Meal Allowance Question

I work for a US carrier and we don't get a meal allowance per se, but a per diem rate. It has stagnated over the last few years. I'd like to see what some of the UK, Aus, SA, European, Asian airlines are paying crews for meal allowances these days.

Our per diem rate is a lousy $2.40 per hour from block out to block in!

Well I live in FLA but fly out of EWR. That is our international per diem rate - one size fits all - whether we're going to an expensive location or not!

European Carrier, Per Diems: $ 5,90 pr hr in the US/CAN, 5,50 in Europe (EC area), $ 6,60 other countries. Could be worse I guess, and (still) mostly free from tax. But for how long?

Too less

Asian Carrier, Europe US$ 3,25 per hour, Asia 2,50 $, US about 2,65 $ per hour. In Europe Breakfast is included and some US destinations. Was not adjustet the last few years, especially when we paid 1.60 $ = 1 Euro. Cleaning and Laundry is not considerd.

But at least we do not pay for the Food and Drinks on board...... yet !!!

Fly safe and land happy
