Air Canada 0.04%
CEO dollar earned per passenger
Air Canada 0.20
CEO salary as percentage of total employee salaries
Air Canada 0.35
CEO salary per tail in fleet
Air Canada $23,620
Adjusting our Canadian CEO's total compensation to reflect the average American CEO compensation averaged over the 4 examples I provided would result in total compensation of:
WJ: $1,694,729 (current: $4,264,400)
Air Canada: $5,169,522 (current: $8,999,225)
Of course this isn't how salaries are calculated, but it paints a pretty good picture.
But remember, it's not appropriate for us pilots to compare ourselves to our higher paid friends down south.

What are the US airline CEO's current salaries? Stats are fine and all, but who cares about percentages when it's total compensation that matters...I kinda doubt the CEO's of Delta/American are making less total bank than the guys at WestJet/Air Canada...and they make it in USD, with far less tax to boot.
We're funny in Canada...love to hate on the Americans, but when we think we can use them to try and make some pointless comparison we're quite happy to use them...
I know you're probably kidding, but if you think this is what CEO's do it goes a long ways to explaining the class envy and greed in Canada...hahah!I would love to sit in my beach chair with a pina colada, sun shades on, at the catsa security screening. Then just say “cha-ching” and point at every passenger I see knowing I make 20 cents each one.
It was tongue in cheek and any time I get a chance to bash politicians I take it.
But... this thread shows how far apart upper management and working class stiffs are in Canadian aviation. I would also assume Canadian airline senior executives teams are pulling in a very high percentage while trying to push down the workers compensation.
Instead of trying to tear others towers down, work on building your own.
Demand a wage fitting your responsibilities, take it or leave it and let the free market decide.
I really don't give a crap what the CEO or the janitor makes.
