Does anyone know where I can find pay scales from 2000? Just would be nice to see what we will never see again.

Hopefully you were just kidding. Yeah they were great and it will be a while but this is exactly the kind of thinking that will hurt us in 2012.

Referring to 2000 pay scale:

Hopefully you were just kidding. Yeah they were great and it will be a while but this is exactly the kind of thinking that will hurt us in 2012.

Are you serious you are afraid of getting paid? Are CEO and 400 plus management jobs getting paid more than they did in 2000? Have bonuses been paid for losing money since 2000?

Pay Me! Any pilot who argues they are not worth $400 per hour as a widebody captain and $250 for a narrow body just as SWA is paid is on crack.

Has health insurance gone down in price? Has gasoline gone down in price since 2000? Has housing in desirable places to live gone down in price since 2000 even though it is off the bubble pricing of 2006? Everything cost more than 2000 costs!

Yes transcon airline tickets still cost $200 a ticket just as they did in 1985 but that is management stupid fault. Not the pilots.

Inflation is a hidden government controlled tax which always increases. If you don't get it I am not explaining it morons.

And there is no such thing as deflation in fiat currency system. It is a temporary phases prior to hyperinflation, double digit.

Either I worded my post wrong or you quoted the wrong person. I was saying that Delta pilots thinking we can't get back the 2000 pay scales is what will hurt us in 2012.

Here is some info that was used for research into the work that Allegiant needs to do. At the time not one Delta captain made under $200 per hour. I remember something about delta express that flew 737-200's at a lower rate in the late 90's but I have no idea how exactly that worked. I think they also got very quick upgrades. These are a sample of the old delta rates from 2000:

MD80CA 737NGFO
11 $235 $174
10 $232 $172
9 $229 $170
8 $227 $168
7 $225 $164
6 $223 $160
5 $221 $156
4 $219 $152
3 $217 $149
2 $215 $127
1 $213 $56

Guarantee was 65 hours. 12 year 777 CA rate was $320


As for NWA, the 3rd year DC-9 CA rate was $178, 3rd year FO DC-9 rate was $107.

But the NWA guarantee was higher correct? 75 hours

People totally forget the minimum guarantees! Southwest not only has the highest 737 pay rates, but also a 79 hour guarantee for reserve (78 for lineholders)!
Just as important as pay rates in negotiations!!!

I have said it before and will say it again


It IS NOT hourly rate we need to look at.
We need real facts. W2 at the end of the year, vs Time away from Home.
WTF......

That is correct. It however IS the pilot faults COMPLETELY for voting in concessionary contracts.

Is it stunning that in 2002-03 these guys really believed that taking a 40% paycut would really save the company when the price of oil was less than $30 a barrell back then.

You guys only have yourselves to blame for taking the concessions. It's not right, but its the truth.

I'm one of those morons. Can you please post a link explaining this gvt tax or can you explain it using small word (pictures would be even better)?

Contract 2000+ COLA needs to be our opener.

No cease of payrate increase each year either- that crap is rediculous. The payrates should continue to get COLA bumps each year regardless of the amendable date.

Those payrates are unsustainable in todays competitive market. Be realistic in your demands.

They had that too back then.
Rates and Rigs.

I agree though that folks get hung up on rates and don't look at the big picture.

A lot

It takes 3 Southwest crews (on 3 seperate 737s)to carry the same amount of people and cargo as a 777 crew, yet the 777 Captain makes less than the SWA Captain. So, if the SWA Captain makes $210 an hour----3 of them equals $630 an hour. So, if our 777 carries twice the cargo and makes twice the revenue, there is no way he can make $300 an hour, which again is half of what it takes Southwest to carry the same amount of people and cargo? Unsustainable to ask for half of the $630 an hour? You are wrong. Now, we use 757s and 767s on routes that are common with SWA routes (like SEA to SLC, and LAX to SLC), and those planes are twice the size (757 vs 737) of the SWA planes, meaning 2 SWA planes equals a 757 or 767---cargo and pax compared to a 737, meaning $420 an hour for 2 SWA Captains vs one of ours making $170 an hour. Again, you are wrong.

It would be easy if it worked that way Gen, only problem is that it doesn't.
