I will reject it.
The pilot's main premise is that the A380 is a bigger plane and so they have to be paid more.
It is outrageous.
The premise is not whether they are now overall getting lower pay than other airline pilots.
Look, the company paid a lot for the new plane for the pilot to fly.
And he wants to company to pay him more just because it is a bigger plane?
Think of the Garuda and Adam Air pilots. It seems they have to make do and somehow safely fly an old plane that may have maintenance problems.
If this silly money grubbing sideshow succeeds, then....
The next time your boss gives all the staff new souped up latest PC with 300GB harddisk with the best software, you will insist to be paid more?
If the boss changes his car from a Hyundai Sonata to a Rolls Royce, the chauffeur can demand to be paid more?
If the SAF upgrades from AMX13 to Leopard 2 tank, the tankies will demand steep pay rise?
The restaurant owner spends millions to buy spanking new high grade kitchen equipment and his chefs then demand to be paid more?
Your company boss moves the office from Woodlands Industrial estate to 50th sty penthouse at No 1 Shenton Way and you say, wah...now must pay you more because have to work in this newer and better office.
Your photo company boss upgrades from the company equipment Canon 300D to Canon 1DS Mk III and you immediately demand to be paid more, because the new equipment is more complicated and difficult to use.
