I doubt a first year DAL
FO could clear that much unless he was flying a very large plane right off.
If memory serves me right, a 737-200, first year FO makes 54.00 an hour. If he flew the 1000 hours max the FAA allows, that is about 54k a year. But I doubt he would get that 1000, probably be more like 72 hours a month...or app 47K. Factor in other stuff, per diem ect, I am sure it is a little higher, but not 80K.
