They must stay alert to the passengers’ needs, and need to be ready and fit if an emergency arises, but unlike paying passengers they will tend not to complain about cabin discomfort; it is their working environment after all. 3 A typical commercial aircraft cabin pressurisation schedule. Reproduced with permission from Moir & Seabridge (2008). The aircrew need to concentrate on flying the aircraft, staying awake through the routine procedures and long flights, unless taking a designated rest period, and they will be provided with their own personal supply of gaseous oxygen for emergencies.
