The rates they were offering for US based pilots were not in line with US salaries.

They’re employing US-based pilots. Just like a thousand other foreign companies that employ millions of Americans. They all offer competive salaries based on local market conditions — except NAI or whatever they call themselves these days.

Unfortunately, pilots are still showing up to interview because “it beats flying an RJ.”

This right here.

But they’re employing US-based pilots, are they not? They have to compete for local labor just like a thousand other foreign companies operating in the US.

If they are successful in meeting their needs for U.S. based pilots, then from a corporate perspective, they are paying what they need.

This is true.

But in regards to who if willing to fly a shiny 787 for RJ wages well ... let's call a spade a spade.

This is particularly true when considering that the average new hire pilot at a legacy in Europe is in their early 20’s. In the US, pilots at that age are at a regional, getting paid pretty much garbage. Although that garbage has gotten better as of late from what I read.
The MPL makes just about anybody hirable....

Plenty of willing souls wanting to be Airline pilots wanting to live the dream.... keeps wages low. Like the US used to be.
