Anyone in the know re how many redundant 73 drivers there are still out there to be called up. I assume VA will be turning to their EOI external list in the new year

Still quite a lot. Depends how many want to take the offer up. It went near bottom of list but then right back up again last bid.

Yes I think the closer we get to 2026 (recall expiry) the further up the list the recalls we go/happen. I and many are in the States having a burn on a wide body with Atlas and the like, full intentions on returning to VA but not quite yet. Having too much fun getting this out of our systems.

There would still have to be over 500 pilots left on the list who are inactive. How many of those have retired / left the industry / have no intention of coming back to VA - well your guess is as good as any.

Good on those that are off doing the Atlas thing who are hedging their bets with a position to return - you’d just have to be careful not to leave your run too late if you were planning on coming back. This level of recruitment is unprecedented and there has to be a time approaching soon enough where you think the doors will close and recruitment will stop or at least slow significantly.
