To save United Airlines, I would furlough the bottom 3,000 pilots on the senority list. Secondly I would cut the pilots salaries down from $350,000 per year for the senior 747 captains to $150,000. I would make 5 year co-pilot pay $100,000, instead of the current $160,000. This would be fair since taxpayer money is being used to save the airline. After all this is done, I would farm out 40% of the mainline routes to the lower cost feeder RJ's (oops, I guess Goodwin is already starting to do this). That would probably do the job.
