The Ninth Circuit has found that flight attendants based in California are entitled to meal and rest breaks required by California law, even if they work primarily out-of-state.

The Court noted that there is enough time in a flight attendant’s shift for airlines to safely comply with the state’s required 30-minute meal breaks after every five hours worked and 10-minute rest breaks for every four hours worked.
