Default Top Ten highest paid airline CEOs in the world

Found it in another thread.

Dixon in the $10m high club | smh.com.au

Glenn Tilton - UA - $US10.3 million
Geoff Dixon - QF - $AUD11.92 million
Douglas Steenland - NW - $US7.73 million
Larry Kellner - CO - $US7.31 million
Douglas Parker - US - $US5.4 million
Gerard Arpey - AA - $US3.1 million
Willie Walsh - BA - £701,000
Jean-Cyril Spinetta - AF-KLM - €1.39 million
Wolfgang Mayrhuber - LH - €2.4 million
Chew Choon Seng - SIA - $S3.5 million


A good point made was that from the top six, five are CEOs from the struggling/furloughing/paycutting/nickel and diming/mess that are U.S Airlines, which are also by far the worst to be a passenger with, on that list.

Looks like the ones making the most ran their airline into the ground.

About two years ago while interviewing with colgan I was asked by chuck colgan why airlines are such difficult businesses to run. The only answer to come into my mind, the ceos are raping the company and then wondering why they aren’t making money.

Not surprising. Corporate greed at its best. Just look at our current economic status. Damn bastards.

Where is Gary Kelly? Is there some sort of inverse relationship in the airline business of CEO pay to airline earnings?

Whats really needed is a breakdown of CEOs that deserve what theyre getting paid...

Probably would be looking at that list inverted...
