Estimate is based upon 75 hours flight time per month, for a pilot with a spouse and one child (2 dependents).

This also includes a local 'residence' tax which would also apply to commuting pilots.

(Annual salary)

Captain: 11,761,222 JPY
First Officer: 7,209,344 JPY

These figures are far below a competitive salary. Based on the number of incoming A/C, I fail to see how lowering the required hours will meet their long term staffing numbers. Surely an increase in wages and terms will have the optimum effect.
