I believe there are multiple flightdeck crews on very long flights. Is this true? what are the average/maximum-permitted shifts? How does the on-duty clock run for these people. (Isn't the limit usually 80 hrs per month?) I'm not sure I'd want to fly with a pilot who had been sitting around in an aluminum tube for 16 hours before going to work. ----- E. N.
