No recent press released on the FAA web site. But hey... CNN may know something the FAA doesn't.

Age 60--65

How about age 60 to 65 in southeast Asia?

Which SE Asian airlines can a captain fly for over age 60 ?

Say you were an expat captain in Asia and your contract dried up when you were 60 or 61 . . .

Which southeast Asian airline(s) could you go to?

Many have age restrictions.

It would hurt to plan on flying to 65 and then get locked out of the last 4 or 5 years of pay you counted on.

China won't hire expats over 55.

I think I'll file a discrimination law suit against China.

Cathay Pacific and Dragonair are age 65.

Just a personal opinion but I think in the next 10 to 15 years, you will see at least age 67 in the Asia region. In Australia there is no retirement age (due to that being a discrimination factor) so long as you can hold a valid medical. In fact the oldest B-737 Captain in the world flies for a freight company in Australia.
