(c) Round-trip services defined. For purposes of this section, round-trip seryices mean short-notice MAC charter service where (1) passengers and/or cargo are transported on two or more successive revenue fights and the last revenue flight terminates within 250 statute miles of the point of origin of the first revenue flight or, by mutual consent of MAC and the carrier, at a point within 250 statute miles of the carrier's principal operating base; (2) the scheduling permits departure within 4 hours after arrival at each point to be served except at one point where the aircraft may be scheduled for departure within 72 hours after arrival; Provided, That, on flights serving more than one U.S. departure point, by mutual consent, MAC and the carrier may agree on not more than three points where the aircraft may be scheduled for departure within 72 hours after arrival; and (3) the air carrier operates en route not more than one ferry flight not exceeding 50 statute miles without compensation and not more than one
ferry flight not exceeding 1,500 statute miles for compensation equal to not less than 75 percent of the round-trip cargo rate specified in paragraphs (a) and (b) of this section where only cargo is carried on the other portions of the whole trip and for compensation equal to not less than 75 percent of the round-trip all-passenger rate specified in paragraphs (a) and (b) of this section in all cases where passengers are carried on any other part of the whole trip.
(d) Computation of passenger-miles and cargo ton-miles (1) General rule. For the purpose of this section, the computation of passenger-miles and cargo ton-miles shall be based on no lesser mileage than the nonstop airport-toairport distance, in terms of statute miles from the point of origin of the revenue fight to the point of destination of such flight, via such intermediate points as are required to be served by the terms of the MAC contract.
(2) Transpacific services. In the case of transpacific services between the 48 contiguous States and points beyond Alaska or Hawaii, the general rule shall not apply but the mileage shall be computed as prescribed in Schedule A incorporated in this paragraph, as follows:
9. Via Wake. 2. Via Anchorage.
10. Via Wake-Guam. 3. Via Tachikawa.
11. Via Guam. 4. Via Anchorage-Tachikawa.

14. Via Honolulu-Wake-Guam. 7. Via Honolulu-Wake.
15. Via Tachikawa-Clark. 8. Via Honolulu-Wake-Clark. NOTE: Alternative routings 7, 8, and 14 are to be used for calculation of the mileage if MAC requires that an intermediate point along the mid-Pacific route be served. 1 Any place in the State of California, Oregon, or Washington. For services to and from Japan, compute mileage to and from Tachikawa Air Base.

The Board reserves the case of transatlantic services, when the right to rescind this part or any provinonstop airport-to-airport distance be sion thereof at any time, with or without tween origin and destination of the flight notice or hearing, as the public interest is 4,000 miles or more and no inter may require. mediate points are specified by the terms (b) The transportation services perof the MAC contract, the mileage shall formed pursuant to the authorization be no less than as computed via Shannon, granted in this part do not constitute an Ireland, or via Lajes/Santa Maria, activity of a continuing nature within Azores, whichever routing yields a lower the meaning of section 9(b) of the Admileage.

AUTHORITY: The provisions of this Part 291 issued under secs. 204, 416, 72 Stat. 743, 771; 49 U.S.C. 1324, 1386.
NOTE: The following interpretation of Part 291 was adopted by ER-136, 13 F.R. 7769, Dec, 16, 1948.
Examples of irregular air transportation within the meaning of Part 291. For the guidance of irregular air carriers and other interested parties the Board here sets forth a number of illustrative examples of ir. regular and regular service. All irregular air carriers should study these examples, for the Board expects to use them as standards to apply to the operations of such carriers.
It should be noted that all of the illustrations included here refer only to actual operations. Such operations indicate a course of conduct constituting the holding out of regular or irregular service, as the case may be. The holding out of regular service may also be brought about by means other than actual operations-for example, although its services are operated irregularly, a carrier may be holding out regular service by reason of the nature and extent of its advertising and trafic solicitation efforts. In other words, an irregular air carrier is not im. mune from enforcement action if its actual operations are irregular but all the circumstances surrounding its business show that the carrier is holding out regular service.
The illustrations included represent application of the principles announced in Page Airways, Inc., Investigation, 6 CAB 1061, Trans-Marine Airways, Inc., Investigation of Activities, 6 CAB 1071, and Investigation of Nonscheduled Services, 6 CAB 1049, and more particularly of the cease and desist order entered in the matter of the Noncertifcated Operations of Trans Caribbean Ait Cargo Lines, Inc., Order Serial No. E-370, adopted March 14, 1947. This is emphasized because the Board is not attempting by revision of Part 291 either to enlarge or contract the scope of operations permitted by the regulation.
(1) An irregular air carrier operates between points A and B, in one direction, on the days of the month which appear in brackets on the following calendar table:
S м T W T F S (1) 2 3 4 5 6 7 18] 9 10 11 12 13 14 (15) 16 17 18 19 20 21 (22) 23 24 25 26 27 28
1291 30 31 Since these flights are conducted on the same day of each week, the service is not irregular within the meaning of Part 291. Moreover, if over a period of weeks an occasional Sunday flight is omitted, or is operated on some other day of the week, such minor variations in the general pattern of
regularity would not cause the service to become an irregular service.

Moreover, if over a period of weeks an occasional flight is omitted, or is operated on some other day of the week, such minor variations in the general pattern of regularity would not cause the service to become an irregular service.

Such service is not irregular within the meaning of Part 291.
(4) An irregular air carrier operates between points A and B in one direction, on the days of the two successive months which appear in brackets on the following calendar table:
