on contracted reduced flying hours, carry out all their required flying within a few weeks back to back, and then effectively have a couple of months off flying?

Depending on the trip, you have day 4 and 5 off and maybe 6 and/or 7 top. That's a week gone already.
