A Letter From Your Frontier Pilots
Frontier Airlines: A Bad Bargain
Frontier pilots are lowest-paid in the industry and ready to strike. Your cheap fare may NOT be a bargain if that happens.
You should know that Frontier pilots are ready to go on strike when legally authorized by the federal government, because owners and management are enriching themselves at their employees’ expense. Your cheap fare may not prove to be a bargain if that happens.
You should also know as you choose an airline for your vacation or other travel needs that Frontier management has enjoyed huge profits, but still refuses to negotiate a fair contract for Frontier pilots, who currently earn 40 percent less than their peers flying the same kind of planes.
Frontier Pilots are ready to strike when released from federally mediated bargaining if management doesn’t negotiate a market-rate contract that pays them a fair wage.
You May Want to Ask Yourself: Is that Cheap Fare Worth the Risk of a Pilot Strike?
As a passenger, you have many choices on which airline to fly. Do you really want to support an airline that is willing to risk a strike because it is trying to cut corners on pilot pay?
