    This reminds me of a story........groan, I know!

    Anyway, around 10 years ago, a group of us were in a pub in England talking politics. All of us were late twenties/early thirties and not long into our chosen careers, I was on about 30k sterling in those days and I guess we all seemed like we were on the same sort of incomes.....just on the property ladder, some just leaving home, modest cars, etc....

    Anyway, the topic of tax came up and someone mentioned the newly proposed tax on people earning over 100k.....well we all laughed, "glad we're not earning that much then..!"......suddenly, everyone noticed Brett.......Brett sitting very quietly.....it suddenly dawned on us, Brett was earning over 100k!!

    Anyway, the point is, sometimes you don't know how much your friends really make...

    What surprises me is that a guy like Brett, who was earning over 100k sterling at such a young age, wasn't quick witted enough to laugh along with the group and thus not reveal his income.

    Anyway, thanks for the info.

    It seems cx pays very well. I spoke with a pilot friend of mine (not with cx) and they don't do nearly as well. Skyhook can correct me if I'm wrong, but cx might pay better than a lot of other airlines because all pilots are international pilots?? In the US, it takes pilots decades and logging tons of flight time on smaller aircraft to work your way up to the level of captain on long haul international flights....than the pilots start making really good money.

    Reminds me of a commercial airline crash near Buffalo NY several years ago. The young female pilot was trying to work her way up the ranks. At the time of the crash, she was making 28,000 USD per year. Commuter pilots in the US are woefully underpaid, and often work second jobs (scary thought).

    Cx is one of the most profitable airlines in the world so they can afford to pay their pilots high salaries.

    CX no longer pays high salaries to new hires (or even realistic housing allowances), they've recently been recruiting in India and Pakistan to try and get pilots willing to accept their reduced packages.

    They're also running a loss this year (haven't had a good year since 2010)

    Since when does company profit equate to higher employee wages? I wish
