He sounds unprofessional. I understand some days are frustrating, especially with long delays due to airline scheduling & weather but man up!

Nice, coming from two guys who have never had a 16hr day in the Northeast. That guy sounds great compared to me after a long day.

The wonders of Screw Scheduling.. I mean Crew Scheduling. 16 hours duty time - the industry milks the &#^$ out of their crews.

It is legal because the FAA makes it legal. The sad thing is the 16 hours is show time to off time. Add in the time before show time and the time on the way to the hotel and you are looking at almost a 18 hour day for the flight crews.

I'm not the 121 expert, but do know the 135 regs inside and out. Technically max crew duty is 14 hours, but there are various exceptions (unscheduled weather and ATC delays, etc) that allow 14 hours to be exceeded. Maximum flight time varies by scheduled/un-scheduled operations and how many pilots make up the flight crew. At one point a few years ago, there was talk about decreasing max crew duty due to the findings of various safety studies, but nothing has ever happened really. It's my belief that fatigue is one of the worst physiological human factors in aviation. Often, it's deadly.

I guess that's my cue to chime in.

Yes, unfortunately, we can legally (by the FARs) go up to 16 hours of duty in one day.  And we can legally (by the FARs) fly 6 days in a row without a day off.  But it is much more complex than that.

But, in most cases, the 121 carrier's crew rulesare more restrictive than the FARs, just to prevent breaking the FARs.  At my company, we cannot go more than 15:30 in a day.

The rest requirements are where it gets fairly complex.  They are all hinged around how many hours you fly in a constantly moving 24 hour period.  As a 121 pilot, you are required to get at least 9, 10, or 11 hours of rest (rest being defined as not on duty), but that can be reduced to either 8 or 9 hours, depending on how much you fly in the rolling 24 hours.  But if you do not get the required rest and are on the reduced rest, the next day you must receive a longer rest period (10, 11, or 12 hours) within 24 hours of beginning the rest period the day before, all within the 24 hour rolling day.

Yes, that last paragraph is confusing and complex.  Unfortunately, flying in the 121 world, there's more to know than just how to fly and how the plane works.
