The CEO of JetBlue has decided to lower his salary from $500,000 to $250,000 for the remainder of the year due to the worsening airline economy. They have also put a hold on route expansions and receiving new aircraft.
Even though $250,000 per year can still go quite far and it is only for 6 months or so, I think it does show a lot when a CEO is willing to suffer a little bit with the rest of their employees.
