All this hype of saying that giving a crew a 30 minute break to comply with IR law is going to push the company over the edge is a bit much. If they can't give a crew 30 mins clear of the tin can when they were going to have a 20 min turnaround anyway it's a bit poor - they have more than one aircraft and more than one crew - they could easily slip another crew onto the inbound a/c that is not due for a break yet, or a crew that has just completed a break, and then the inbound crew takes something else out after their 30 mins at the table. It's not difficult. The managers who talk this nonsense enjoy their extended lunchbreaks usually while formulating this type of policy.
