JetBlue had two CEOs in 2007. David Neeleman was CEO until May 2007, when he was bounced for (or at least in part for) the now-infamous JetBlue Valentine's Day Massacre of 2007.
Current CEO David Barger took over that role from Neeleman. Together, their combined salaries for 2007 were about $800,000.
"That's OUTRAGEOUS!" you say.
Well, yes it is for such horrific service, but JetBlue's management are responsible corporate citizens when compared to the other weasels that make up the corner offices of the airline industry:
- Delta CEO Richard Anderson: $3.3 million
- American CEO Gerard Arpey: $4.6 million
- Continental CEO Larry Kellner: $7.3 million
- United CEO Glenn Tilton: $23.8 million!
