That was indeed a requirement.
But do people still really apply without meeting said requirements which were listed? I guess a few maybe did.
Btw, is English level 6 really that rare to have?

there are countries that do not have a lot or any examiners that are allowed to test people for LVL 6. Some countries even refuse giving out LVL 6 certificates to non-native speakers. It's a business, those recurring tests for LVL 4 and 5. Same as with airport security, big business.

Thanks for the informative response!
Perhaps I am mistaken, but Germany is such a country which does not issue Level 6 to non-native speakers, correct?

Wasn‘t an issue in the past. Best to give one of the lvl 6 bots a call.

No, it does, I got one there a decade ago and was able to keep it when I transferred my license to Austria.

Do you truly believe that even half of the applicants actually looked at the specific requirements? These days desperate, as it's quite obvious from this thread as well, pilots apply for just about anything that gets them going, so I don't think any of the requirements are holding many back from applying. It's the same as thinking that pilots don't apply for positions that clearly states " type rated only ". So, yeah, there's actually a lot of pilots out there that don't actually hold level 6, and there's also a lot of us that probably shouldn't hold level 6.

Mine still showing "under review"

No interview at this time just yet... Anyone else had any progress...?

This process is frustratingly slow but with 4000 applicants that they need to filter through, it's not surprising

No updates here; "Under Review" on XLS, "Received Submission" on Global&Challenger.

Yep...still under review...to be honest, I think that people who were supposed to be called for an interview already got the call...and we don't know because they simply don't follow this forum..but this is just a personal opinion. As far as I know, they need ppl urgently.

Hard to believe that after a month and a half nobody has been contacted for a follow-up.

No Change! All gone very quiet!! Had considered calling them to find out if they are still actively recruiting but haven't heard anything back just yet and haven't taken the plunge....

I'm guessing no one else has heard anything?

No change here either. Does anyone know about anyone who’s got an interview date?
