The winter training for new entrant FOs has just begun/beginning with circa 300 joining. I would imagine more movement early next year.

With a rumoured 300 FOs leaving for BA and circa 120+ promotions to the left, I think there's going to be a need that Oxford and CTC alone can't fill. The 300 to be trained this winter hasn't accounted for that much attrition. The fleet is expanding from 220 to 300 over the next five years as well. As well as another record year for profits. Based on this I can't see an end to DEC and DEFO recruitment for a little while, especially if BA keep poaching the experienced FOs and leaving a large experience gap.

Just my thoughts though.
