I know a guy he did his interview in 2nd week of March and joined in Dec.

Also another guy did in june and joined in june itself ( urgent requirement abd he didn't had any notice to serve)

I was in March

Hi guys! How you doing??
Well let me tell you about my case and some friends coming from the 737NG.
We applied since December 2014 and we did the interview the first week of March as DEC.
We were approved around March 15th.
Until today we got the same mails as many of us here about the Holding Pool and the new 18 months revision.
Couple friends on the line assure me the B787 it's been slowly as DEC.
The B777 has more afluency in the movements.
There are as well many moves from the right seat to the left side in the fleets.
So I believe this huge pool have many people probably since December 2014 or January 2015 something around!
And the reasons are many as well.
And also, the trainings supposed to be full too with more than 50 pilots p/month on type.
Hopefully my review helps others!
Be safe guys!! 🛫

More likely bad news for people currently swimming in the pool.

Road shows in Singapore and Johannesburg to go fishing for typed
and curent pilots recently made redundant in those areas.

If hired they will normally bypass the pool and go straight to line training.
