That's a good payout, but at the same time, it comes at the cost of a reduced labor force and contracting many jobs, which means less employees overall to spread the money around to.

An average payout of $1,042 per employee isn't bad at all. I'm glad to hear that Northwest's financial performance is improving.

But that's what it costs.... a company has to right size to its business.

The "old" crew, as in the ones that don't still work there? They don't still work there.

My point is this: the contractors don't get the bonus, which means that the same money is split between fewer employees. This is a slap in the face for those who were layed off or replaced entirely.

Would it be better if they didn't give out any money then?

Well my check was 51.00 of course I was on furlough till Oct of last year. The only people I know that got more than 600.00 is the pilot and maybe some folks in building A. Building A's bonuses will be MUCH larger than ANYONE on the frontline. Personally I think my 51.00 is a slap in the face just like many of my coworkers. Of course now I will be able to eat out on 2 of my layovers.

The directors and some higher managers were exempted from this bonus payout, so I dont' think they got anything, or only the lower level managers did.

Rocco, I think you better do a little research before making statements. The building A bonuses will be in line with everyone elses as top management was not included. Are you saying the average payout was not $1042? Do you think you should have gotten a full bonus if you were only there from Oct? By the way, don't forget taxes when you do your figuring.
