The CEO's pockets are taking the hit because of the concessions that the unions have been able to negotiate and they're not happy. Although DL has been one of the loudest voices against the EAU it's funny how they decided to not even send someone to the table. I guess $2B in profits for several years has a way of keeping you quiet when the issues are brought forward. When the industry takes it's next downturn ( and it will ) DL will be the first one bringing this back up as the reason for the downturn. Mis-management in the industry as a whole has always been prevalent and now is no different. DL tried to change their business model and it has worked for now. Winds of change will come again and we will see at least one more major fall again. IMO
Now there is a lovely statement. A healthy middle-class is a horrible thing! That takes money away from those at the top! To use your example, the CEO of Delta should have made more than his $13.2 million dollars in 2017 and would of except for the flight attendants who made a "ridiculous annual salary". Hopefully he can get more next year so he can trade in his 1988 Oldsmobile.
