Last night 4 check airmen made over$60,000 in bonus money due to low manning in the first officer seat. This does not count the additional payouts in grievances. Keep up the outstanding job Soapy! Cha Ching

Those "early line checks" pay really well.

I think he moved his decimal place over or something. Assuming 4 guys each got 7hrs of jr man pay (4.5 + 2.5 override) at 12yr captain pay ($218/hr) it would be about $6k, not $60k. They probably got jr manned for multiple days, so it might be 2-4x total but i doubt much more than that.

Oh the math is very correct. Multiple day assignments in the right seat. Status quo violations. Get your walking shoes ready.
