Here’s a completely random question that’s going through my head on a Friday afternoon — does anyone understand how once weekly flights work?
Edelweiss (a Swiss subsidiary) flies once a week between Zurich and Tampa. The schedule is as follows:
So perhaps this is a stupid question, though I’ll ask anyway. The flight is only once a week, so does the crew literally stay in Tampa for a week? Do they deadhead back to Zurich? Do they somehow work both directions?
I never understood the economics of once daily domestic flights or once weekly international flights, though this specifically is one thing that boggles my mind. Anyone have any insight?
