I agree the EU LCC capain salary of Eu45k/35k is ridiculous, but it's quite correct. That is the reality of what LCCs are doing. As for the sell out - I was there when it happened, and three guys who had been co-opted onto the BALPA CC because they had the management worried because they had the membership's ear with a lot of good ideas and tough talk suddenly became pussycats when they became the heads of the council. They pushed through a deal that lost all the FOs a lot of flight pay and all of their loyalty bonus, a combined 14k gross for 5-yr FOs, and two weeks leave, without a ballot, and were suddenly promoted to TRE and then all TREs got a 25% rise. Hmm...
