What is your take-home pay at the end of the month?

I remember an excellent thread about these sums a couple of years ago...
I wonder if anyone would like to update their 2007 positions now for overall comparison?
Who do you work for, in what position and experience, and what is your average monthly take home?
I suppose I need to start. RAF Captain of 15years' standing clearing about 3,440 a month. (that's why many are leaving!)

Air Atlanta Captain 4 years service. About 4000 GBP a month depending how much I worked. All leave unpaid and time home off salary. Some pilots made close to 6000 a month, but they worked all year around with no vacations or time off. Not very healthy.

BA mid fleet year one. 3700 average month (including holidays) and 4000-4500 a month if overtime done. I work hard but choose to do so. The key here is choose. Bidline in itself is the best part of the gig.

750-800 hrs a year in one of the busier bases.

Great fun and frankly I'd still do it for minimum wage. Company so much better than some would have you believe.
