When lodging is provided more than approximately fifteen (15) minutes from the airport, Flight Attendants will have eleven (11) hours free from duty.

Additionally, a Flight Attendant will be provided eight (8) hours Place of Lodging minimum rest at the layover hotel based on your arrival time at the hotel. During irregularities or periods of lengthy delay caused by traffic or an accident on the route to the hotel from the airport, the Purser should contact Crew Scheduling to advise of the delayed arrival at the layover location to protect the eight (8) hour place of lodging minimum and, where necessary, reschedule your pick-up for the following morning.
