ANA reportedly retiring 35 aircraft this year. Would that mean they are discarding all the B767 variants operated by ANA and Air Japan?

Are you kidding?
The so called “Golden JCAB License” is worthless Mate, besides Japansee aviation is finished as we know.

I for one left with a sense of gratitude and had a wonderful experience both at the company and in Japan. Met some very good people and flew with some great aviators, you will all find a nice landing spot when things start improving again, and they will, sooner than it appears at the moment.
I am sure your previous CRJ experience and marginal AJX captain upgrade will count 😂

When a company evolves and begins to take on an attitude that "it is too big for its boots" it has a tendency to take risks

Unfortunately with the pandemic it has hit ANA hard
The big ego has been subdued, the bubble has well and truly burst

With the $5 billion loss, confidence and money haemorrhaging, there is going to be a meek and mild new ANA
A very different company that will pull back from bold decision making
and on its knees to its creditors

Thanks brother, so nice of you to send good vibes! It did actually land me a 777 DEC position. I return the favor by wishing you all that you wished me.

Mate. I don’t know why i’m even commenting. If you think the 2nd economy in the world and the only far eastern country really aligned to the west, an island so far away and isolated, will remain without aviation this says a lot about your situational awareness.
Not that the shape of their aviation should affect you in any way to be honest.

Every single airline in the world who survives this will be on their knees to their creditors for a few years. Or did you think there is an airline on this planet who can make it on their own burning a couple of billions in their bank?

For those who have JCAB licences and are interested in what is going on in Japan, here are some indications. Just Google, ANA Holdings or ANA Air japan or ANA Peach Aviation. It's all there.
Some example below.

ANA, Peach Aviation to launch joint cargo flights in Japan in Nov.

When you owe the bank 1 million dollars, you're in trouble.
When you owe the bank 10 billion dollars, they're in trouble.

Are there many or any Ossie pilots from Air Japan interviewing for Peach jobs?

Apparently only ex Air Japan captains are being employed as captains at Peach. Air Japan FO's not considered for Peach command positions.

Wonder when air japan will re open its Captain recruitment programme. Now with this vaccine just around the corner.
shouldn’t be much longer I feel before international flying resumes and borders are opened and AJX starts flying with decent loads.
I suppose that would be the cue for the pilots waiting patiently in holding pool.

Aj's biggest market is mainland China but I dont see China will open the door anytime soon.
