More importantly, how big of a jump in PS will we see in 2018? An extra $462,000,000 added to the bottom line before the year even starts. That’s like an extra quarter’s earnings with zero cost involved.

PS is based on pre-tax profit so the tax change will not affect the PS number.

Then I guess we should all be expecting raises. That’s a lot of money that needs to be spread around.

11.3 %. For those in the know....what constitutes “eligible wages”? Sick pay, vacation, training, “other”?

It doesn’t include your excess that you received in 2017, either PS from 2016 or NEC overage you received. You need to subtract those two from your W-2 wage to get the “eligible” wage.

Yeah, I knew those weren’t included but wasn’t sure if sick pay & vacation pay was.

Swiped this off of SWAPA forums:

+Crew Advance
+Retro Pay
- Crew Advance Takeback
+Pilot Med Exam Reimb
+Junior Available Pilot
+Pilot Per Diem Day
+Regular
+Sick
+Training
+Vacation
+Pilot Per Diem Day INT
+USERRA Deemed Comp-Pilot

Eligible Compensation x 11.3% = Profit Sharing
