Flight attendants to get more rest time under a new FAA rule

By

Acting Federal Aviation Administrator Billy Nolen holds up at a news conference at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport a new FAA rule calling for longer rest times for airline flight attendants between flights.

The FAA will require airlines to give flight attendants at least 10 hours of rest time in between shifts, the same as pilots, to help reduce fatigue. Current rules allow as little as 8 hours of rest.
