2 of 15 General Remarks Sequentially these problems follow the aircraft assignment problem Difficult problems because there are substantial constraints associated with a crew schedule Hours of operation (< 8 flight hours per day, < 14 hours in a duty cycle, ,< 30 hours per week, < 90 hours per month, and < 1,000 hours per year) Vacation/rest days (selected by the pilot/crew member) Exogenous parameters Very important since crew members represent a sizeable amount of the DOC cost of the airline (senior captains make $240,000 per year at makor U.S. airlines)
