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.

AJX may never open that door again. Definitely not anytime soon. No expat is working for AJX any longer. They gave everyone the option of bailing permanently or opting for a recall at sometime in the future. So before any "Captain recruitment programme" would start they would need to offer recall to everyone that wants it. And a recall won't be very quick. It will take at least 6 months for the training to get qualified. Figure maximum 8 pilots per class and a class every other month. Figure at least 150 people who will return and you can see it will be a long time before any off street hiring.

Maybe you haven’t read the announcement from the group about how they planned their future?
