You're seriously uninformed in you think rj captains make 6 figures.
That's not remotely true. At my regional, upgrades are around 2 years right now. A captain on year 3 pay will be making in excess of $90/hr, and it will be over $95/hr on Jan 1. The top of our pay scale is like $150/hr.
You definitely don't seem to understand the difference between a block hour and a credit hour. I'm deadheading back to base on Friday morning. I'm getting paid 4.2 hours for that, and not blocking anything. In fact, I'm going to just go home instead of back to base.
It's not at all uncommon for people to credit 90+ hours a month, but perhaps only actually block 50-60.
As a matter of fact, I expect to make more than 65K as a first year FO, between salary, per diem, and bonuses.
Your information seems to be about 5 years old.
What regional tops out at $150/hr? Looking at the top regional pay scales I don’t see it.
My mistake. Republic tops out at $140/hr starting next year. Currently $136/hr.
