If you want to get really general about it, subsidiary pilots, who fly smaller aircraft, usually get paid a bit less. In fact, that's what the hoopla at Comair has been about.

Depend on the company, British Airways it is all seniority, therefore what you fly is not important, but with UA it is size and seniority.

They are based on experience and on Aircraft type.

I understood it is based on hours plus experience. So if ypu've been with the company for years you'll earn more flying long distance that shorter routes.

Thats what I gather anyway, regarding Air Canada.

At LH it´s seniority. They used to pay an extra depending on the type of a/c but that was abolished in the 90s.
I once met a very senior 737 pilot who said he didn´t want to fly the 747 because that would mean being away from home a week or so.

Here in SAS,pay is based solely on seniority.One of the reasons is that the larger planes usually fly the intercontinental routes.Many pilots,especially when they get older,may have problems with jetlag and we don't want them to be "forced" to stay on these routes because of financial reasons.A captain with top seniority will make the same amount whether he flies a 737 or A340.
