Ryanair pilots are looking for 101% pay increase.

I’m sure not all the pilots are on €172,000 now but bloody hell......chocks away Ginger.

Some of the figures I've found show a basic salary is €85,000 for pilots but average income of about €156,000, including expenses, pension contributions, productivity allowances and sectoral payments (based on how many hours they fly).

If the pilots are asking for an increase in basic salary to €171,000 but get rid of all of their extra allowances, is it really a 101% pay increase? Or is it a 10% increase?

Those numbers might not be accurate but the 101% increase cannot be correct either; I'd be fairly confident my numbers are closer to the truth than 101% is. Also, if average income for a pilot is €156,000 but only half of it is guaranteed, and the pilots ask for all of it to be guaranteed but agree to eliminate the extras, is it a pay increase at all? If it is has no payroll impact on the employer, but increases certainty of wages for the pilots, don't both sides gain? The employees with greater income certainty, the employer with more predictable salary costs....

I don't know the exact figures, but I'd be confident the claim the pilots are seeking a 101% increase is not the same as saying that what the pilots are seeking will cost ryanair 101% more in pilot staffing costs for the same pilots manning the same flights.
