New easyJet boss takes salary cut as airline reveals gender pay gap

New easyJet boss takes salary cut as airline reveals gender pay gap

Growing disquiet that the new chief executive of Easyjet landed at the airline on a bigger salary than his successful, and female, predecessor Dame Carolyn McCall has prompted the new man to take a 4.5 per cent pay cut.

Lundgren came in at the end of 2017 as the top exec at the budge airline based in the United Kingdom with a salary of $1.04 million in US currency equivalent, while his outgoing counterpart, Carolyn McCall, was making approximately the equivalent of $990,730 when she left the company after eight years of service.

Johan Lundgren starting annual salary was £740,000. "This does not mean that re is an unequal wage for women in EasyJet, but re is a great gender imbalance in pilot community, aeronautics and aviation industry", company explains.

So let's call this an important start - both in message and in action - aimed at keeping the critical conversation going.

Cole has famously sparred with Strictly judges over the years, and clashed with new head judge Shirley Ballas in the last series. Expressing his disappointment about the recent decision, Brendan confessed that he found his departure hard to talk about.

And the year before that, he made the cut with one shot to spare, but then shot 79 the next day to miss a 54-hole cut. Defending champion Rahm had not even won a Tour event when Woods teed it up at Torrey Pines past year .

He authored the 2016 book 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting , which promises to "help bring a person to a place of personal freedom". He remembers them wearing matching outfits of blue shirts and tan trousers and that the children appeared small and pale.

The gender pay gap in EasyJet is now 51.7%, but the budget airline says this is not because of unequal pay for women. In all other respects his remuneration package is identical to his predecessor. It has a large wage gap of 51.7%. Women make up just four percent of the total number of commercial pilots worldwide.

But we recognise we need to do better. But, as company explains in statement, this is because vast majority of its pilots are men, and ir salary is much higher than that of cabin crew and or employees.

Three years ago easyJet launched its Amy Johnson Initiative to encourage more women to enter the pilot profession. About 5 percent of its pilots are women but the carrier said it hired 49 women pilots in 2017, an increase of 48 percent from the previous year.

Lundgren also announced he will recruit more female pilots, with the aim of hitting 20 per cent by 2020. Some 94 percent of the company's pilots are men, according to a statement from the company.
