i can only quess.

in terms of absolut figures, it must be some Japanese carrier. I do know that ANA (NH) pays very high salariesl to the pilots. But afterall you have to consider the living standard to get a true picture. Japan is a very expensive country.

Emirates and Qatar Airways do pay FA's quite well, but it's a sort of package which includes housing and other travel benefits. But is is necessary to attract mainly asians europeans (british) and arabs (mainly lebanese) to go and work their far from their countries. Also the FA's at EK have a to perform much more working hours than their european counterparts.

Swissair has some of the highest salaries. They pay you everything. You dont have to pay for medical things and not for food. I think the yearly salary is 300'000 Dollars for a captain.The reason is the same of ANA and JAL. Switzerland and Japan have one of the highest living costs. Did you know that singapore airlines has one of the lowest salaries worldwide. The best attendants get payed the least.

Thanks

Hi Avion,
yes you are right, SQ doesn't pay so much but this is great because after all airlines are there to make profits and SQ is one of the most profitable airlines if you consider the ratio of Profits/turnover.

They also have very tough rules about Cabin FA's. If they get three complaint letters from Passengers, then they are fired! it is very tough but i think it is also a reason why they have such friendly and attentive FA's
