Do you always get paid for 40 hrs a week?
you get paid for flight hours. meaning from the time the door is close until its opened.
so if you do an hour flight, youre getting an hour's worth of pay.
for every hour youre out of base, you get per-diem, ive heard of numbers from 1.50/hr to 2.25/hr. depends on the airline you work for.
also you get a min number of flight hours every month. so if youre sitting reserve and your company has a guarantee of 75 flight hours. even if you dont get called that month, youre only getting those 75hrs a whole month. with most airlines, in order to make more money, you need to work over that guarantee.
