Heard from a friend that a "few" DAL Captains knocked down 1 MILLION this year. Heard they were on the A350 and were getting bumped for training then flying. I am calling bs but is it possible? If so, good for them, that's awesome!

This is old news and heavily discussed in Delta threads in the Delta sub-forum.
Haven't heard $1m, but have seen $900,000 posted a few times. Either way, it's possible considering being topped on the pay scale, being bought out of trips, and the picking up green slips for triple pay....
