(This applies to AC Mainline only)
In our December 2020 bulletin, we informed the membership of any augmented LOU flying for the month and the designated Article/LOU for long range pairings. This bulletin will clarify a few rules applicable to B14, LOU18, LOU22A/B pairings, and will provide the membership with an updated long range flying chart.
- Once bidding is closed, the Company cannot for any reason change the designated Article/LOU
- All the conditions (such as onboard rest, duty day limitations, crew complement, layover rest period etc.) of the designated Article/LOU apply to the entire pairing**
- There are two possible onboard rest periods for LOU18 and LOU22A/B flights. The duty day for each flight will determine the onboard rest period
** For greater clarity regarding onboard rest: if a pairing has been designated as LOU22B (for example YVR- DEL-YVR) the negotiated onboard rest periods for LOU22B shall apply to both the outbound and the return flights.
In 2018 the Component Crew Rest Committee issued a long range flying chart. An updated chart (inclusive of the additional 30 minutes as per Article L60.04.06) is available to the membership. Please click HERE for a PDF version of the chart.
