So you are getting paid per hour of flight right? For instance with NW like mentioned, if this is your first year $17.46 is what I would get paid on a flight say from MSP-SMF we will say. So I would get that pay plus this perdiem play? or this purser pay? What are these different wages? Because to me it seems like someones getting paid $1.25 an hour and then you see the $17.46 an hour. Which one is it?
|Quoting F9Animal (Reply 19):|
The per diem pay is for layovers. For example, you overnight in SMF for 12 hours. You would earn $1.25 an hour for 12 hours. Some airliens pay you the $1.25 for example while on the ground.
Flight hour is usually based when the wheels go up, and the wheels touch the ground.

Aren't there a few early WN employees that are still flying and worth a couple million $ because of the stock they received? There was a newspaper article several months ago about them. The salary was not the greatest, but the overall compensation was quite valuable.
|Quoting WNCrew (Reply 27):|
Lead "A" pay $2.00/hr
Additional $5.00/flight anytime load is 123 pax or above.
Productivity $5.00/hr anything flown over 102 hrs picked up from the company.
DOUBLE-time on holidays. TIME and HALF offered every beginning and end of the month.

They get paid THP which stands for trip hour pay. Alaska and SWA are the only two I know of that do this. I'm not an expert on THP but I belive it is mileage based and a THP works out to a little under an hour. So if you were to calculate things on an hourly basis the amounts would be a little bit higher.

F9 you guys only get paid perdiem for the hours your are on a layover?
