Last night my Captain advised crew scheduling that the local station personell could not handle our ferry flight until 8AM due to the morning kickoff revenue flights. Crew scheduling insisted my crew be at the airport at 5:30AM which put us on reduced rest. We arrived at 5:30AM to find our plane still in the hangar and the station personell busy with getting out the morning flights. So here we sit. Just like we told scheduling. We were put on reduced rest unnescisarily. This is ridiculous.
