Default ABX Opinions

This may be the wrong venue, but I am trying to make the best decision possible using all available resources. That being said, here goes.....

My situation:

I was just offered a class date with ABX. I am currently a sim check airman with a large regional airline. Schedules are great, money is also pretty good (most of us PC guys made north of $200K in 2016), and I live in base. However, the management are backstabbing, untrustworthy, stereotypical people who are out to fire every one of us. So, who knows how long this gravy train will last.

Question:

Am I way off for even considering making a switch? Or is it a really good time to get in with ABX? I have at least 25 yrs left, not that I want to work that much longer.

Honest opinions are appreciated.

Merry Christmas and thanks in advance!

Our gravy train has come to an end with the hiring of this douche. Stay away!

I seriously question your judgement. 200k and you live in base? Why would you leave for 42k?

I plan on re-applying to UPS after the new year, however I don't know anyone over there.

Even though I would like to fly a heavy internationally, it's not worth pushing all-in with a crap hand. The only major that interests me is AA. I hear horror stories from buddies at Kalitta.

I appreciate all the honest input. It will certainly be considered as I go forward.

Thanks again.
