You have to ask yourself what it is that you want.
As far as pay, you already know the answer to that.
Commuting, absolutely K4, I don't commute, I travel as a paying customer, I check my bag, K4 pays for it.
Health care. K4 is hard to beat, is it industry leading? I think it is.
I hate commuting so much, I was tempted to leave the industry. For this reason, the majors are not appealing to me,
No crash pads either

I have been in multiple crash pads. Hot bunks are a thing of the past as far as I can tell. I never shared a bed with anyone.

Hot beds are still very much 'in fashion'....
