We work as flight attendants on a 737-400. We were taught that we must have one FA per 50 seats. Normally our planes have 150 seats and with three FAs we have no issues.
Recently the seat configuration was 152 seats. We called our company and told them that we were not legal to work like that since there were only 3 of us. They stated that 2 seats were for "crew rest" and that we were legal as long as we didn't seat passengers in those 2 particular seats. Is this correct? No one ever said anything said to us about these crew rest seats.
