| ||(2) ||The Domicile Manager, after discussion with the LEC President, may authorize up to thirty (30) minutes of crew rest on flights where the scheduled non-stop or multi-segment flight time is seven (7) hours or more and operates between 2200 and 0600. This authorization may be altered based on the needs of the service. |
|b. || |
The Company shall provide two (2) sets of three (3) contiguous seats on jumbo equipment and one (1) row of three (3) contiguous seats on narrowbodied equipment which the Flight Attendants may use for such rest. Such crew rest seats shall be located in either the first or last row of any zone, unless otherwise agreed between the Company and the Union. Such rest seats shall be curtained from passenger view.
|c. ||Notwithstanding the above: |
| ||(1) ||The Company and Union will meet and confer if the Company needs to make any changes to the bunks/bunk facilities or crew rest seats which would adversely affect Flight Attendant use. No changes will be made without first giving the Union the opportunity to make recommendations. |

| ||(3) ||On DC-10 and B-767 equipment, such crew rest seats shall be the last four (4) contiguous seats in the rear of any zone or cabin or two (2) sets of two (2) contiguous seats in the front or rear of any cabin.

| ||(7) ||On new or reconfigured equipment, the inclusion of a crew bunk facility is preferable to a crew rest seat if bunks can be provided without further reducing the availability of revenue passenger seating. |
| ||(8) ||Bunks will be equipped with curtains, emergency oxygen system, reading lights, air outlets and individual seat belts. |
| ||(9) ||Crew rest facilities as defined in this Section are for the sole and exclusive use of Flight Attendants assigned to the flight or personnel covered by Section 4.S. |
