Before the many get excitied. The salary of the present ceo is about 350k.

By contrast, British Airways chief executive Keith Williams receives a basic salary of 650,000, while Carolyn McCall at easyJet is on 665,000 a year before bonuses. Even Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary, who recently claimed to be the “most underpaid and underappreciated airline boss in Europe”, received €768,000 (623,608) last year in basic salary.
In contrast with WW

IAG was formed in January last year through the merger of BA and Spain’s Iberia. Mr Walsh’s salary increased from 735,000 at BA in 2010 to 825,000 at IAG in 2011.

VS is a much smaller airline than those however. 350K is certainly not bad!!!!!!!!

Does anybody know what the EK boss earns?
