That depends, whats important to you?

Domicile? Money? Time off? Upgrade? 401k? Healthcare? Seniority?

It's a sad day when somebody asks if AWA or gojet is better.

Sounds like GoJet/TSH is getting bought by Republic. U can read about it on this website...compass/TSA threads.

Still just a rumor. Bloomberg ran a story over six months ago that UAL was looking into the purchase of ExpressJet. Since then, nothing. Even if Republic makes a purchase, it wonít necessarily be all of TSH. Maybe just TSA? TSA and another part?

I do think the 25 -700ís that UAL will cut are coming from GoJet. While itís possible they get the -175ís UAL purchased Iím not counting on it.

Air Wisconsin vs GoJet 2021
 
Former XJTer here. Hoping to revive this thread as Iíve been fortunate enough to be invited to interview with both during these wild times. Quick background: Iím a NJ native who started with XJT early last year and finished my ATP/type ride just in time before the music stopped, so Iím still sitting at just a thousand hours. Pros of AWAC: they own their planes, $5k bonus, better training. Pros of GoJet: growing, newer and bigger airplanes, EWR base. My biggest concerns with AWAC: future of the 200, commuting. Biggest concerns of GoJet: quality of training, their aircraft are all leased. Given my situation, which would you pick and why?

while ZWís future may look bleak, the owners know how to make money. I doubt they are willing to quietly ride off into the night in 2 years at the end of the UA contract. The problem is we are a private company, so they donít have to tell us jack squat. Is there a plan? Probably. No one who knows is saying anything though. The training here at ZW is amazing. You will be expected to know a good amount about the plane and think about real world situations. The 200 doesnít hold your hand like the 700/900 doe systems wise.

G7, they seem to be the 550 darling, but as we saw with Compass, TSA, & Expressjet, contracts donít mean too much in CPA land. One has to wonder how much magic Uncle Hulas has left in the bag. Same could be said for ZW though too. Honestly I really only see OO or RPA (maybe EDV) being safe in 5 years.

Itís tough, but congrats on having the invites. Iíd go with AW personally, only because Iíd be shocked if GoJet was around in a few years. I think itís 50/50 with them at best. AW on the other hand always finds a way to push through, but obviously there future isnít solidified yet. Either way, wish you the best, hopefully we start hiring at SkyWest shortly and you get an invite!
