With CX out, what foreign carrier do you recommend?

I posted about withdrawing from CX. Someone else posted about EK going south.

Which non-US carrier do you recommend and why?

FYI, I'm hellbent on leaving the states and working overseas.

Air Japan?

Marry someone in AUS or NZ and try AirNZ or Qantas?

Thanks.

Here are a few suggestions:

1. Post this 'question' on another more relevant forum
2. Pay a visit to a mental health professional
3. If you are really 'hellbent' (see definition as 'stubborn or recklessly driven) to work outside the US then give the following some consideration; fly to Amman, Jordan and make your way into Syria where you can grow a beard and fight alongside the rebels against ISIS. Marry a couple girls. Have a few kids with each. After a while, make your way into Turkey as a war refugee and live in a camp, learning Turkish, until Erdogan lets you flee to Europe in one of his waves of political blackmail with the EU. Make your way to Germany with your new family. Settle into a refugee asylum centre and learn German. Shave your beard, take the DLR Exams and apply to German(sorry)EuroWings. Keep your mental health problems hidden and in 20 years you may be in the right seat of an A321 Neo with Lufthansa.

Or, seriously, stay in the US.

Cheers,
Soda

Or stay in the US where the current beta cuck culture is rampant and growing daily... Marry a girl and pay for everything and make sure to sign over 50% of whatever you will own or have. Oh and don't worry about the rest a BBC will take good care of her for you. You could watch or record as a bonus.

Then after a few years be proud and strong of the best goddamn country in the world. Join the airforce or whatever true "freedom and democracy world police force" suits you best. Go invade a third world country before they can invade you, offense is the best defense here. **** up their way of life and what little order or "system" they had and then leave. Go back to the greatest goddamn country in the world and rejoice as a hero.

A few years later, complain and make racist or uneducated remarks about all the goddamn "immigrants" or "refugees". Oh and the best part is you don't have to learn any new languages. Just English will have to do.

What's the matter snowflake? Let me guess, you lost your wife to someone of a different race, weren't accepted by your Air Force and had your Green Card Application denied? But stay positive, you speak a language.

Nothings the matter buttercup. Wrong... never got married and never had someone of a different race take my girl either but hey cheer up I hear you are losing not just your women but your whole nation to a different race. Look no further than your "White House".

Never applied to any Airforce. Got a green card already, The Greatest Goddamn Country is not the only country that has a "green card".

I do intend to stay positive, you should too. Too much negativity and you just might shoot up a whole school and noone wants that. Stay in your great and awesome country, leave the rest of the world to the world.

Cheers back at ya,

Yes, America is a horrible country. The world would be so much better off without it. Long live the queen!

Ethiopian. They have nice new 787s, and I hear it is nothing like the US there.

Wow, wouldn't be keen to see what you write when you're actually
upset and negative. As for your noted dislike of the US, I hope for your sake (well-being and karma) that you don't have to fly those go**am Boeings around or use the go**am GPS.

To AvLuv, have you considered Tianjin Airlines? There's a good prep book on flying with them and the lifestyle in China by Capt Duke Nukem you can download here:

Sidenote: I don't live in the US (or Hkg).


Cheers and have a nice day,
Soda

Well, if that thread doesn't cure your 'greener grass' syndrome, I don't know what will...

YM,
Most who post here, as you certainly know, asking for career 'advice' are either:

1. Mgmt Trolls
2. Not a CX pilot
3. A CX pilot who is feeling marginalized and in need of a hug. Aviator's 'Wounded Bird Syndrome'.

Hence, the respective responses. The guys/gals who really want a change just get on with it as decisive adults.

Cheers,
Soda

Sorry, but we're not too keen on having a QF driver with an American accent

I was flying on a QF 737 recently and the captain sounded like a yank.
Also Australian company Rex airlines has many American captains.

If you can obtain the work rights to Australia I believe you would be very welcome. Ignore the above poster (Glorified bus driver)

Cap'n Kev, a.k.a Cap'n Tripod sounded pretty damn American last time I flew with, and he's been in QF around 30 years.
