What is the interpretation or normal business hours for this cost principle application?

FAR 31.205-46(:rolleyes: "Airfare costs in excess of the lowest priced airfare available to the contractor during normal business hours are unallowable except when such accommodations require circuitous routing, require travel during unreasonable hours, excessively prolong travel, result in increased cost that would offset transportation savings, are not reasonably adequate for the physical or medical needs of the traveler, or are not reasonably available to meet mission requirements. However, in order for airfare costs in excess of the above standard airfare to be allowable, the applicable condition(s) set forth above must be documented and justified."

"Normal business hours" is not defined in the FAR to my knowledge. I think each contractor defines it (which is what Retreadfed said). At one employer, "core hours" were 9 to 4 because of flexible work schedules. I think most of us would agree that normal business hours would not start before 7 AM nor would extend past 6 PM.
