Funnily enough, I canít find PJRUNe to verify thatÖ.

Debating pay is pointless, itís market economics. The simple fact is that becoming a Judge is far harder than becoming a Qantas Captain (and please donít quote time to command, thats a BS seniority issue). Lawyers take a pay CUT from being a QC or SC to be a judge.

Good on QF Captains for getting $500k, Pilots across the world should make the most of the current shortage, and lock it in.

There is however a certain irony to your lament given the constant whinging from QF Pilots about their executive pay levelsÖ perhaps a cultural issue?
