Modesh yes,CC sign on 1.5 hours prior in DXB compared to pilots 1hr!

Harry-- I agree the CC rest requirements are guidelines and the CAPTAIN can make them fit. Using discretion on the return to DXB I will always have the cc take the same amount of time as discretion for rest or increase their rest, should they have any, by the amount of discretion. This ensures they are fit throughout the flight and for the landing.

That is OUR choice as a captain! We all know the pilots will be using controlled rest so expecting cc to simply work through it, especially considering they are flying 120-130 hours a month, is shameful not to mention dangerous. So you mitigate that by adjusting their rest.
