This isn't exactly voluntary, and the judge will look at airlines who have lowered the bar to see what industry averages are.

Way to kick a guy while he's down.

The crappy thing is, 15% from a management salary probably cuts into discretionary spending. 15% from a pilot, flight attendant, or mechanics salary, means being able to pay a mortage, pay for groceries, or buy clothing for your family.

So how to take the 17.3 million worth of CUTS and still be able to shout from your very proud soapbox about how COMAIR has never "Lowered the Bar"


Oh... and before you yell, "Source please"

Just remember, your pilot group is a very big part of the reason that we can no longer "raise the bar." The future pay rates will be forced on us due to the bankruptcy filing. Unlike the fact that your pilot group VOTED to not help maintain the bar. Not exactly something to be proud of.

Remember, that 17.3 million that will be taken away from us is only to "match" your pay rates to make us "competitive" in the DCI system.

blame game

I wonder how long it will be before N2246j, fins or his pal surplus1 blame this on the evil mainline pilot group?!

In all seriousness. If I were a cmr pilot I'd be screaming mad at the proposed cuts by mismanagement.
