10 Hours Rest is the Law


Date: October 13, 2018

Reported by United AFA-CWA, MEC

On October 5, 2018, the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 became law. The Secretary of the Department of Transportation now has 30 days to change the federal rest rules for Flight Attendants. The new rest rule is: 10 hours free from duty and it cannot be reduced for any reason. The FAA will provide the airlines with an implementation period for the new rest rules, which typically is no more than six months. We will update Flight Attendants as the implementation process moves forward.
