Yeah indeed they were re calling the older 777 captains to man the 737 and 787 fleet. So you are right in some way.
Sadly the pilots resigning are the younger Captains who still have many a year to give to KQ. From what i gather the greatest attrition has been on the E190 and the 737 which is why this hiring process. And if we do have a shortage of about 40-60 pilots on the current fleet as it stands (50 % being E jets). Simple extrapolation will make me bet E-jet.
