I have a better idea. Why don't you beef up the pilot contract and get off your a***s?

It's great for the UAL pilots who have been working for Wal Mart wages for the past five years but, for the CAL pilots it would be a very small increase and, in some cases, a cut in hourly rates.

6 figures is hardly chicken feed.

Yes, the "WalMart" reference was not literal. However UA's six figures is $40,000 less per year than the CO's six figures for flying a 767. It is proportionally less for the 737-800 vs. the Airbus A320. The only planes that pay the same at both companies are the 777 and 747 which are lumped into one bucket.

Let's shut this P.O.S. down, quit your pilot lobs, and close the doors like Eastern Airlines did in 1989.
