Don't read too much into 8-9years.... as some of these FOs would've joined as SOs and don't have the hours after 4-5years for Upgrade. Also some FOs have failed the Command Upgrade once or multiple times, some might tell you others won't. Also if you have a warning letter then you are illegible for Command Upgrade until it expires - again some might not tell you this. Basically if you joined as a DEFO 'with hours' and have a clean record, if you are still an FO after 8-9years something must be wrong.
