That would be correct. Pac Blue employers were receiving an hourly rate while away, so technically they are still working - although there are no drinking rules while not on the plane.

Exactly my thinking. If they are on a layover and more than ten hours away from flying as a crew, then it's not on duty. If they are waiting for a plane to be fixed for takeoff *and* working on that plane then it's on call duty. Anything else, bugger off, it's their lives.

Federal Aviation rules state that (among other things) no pilot may fly with a blood alcohol level of 0.04% or higher.

It seems sensible to me that no person responsible for any aspect of passenger safety on a plane should be subject to any less stringent level. After all, in a crash the pilots may be killed and the cabin crew entirely responsible for the aircraft evacuation etc

Dratsab:
Psilan: Attendants and Pilots banging each other on trips, cheating on partners. It was crazy.

I both know and have known [platonically in all cases] a number trolley-dollies and have heard of this kind of thing many times over many years. I was quietly wondering when it might get brought up here...


 

A friend of mine is a pilot on British Airways. He says that when he attends crew parties he introduces himself to people as "Hi, I am Jamie and I am straight, by the way!"
