Sam 10, or anyone else going for the may assessment? What can you share at the moment? How was that first call with AirJapan last month?

Also, for people with experience between CREW and PARC, which would you recommended? I heard very good things about CREW but that was pre-covid so I don't know how they stack up against PARC who certainly seems like a bigger player out there.
I was told (and read here somewhere...probably back in the thread) that their health insurance was far better than PARC but lost out on Loss of License conditions. I believe a good health insurance for you and the misses can certainly add up as an extra benefit at the end of the month compared to private insurance, at least around here!

No insurance for your family or loss of license.

It truly is. And the only way it will improve is if no one shows up. But that is a long shot at best.

Credit card information

Recently i got the email from CREW.They are saying I could attend the screening session, and for booking the flight tickets they request my credit card information.
But I am not sure this is really CREW or some kinds of fraud.

This is my first time to apply other airline, so I dont know this is common thing or not.

Is there anyone who knows about it??

Thread drift, but that is just blatantly wrong. Tonnes of pilots move between airlines within Japan.

CREW does ask for credit card information to secure the airline tickets and a hotel room for screening and to avoid charges when candidates cancel at the last moment. We've been doing this for years. However, this is a valid concern. We will try to devise a better method of getting this done. Please do continue the application process and stand by for a resolution to this question.

Kraus please retract your statement as it is not accurate and may interfere with our ability to process new candidates.

Thank you.

I think jrmyl was referring to the Japanese legacy carriers. Unlike the United States where in times of high pilot demand (like now) pilots are continuously jumping from United to American to UPS, in search of not commuting, better quality of life, better insurance, better retirement, better looking uniforms or whatever. That doesn't happen with the Japanese legacy carriers. As you said that "Tonnes of pilots move between airlines in Japan" that might be true at the Skymark, Air Do and Star Flyer, but that doesn't happen at the legacy level like in the United States. You will not see any Japanese pilot that started with JAL or ANA right out of high school, all of a sudden jump to Peach because he or she would rather be based in Kansai. That just doesn't happen (unless that person lose their job for some reason) like it is happening here in the US now a days.

People here in the US are leaving, FedEx to go to Delta, and leaving Southwest to go to UPS in search of the proverbial greener pastures. It is as green as it will get in Japan working for JAL or ANA.

Fair enough. Particularly ANA. That said there are a couple of ex ANA guys in my airline and a lot of ex JAL that have all resigned to move elsewhere at some point or another.
JAL and ANA mainline dont take externals, but Air Japan, ANA Wings, and all those full uniform wearing, livery sharing subsidiaries quite often do! As well as those second tier airlines you mentioned.

In the original context of guys leaving Peach for Air Japan - quite likely but I doubt it when its easier to take people from other airlines and not leave Peach short.
A program to allow progression would be a good idea IMO. A similar concept was considered in the JAL group but AFAIK it hasn't gone anywhere.

Just return the contract to pre Covid levels + 7% inflation and none of this will be a problem.

Old shedule share

Can ex-pilot ana share old shedule. I know it is different as now is 787 instead of 767 but are the same destination. They refer to overtime in excess of 70 hours. Can I get in 17 days?. I read an old 2007 post earning more money that is crazy pay drop.
