A Jetstar pilot says the $ 24 million salary paid to Qantas boss Alan Joyce is boiling his & # 39; blood.
The pilots of the budget airline are locked up in a wage dispute with management because of a negotiation agreement that ended in April.
The captain, who wanted to remain anonymous due to contractual agreements with the airline, said he felt he needed to speak out after the & # 39; staggering & # 39; Joyce's salary was recently revealed.

The Jetstar pilot says there are many unhappy employees in the organization because of the pay tactic management tactics
He said there were many unfortunate employees in the organization due to the freezing of management.
& # 39; If I know what I've been through at Jetstar for the last 10 years and you see Alan Joyce running away with $ 24 million, then my blood will boil & # 39 ;, the captain said news.com.au.
The airline has had regular meetings with the Piloters' Association since April in an attempt to resolve the wage dispute.
The pilot, who regularly operates international routes, said the limit of a three percent pay rise amounted to a reduction in the salaries of pilots due to the speed of modern airlines.
& # 39; The Dreamliner is 4 percent faster than the Airbus it has replaced, it is a very fast aircraft. We have a 3 percent pay rise on a plane that flies 4 percent faster and we are paid per flight hour, so it was actually a pay cut & quot ;, said the captain.
A Jetstar spokesperson said that publication pilots have access to performance bonuses on top of their annual salary increase of 3 percent.
& # 39; Since January, we have had regular and constructive discussions with negotiating representatives about a new company agreement. There are a number of complex areas to discuss and processing takes time, but we are determined to do this and are optimistic that we will reach an agreement, & # 39; said the spokesperson.
The captain said the quality of the meals was a major issue among pilots.
The airline responded by saying that the meals were designed by qualified dietitians and that feedback from the pilots was taken into account.
Jetstar pilots who fly long-haul international flights are, according to the publication, paid between $ 82,000 and $ 228,000 as a base salary, with the flight captains paid at the top of the scale.
Reserve Bank of Australia chief Philip Lowe recently said that the huge wage differences between employees and executives were worrying.
