I remember a recent thread about Australian regional airlines and their standard base pay. I was wondering if anyone out there would care to update the figures plus add the extra entitlements for each company, i.e. staff travel, over time etc.
The base pay hasn't changed. They are most likely working on days off, extension allowances...etc that bummed their weekly take home pay by 50%. When they solve the crewing crisis, they will just go back to what the base pay be.
Depends on the Base. Daily Travel Allowance (DTA) is the biggi'. Out of Sydney with an average of 6-8 overnights per month, all Overnight DTA (more than $5 per hour) is paid from the commencement of duty at home base til completion of that duty, and it's Tax Free! My group certificate showed that I earned approx $11K in overnight DTA for the last financial year, that's typical for most Sydney pilots, Capts and F/O's. Depending on the individuals Tax Rate, you would have to earn, I'd say between $15-18K before tax for a similar take home.
Having said that, it is an allowance, and it's intention is to cover meals while away from home base.
