Default Flexjet or Atlas Air?

Hi guys, I currently have the option of going to Atlas Air or Flexjet, I know whatís been said about Atlas, but the 747 is very attractive for me on the other hand Flexjet have very attractive contract but Iíve never flown corporate which is very appealing to me as well except the Phenom 300
Iím rated on the A320, TT 15000, PIC 5000 TRI & TRE.

What's so attractive about the 747? Unless you have SJS.

Pick 121 over 135 with your hours.

I would agree to pick 121 over 135, but have you explored other option besides Atlas? I believe JetBlue and Spirit are both hiring, and they offer significantly more in overall compensation than Atlas does.

If you want the opportunity flying around the world, Atlas is a good choice if offered the job. The 747 ainít bad either

The 747 is attractive... then the gear comes up. You look down at the FMC and realize you have 15 hours to go, you then take a look at your PCD, crap a schedule change during taxi out. After my 15 hour flight, Iíve got min rest of 10 hour, then a 15 hour flight back to CVG, wait- then another 10 min rest, to fly another 15 hours back to Korea... then it hits you- Iíve got 17 days of this, oh gosh- I hope they donít extend me into my X days, that will be a 21 day trip... when will
I sleep, when will I eat... a few weeks later youíre still working, then you get a $1700 paycheck for all your hard work-

Then it really sets in- Iíve moved millions of dollars of freight, flying 100m dollar airplane, and they gave me $1700 bucks.

Youíre welcome to come see for yourself - but donít say I didnít warn you.

Kalitta or Omni have new and better contracts and would satisfy your wanderlust/big airplane needs. I would think both are attainable with your quals. Between the two though Atlas would be a total gamble Iíd take the bird in hand with Flexjet.
