Interesting concept for setting per seat price.

A friend and I were haveing a discussion the other day about....what else the airline industry and he came up with the idea of ALPA setting a minimum per seat price. Like .60 cents per seat FO and say 1.00 per seat for Captian. Then base your contracts off of that.

The benifits we came up with, collectively forcing airlines to raise prices simultaneously. Also with the minimum set it might take the focus off chopping prices and switch it back more to customer service. Would it be possible for ALPA to set and then enforce such a requirement?

Paycut
Airline pilots should start working for tips. $1 per passenger for the FO, $2 per passenger for the Captain.

Rates would skyrocket!

I make more than a buck per seat per hour as a 30 seat Turbo prop capt. I guess that means I think this is a bad idea.

This isn't a serious suggestion, is it?
