To clarify, if for some reason the company cannot get you back to your domicile before an X day, they can fly you into the X day, but give you another day off. For an * day, they have to return you to your domicile before it starts, even if they have to pull you off the rotation and DH you home.

Also, if you are on reserve, your reserve commitment ends at 12 noon the day prior to an * day. I'm sure that there is a lot I'm leaving out though.
