In recent days Flight Attendants have been inquiring as to how to determine their maximin duty day. For clarification purposes, reference our JCBA, section 6.S.1 which states the following:

S. Domestic Maximum Duty Time

A Flight Attendants shall not be scheduled to be on duty in excess of the following limitations.

For Duty Period Starting

Scheduled

Actual

0500-1859

13:00

15:00

1900-0459*

11:30

13:00

High Value Trip**

14:00

16:00

The above duty time provisions are based on the Flight Attendants home Domicile time.

*Limited to no more than seven (7) hours flight time, ground times not greater than two hours, thirty minutes (2:30) and no more than one flight segment after a red-eye flight.  A red-eye flight is one with any portion scheduled to operate from 0200-0400, local time.

**A High Value Trip (HVT) shall be limited to a single duty period containing no more than three (3) flight segments with a total flight time of nine hour (9) or more.

The above duty time provisions are based on the Flight Attendant’s home domicile.  

Regardless of the time zone in which we begin our domestic duty day, our scheduled and actual duty time limitations are based on our home domicile time.

For example: You are based in SFO and are on a 2 day pairing laying over in MCO. The Day 2 duty period commences at 0730 EST. Your Home Domicile Time is 0430 PT in SFO.  Because you are starting you day at 0430 PT, your maximum scheduled duty day cannot exceed 11:30 scheduled duty hours and may not exceed an actual basis13:00 duty hours in the operation as this is a duty period that starts within the 1900-0459 (HDT) duty period range.
