While I'm on the course I will try to post what I have found interesting from an ex-Boeing driver's point of view.
I have two trip remaining on the 767, I will certainly miss it!
You will miss it!
Those who love Boeing's philosophy tend to not like Airbus' one.
While I know no one personally, I've heard several times stories about pilots saying that they would not like (or even accept) fly an Airbus. I've never heard the opposite case (not that they don't exist).
I am curious about the change. Can you share with us what's behind the curtains? Just needing a change? New airline? Changing from FO in the 767 to PIC in the 320?
While the A320 is more modern than 767, if it's in the same airline, same position, and same money, it looks like a sort of down-grade. I know that Aerolíneas 747 pilots didn't want to switch to the A340, and the same with Austral MD-80 pilots switching to the E190. In these cases they had no choice because the airlines got rid of the older models.
In any event, I wish you the best with this new challenge.
