Default What pilots took pay cuts after 9/11?

What pilots took pay cuts after 9/11, and approximately how much (%). I am aware all the legacy airlines took pay cuts, but I am also interested in which other major airlines took pay cuts, and approximately how much (Alaska for example).

Off the top of my head:

UAL: 45%
Alaska: 26% (I think it was a sliding scale there about 22% - 31%)

I'm sure others will chime in, and remember these are just estimates to the best of my memory.

Not to interrupt the topics here but now that airlines are starting to make profits again how many are starting to get those percentages back?

About 28% to 34% for Alaska pilots. The most junior First Officers received the "most" paycut.

Aloha took about a 22% cut, we got back 5% as of Jan. 1st 2007, with 4% increases in 2008 and 2009. Still 9% short of pre 911.

And that's not including the paycut from dropping back to F/O from Capt for some folks.

The Q for this thread should be:

"What pilots DID NOT take pay cuts after 9/11?"
