AA Pilot Salaries


Aug 30, 2002
I''m an AA overhaul mechanic at TUL.I do not think that pilots are overpayed and I appreciate the job they do for us daily.Several years ago I was on an evening flight from DFW-PHX and we hit some thunderstorms around El Paso.It was bouncing the DC-10 all over the sky.I had white knuckles on the seat armrests and the pilot was climbing,turning,diving,to try to find some stable air.I did not hear anyone on the aircraft complain about how much the pilot was being payed or how much Starbucks he had been drinking.Most anti-pilot comments within the airlines are based on ignorance.Thanks again AA Pilots for a job well done.
