Xiamen. Actually there is a lot of factoring on the 777. If you have not been flying any ULR (no factoring to date) you will be rostered for ULR's since the bunk time does not count towards the regulatory 900 hours. You will be rostered for freighter trips which involve lots of DHing and do not count towards the 900 hours.

In those case you get paid for the hours but they will take you significantly above 900 hours. When we add in training etc you will find that you get 30 days of leave, spread out over the year (the other 12 day no one seems to be getting).

So you will work 11 months and fly/be at work well over 1000 hours a year.

To accomplish that you will have to 'work' 95 hours+ a month in the months you work.
