I really hope you aren't implying that pilots salary will make or break an airline.

So you'd agree your post is a total non sequitur, so why bother

If the company is squeezing pilot salaries, just to survive, it's already too late. It's a common excuse used by management, but I don't buy it.

Low pay means pilot attrition, hiring struggles and cancelled flights. Cancel one wide body flight, especially in Europe and you'll probably have paid for most of the pilots' annual salaries in lost revenue, hotels, reimbursements, travel vouchers, etc.

What a grown up, anyone who calls you out is a "troll"

I agree with what goingnowherefast, on top of that the industry is having some RECORD years here! IF now is a bad time to ask for a raise when in your mind is it ok? Clearly not when the company is doing poorly, but not when they're doing well either?

A personal attack is not the way to have a discussion. You were looking for a pissing contest. Play nice and we can have a "grown up" conversation. The two most important things when flying are attitude.

Moving on, when is an appropriate time to ask for a raise?
