We read about the $2.56 billion in annual labor cuts that United's unions and the large cuts that AA employees are taking as well. I'm curious to know what this works out to be in dollar terms for an average employee?

It sounds like a lot, yes, but for the United Flight Attendants, it means a cut in their hourly wages this year from anywhere between $2 to $5 depending on domestic vs international, as well as "A" vs "B" pay scale.

As of last year, a domestic flight attendant brand new to the company would make $1359 per month, or $20.91/hr. Under the new contract, the same flight attendant would be making $1237 per month, or $19.03/hr.

As of last year, an international flight attendant with 14 or more years with the company would make $3177 per month, or $48.87/hr. Under the new contract, the same flight attendant would be making $2891 per month, or $44.47 per hour.

When you look at it like that, it's really not too much to give up in order to save the airline. As many have put it whilst sipping on drinks in far-away places such as Singapore or Hong Kong, "being a flight attendant isn't a job...it's a lifestyle." Very aptly put.

We at UAL didn't give up as much as AA ramp, 15.5%-23%(AA)
we made more per hour and gave up less(13%)

but we aren't the bigger airline, things will snap back somewhat.
