This question is for everyone (airline pilots, comm/genav pilots, aviation enthusiasts, or if you have no connection to aviation whatsoever..):
You're flying as an international Captain on a heavy jet based on the U.S. east coast with no ties to anyone - no family (except family such as parents) or anything.
Your airline is on the verge of merge and you hear that there is a possibility of a major downgrade or worse - without a paycheck. But you are uncertain.
Around the same time, another airline (new startup) far overseas has offered you an A320 Captain position with almost three times the pay and quite a few added benefits and perks. There is also a slight possibility for a promotion to assistant chief pilot at one of their start up bases. The keyword with this one is: new. Meaning: the unknown is the future of that airline.
Which one would you choose?
Have a great day everyone!
