Wake up call?
 
The European, US and Chinese economies are headed for serious trouble and some here are speculating about an expansion in 2012? :\

If the crisis year 2009 is of any reference, then 2012 could get really interesting and we will soon find out how reliable (?) our new 'partner' from the Middle East will turn out to be...

Perhaps any future expansion will be in DOH instead of LUX? :suspect:

If CargoLux is not hiring for awhile, you could always apply to Qatar Airways... QR is part owner of Cargolux. If you have Boeing time you might get hired onto the 777 at QR (hiring quite a bit) and then get the chance to fly the 777F. I am pretty sure the 777Fs visit LUX. I am sure upgrade time is much faster at QR.

@ ray cosmic

I heard a course of 6 F/Os each starts in december and january.
How about upgrades in 2012?

Iver;

Well... With all respect, I would like to argue that living in Europe working for Cargolux is not quite the same as flying for Qatar based in Doha...:(

I guess a little patience is what's needed.. They'll hire again sooner or later.

Hiring 2012
 
Well, airlines tend to go into panic mode when the economy is slowing down. Inside talks are about hiring freeze for 2012, but also heard 40-60 new pilots needed for additional A/C. So anything can happen. The only time to tell if 2012 will see new pilots been hired is at the end of dec 2012!
Good luck to everyone, things are looking brighter then the mood makes you feel!

:ok:

Hello guys,

Who else is kept in the holding pool and since when? I think we will be swimming several months, looking at the crisis...

Aedius 13th Dec 2011 15:20

@glc660 & 80sghost:
Can't say for sure but what I know is that around beginning-mid November, CV decided to stop the hiring for at least December and January because of a big drop in cargo handling and the worsening worldwide economic crisis (which is yet only at its beginning).

Last Friday (9th of December), there was apparently a board meeting to decide whether the hiring would only postponed or completely canceled until the situation improves. Haven't heard anything about the results of that meeting yet...

80sghost 13th Dec 2011 17:21

Thank you very much for the info Aedius.
Please keep us informed.:ok:

Any news guys?
Thanks in advance :ok:

I called Interpersonal/Career-aero this morning and they told me that Cargolux has no need for first officers at the moment.
Maybe a small number IF they decide to hire f/o's but not before the second half of 2012..

"According to the latest corporate planning, Cargolux is not forseeing namable pilot hiring for 2012."

received from career.aero today...

word was that a few new joiners may be send home as of this month, due to the current slow down. Very sad indeed especially after the recent recruitment drive in Lux. Best of luck to all.

Do you have a credible source for this info, or is this just wild and totally unfounded speculation?

wrong info
