Provided, That, for the purpose of this paragraph (b), compensation equal to the minimum rate applied to the load that actually can be accommodated shall be considered economic whenever a carrier is prevented from accommodating a load equal to the minimum specified above, for reasons other than adverse weather, off-loading by MAC, or the bulk of the cargo supplied by MAC, but in no event less than 90 percent of the above minimum loads. For purposes of this proviso, failure by the carrier to accommodate more than 12 loaded pallets on the B-707-320B/C and DC-8F aircraft, or 10 loaded pallets on the CL-44 aircraft, irrespective of the total weight thereof, on the all-cargo segment of any convertible charter flight, due to the presence of galley equipment and/or
crew facilities on the main deck of the aircraft for use on that convertible charter flight, is deemed to be due to the bulk of the cargo supplied by MAC.
(c) Round-trip services defined. For purposes of this section, round-trip services mean short-notice MAC charter service where (1) passengers and/or cargo are transported on two or more successive revenue flights 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 flight 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:
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.
(3) Transatlantic services. In the case of transatlantic services, when the nonstop airport-to-airport distance between origin and destination of the flight is 4,000 miles or more and no intermediate points are specified by the terms of the MAC contract, the mileage shall be no less than as computed via Shannon, Ireland, or via Lajes/Santa Maria, Azores, whichever routing yields a lower mileage.
(e) On-loading and off-loading of traffic. It shall not be deemed a violation of the provisions of this section for an air carrier operating a charter flight to permit MAC to on-load and/or offload traffic (passenger or cargo) at any operational stops en route made for the carrier's convenience, to the extent that it does not interfere with the carrier's scheduled ground operation: Provided, That the carrier receives minimum compensation consistent with the provisions of this section for resulting load carried on any flight stage which is in excess of the load paid for under the contract.
