Left WN after 4 years. Absolutely no regrets.

Do you really think anyone would admit they made a mistake by leaving?

Is it possible that EVERYONE gets a "great deal" when buying a car? [emoji16] Point taken, though, but I think most would admit to it if they subsequently got furloughed. [emoji15] Now, where's that piece of wood?!?!

[QUOTE=Ihateusernames;2821191]Do you really think anyone would admit they made a mistake by leaving?

The OP asked for opinions from people who have had a similar experience or perspective. I’m not trying to rip on you but the question is a bit like a red herring argument. It seems as though the responses were in line with the requested information. It would be nice to read the I’m not happy having made the switch perspective to round out the conversation.

The future is not good for ups and fedex with trade wars and amazon. Better stay at swa, more secure. I know guts who are regretting leaving legacy plus swa now that the above threats are real.

Oh, itís the doom and gloom guy! Just a few months ago you recommended Cathay and Emirates over UAL and Delta. That is so completely insane I donít see how anyone could take you seriously.

As we all know, Passenger airlines are immune to such things as a Trade war that would devastate the US Economy

To ethereal and not practical advise.
Historically, goods are produced wherever most cost effectively produced.
If costs to high for Chinese goods, manufacturers and the markets move rapidly to other countries. Mexico, Vietnam, Malayasia, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, and even many European and South American countries will start producing these goods over a short order of time. Cargo jets will simply move to new airports around the world.
Amazon is low yield volume. FedEx and UPS don't trip over themselves to fly just any volume, they pursue high yield non residential volume to make more money without buying jets to move very low profit volume. Amazon will not be able to cover their own volumes for a long time and wont have a real capability to compete with the business to business high yield volume IMO.
So at a pilot employment level, pax or freighter, as much theoretical risk for another 911 as the Amazon threat and trade wars impact.
