I did a supernumary with a guy (who taught me to fly back when at SEN) back in 1989 from STN-DUS-STN in G-ZAPA, as said above, a C404.

I'd imagine that there is a crew change in WDH, so one crew does WDH-HLE-WDH as a 2 sector duty day. Would that then allow them to do WDH-HLE-ASI-HLE-WDH as a four sector day?
