the over 60 thing finally got fixed, nowadays one flies to 65, no issues..

Yep. We got paid out the remainder of the 2 year contract without issues. (>3 months) Made good money out of it. The whole process was quit efficient. We told them at the 'dismissal meeting' that they would need us again the same year as many guys were leaving to EY/QR and just hadn't resigned yet as they waited for a start date. We even offered to take all our leave and voluntary leave to remain in the company. Not interested. Months later they inquired if we wanted to come back. Yeah right...
