US Air CEO gets big compensation hike

The CEO of Tempe-based US Airways received a 44 percent increase in compensation to $5.5 million last year, The Associated Press reports.

US Airways disclosed CEO Doug Parker's compensation in a regulatory filing Monday that also served as a prospectus for the company's proposed merger with American Airlines.

The merger will make Parker the CEO of the world's biggest airline.

Parker's 2012 salary was $550,000, unchanged from previous years. He got stock and option awards valued at $2.7 million, a cash incentive of $2.2 million, and $47,821 in other compensation.

In a note to employees, Parker said his pay was based on compensation for CEOs of other airlines and similarly sized companies and was tied to the company's performance and its stock price. The company earned record net income of $637 million last year.
