I absolutely hated sending that email.

Everyone at UA has been super welcoming. Training was excellent. The opportunities for varied flying and different aircraft types are a huge benefit.

I'm very conscious of the fact that few pilots have ever been given the luxury of choosing between two great carriers, as I was. (I came up during the Lost Decade, so this recent hiring boom has been astonishing to witness).I guess I'm not answering your question very well, but to put it another way: you really have a very special pilot group at SWA, and I'm sure I'd have been very happy there. But I'm looking forward to some fascinating flying at UA, especially once I bid over to the WB fleet. For now, though, I'm learning how to drive the Guppy as best I can 🙏

I'm glad you got both opportunities. Have fun at UA
