US AIR EXEC PAY RAISES;
The same day US Airways reported an $87 million dollar third
quarter loss, there is a report in the Charlotte Business Journal
that some top US Air executives are getting pay raises. According
to a filing with the Security and Exchange Commission, Jeffrey
McClelland, executive vice president and chief administration
officer, will see his salary rise from $400,000 to $425,000.
Scott Kirby, executive vice president of sales and marketing,
will receive a $45,000 a year pay raise. Derek Kerr, chief financial
officer, will receive a base pay of $300,000 up from nearly $262,000
last year.

$300,000 is not alot of money for a CFO of a large company. Would you rather a $45,000 recent college grad be doing the job?

Seeing the job airline executive have been doing I absolutely would rather see a college grad student step in and do a far better job than these bozos have done. Its time for new blood. We take pay cuts so these uys get raises for losing money

Aviation, especially the airlines is the only place in the world that you get paid for failing at your job. Yes a $45,000 recent grad could do a better job.

No doubt.

This crap used to raise my BP but it has become so commonplace that anything else would surprise me.

Congrats U ALPA, you took it in the rear again after you threw your MDA fellow pilots out of the lifeboat. What a pathetic group of mercenaries. Management must be laughing out loud.

Yet most airline pilots continue to vote for Republican candidates that condone this stuff. I'm tired of listening to pilots whine about the plight of the american worker while voting for Republicans on single issue subjects like abortion. If you are so against abortions etc., don't have one. Democrats have failed us as well recently by harboring the left wing radicals but if you can ignore this wing of the party, they support labor much more than the Republicans do by far.

That's all I have to rant about. Sorry

Hate to be the one to break the bad news to you Lindbergh,but it was President Jimmy Carter, a Democrat who signed The Airline Deregulation Act of 1978 into law. When you come right down to it, NEITHER party is a friend of the average line pilot flying for an airline today.

Excuse me but I did vote Republican in the last election (obvious mistake but the democrats won in my state anyways) and I am pro-choice. Anyone that thinks a democrat or republican in office gives a $hit about them needs to wake up and smell the java. The gov't is corrupt and does not care about you or me.

That's all I have to rant about..........
