Allegiant made a cool 25% profit margin. (about 38 Mil) on 143 Mill net Rev. The profits are all in the ancillary revenues. It's crazy how you make only 65 bucks on each ticket, but take an extra 35 dollars per pax on the extras. It's all about the beef jerky...

P.S ( It's time to have another Wing House meeting in SFB. )

Any of that money going to the Pilots, or is it all being dumped into the whipsaw?

Of course you can make money when your crew costs are 2/3rds everyone else's. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

Still waiting on that PM with your name.. Your fellow crew members would like to know who's calling them names. I guess you're only man enough to spout off on here..

Truth hurts, doesn't it? But I guess you recognize you're only WORTH 2/3rds of what a legacy pilot makes.

But you think you hit the lottery going from Scenic to an MD-80.

That's pretty funny!

I think all the AAY pilots know their payscale is awful. I also think that they're trying to change it.

In the meantime, don't you have other worries to think about besides AAY pilot pay? I get a laugh at how caustic you are towards AAY pilots. You're angry and you like it! You are a modern day Don Quixote chasing an imaginary dragon only to have his assed kick by a windmill.

I guess the AAY pilots are directly responsible for the 60 current furloughs, the 54 planned furloughs and the 28 Captain downgrades at your airline. Gee, your super duper paradigm Alaska pay rates are really gonna help them out now aren't they...

No, but pilots who fly for non-Union companies at 2/3rds our pay rate exert downward pressure on ALL our wages. Don't believe it? Ask a UAL or USAir where their current narrowbody pay rate came from. It was the jetBlue pay rate awarded to them by the bankruptcy court judge.

Its called cause and effect.

Thanks for your enlightening remarks you have made all see the light! After some time reflecting on my career and place in this world I have come to the conclusion that I still don't give a s++t what Fubijakkr thinks or feels! Really you take way to much credit for this tired regurgitated post. It's like your a caricture of serious thought and discussion. Do you realize you are being goaded into a response for the purposes of others entertainment? Of course you probably do, so thanks for the laugh it's just what I needed on a Monday morning.

The judge chose JetBlue's pay scale after he decided their company was so unprofitable that they were going bankrupt. So that's somehow JetBlue's fault? Their pay was over $300/hr, clearly unsustainable in the post 9/11 environment. It was inevitable.
The judge could easily have chosen Southwest or Sun Country's pay scale, or even a regional airline's pay scale if he preferred. How on Earth can you blame JetBlue for anything that happened to your company? It was the decision of the judge as influenced by your own management.

When has a profitable airline ever lowered their pilot pay scales? Ever? The answer is: Never!
You should turn your anger against your largest competitors; the ones who actually hurt your bottom line and take money out of your pockets.

It makes absolutely no difference your pay scale if you're losing money. All pilots could have the exact same pay scale but if one company loses money and files bankruptcy, they WILL have their pay lowered by a judge.

There you go providing some kind of reasoned and thought out post. Fubijakker does not respond well to those. Hey did you know you only make 2/3 what you are worth? Must have been a ditch b***h.
