It is terrible. Might be good for some 3 year fo's to get an upgrade, but I don't see any current captains going. Of course, it would be a cool adventure, but no one currently in the left seat will be going for the money.

There is also a $900/mo. housing allowance and $6,000/yr travel allowance to factor in. Also, health care is not charged to you. This bumps up the package a bit.

What is the shortest period one can sign up for? This might be cool to do for six months or so.

Interesting:

"Air Mekong plans to incorporate a rotational, balanced pairing and crew scheduling system, to include reserve assignments.
There will be no seniority based roster."

Should be interesting to see how many ASA current Captains go for it.

Also interested to see if Skywest gets the same offer.

Ill give you that. International Health Insurance can run you about 10,000 to 12,000 a year according to the guys on pprune.

I worked at least one overseas contract before... You really have to compare apple and oranges before you consider one

Correct me if I am wrong, but as an FO and getting only $4000 to travel back in forth will get used up extremely fast. I wanted to see jumpseat agreements with this but there are none.
