LOU 51 – 767 Crew Seats February 2020 Block Month

(This applies to Air Canada Mainline only)

For the block month of February 2020, the following flights fall under LOU 51 and are scheduled for a B767 aircraft. They will have 2 (two) dedicated crew rest seats when operating on B767 non-crew bunk equipped aircraft:


The following flights are not scheduled to operate with a B767 aircraft for the month of February 2020 but have in the past. If there is an aircraft substitution and they are scheduled with a B767 aircraft the provisions of LOU 51 would apply:

 – AC809 CMN-YUL
 – AC829 LYS-YUL
 – AC894 YYZ-MXP
 – AC895 MXP-YYZ

What if these flights operate on A330 or B777/787 aircrafts?
LOU 51 is specific to the 767 (non-crew bunk) aircraft, and not applicable to the A330 or B777/787.  The A330 aircraft has the comfort jumpseats, and the B777/787 has crew bunks that may be used for crew rest/break purposes. 

***Please note that TAP A330 aircraft are not equipped with high comfort jumpseats and curtains.  Crew may take their rest in “last sold seats” if available as per LOU 28.  The Component has filed a grievance on this matter, CHQ-19-34 (Click HERE to view the bulletin and click HERE to view the grievance)  If you do operate on a TAP A330, and are not afforded crew rest, please send in a copy of the PIL, showing loads, date, FIN and routing so we can forward it to the Component.
