It'd be easier to take this request if the average FA made $48,864 (more than most regional FO's here in the US!) and the average pilot made $175,845 (more than most mainline CA's here in the US, and that's BA's average, which includes their FO's).

Bump up average pay to $176K @ our airlines ($211K for the average CA and $140K for the average FO) and you'd have a lot more volunteers here in the US. UPS just went through this, in fact. Many there took voluntary cuts to prevent a furlough. Of course, they are close to BA's #'s too.
