Note: Shaded data means data appear questionable.  
Notes:  The full effect of each Delta's and Northwest's restructuring of financials and operations are not fully reflected in 2006.
Pilot Cost includes: salaries and wages, benefits and pensions, payroll taxes and personnel expenses impacted by collective bargaining terms.
Data Source:  US DOT Form 41, schedule P5.2 & T2.
Note:  Data is total cockpit cost and is not per pilot.  To calculate per pilot cost, simply divide by 2.  No assumption is made for relief pilot staffing.
