zenon page says

If you have minimum experience of 1500 total jet aircraft flying hours (not including time spent on solely as a cruise pilot) on either the Airbus A319/320/321/330/350 or the Boeing 737NG/MAX/747/757/767/777/787 and actively flying one of these aircraft with a minimum of 500 hours on current type, we'd like to hear from you.

spot the difference competition. You score max points if you notice zenon has missed the 737 classic out of its list. Who’s made the mistake, Atlantic or zenon? . Could make a big difference to some...
Why do airlines require 500 hours on your current type if you’re non-type rated? You could have 10,000h on B747 and now currently fly say a B767 with 300h on type and wouldnt qualify.

Got the thanks but no thanks email too... pretty frustrating... 4600hrs TT, 2600hrs Jet > 50t, 1000hrs PIC Jet > 50t, 747-400 rated and currently flying the type but not enough hours on type!

Use to just be 2500hrs, previous Boeing and Airbus experience didn't it?

They're doing their best to ensure they get the 1500hr guys so that they can put them on the new scale of 4 increments lower.

Has anyone heard anything from Zenon recently? I’m in the middle of the process but they’ve suddenly stopped responding to emails when they used to be very quick...?!

i see the A346 is now to remain in service until at least Summer 2020 rather than retired next month.
May need more crews? Prob due ongoing 787 engine woes.
Lot of unhappy 346 rated crew again seeing yet more months of unending JFK and last minute roster disruption, and yet more Junior pilots getting A350/787 Courses.
