Did you have to re-apply since you were accepted since pre-covid?
And when did you status change to "under review"?

Btw, what's you experience?

Hi mate, was it a full re submit or did you just update your profile?

Well, I had to re submit the application but had to update my license and medical anyway. Did however write a new application letter and update my CV. So in effect, really just an entire new application 😂

Under which country's legislation are these lawyers chasing the employees who left early ?
Cannot remember but the cost of a type rating for one of these aircrafts, between 40 000 - 60 000 USD depending on type.

I don't know under which legislation but they are not short of resources.

Many consider the business model unsustainable, with new, shiny and expensive jets on what must be eye-watering leases.
But we are only pilots, right?
Correct, never any words about profits, only growth. You also have to consider they bought all their jets at the last financial crisis. There is no way they paid full price for all the aircrafts they bought back then. That is their secret weapon. The problem will be next time they have to buy new aircrafts. Many of their aircrafts are not so young anymore. Some approaching 10 years. Question is for how long they can use them? 5 years? 10 years? This type of jets are not made to fly like an airline.

Side note: Who want's to be a TRE/TRI in VJ? Work 17 days and then go to the simulator on your off days to work even more? Also for a compensation that is half of the TRE/TRI going rate.

I believe all applications and assessments were put on hold due to COVID.

The lady I spoke to said that it will all take a while to go through all applications. Guess patience is required again.

You'd have thought that they would close the application after a certain amount
