Yes Jumbo2 I gather that the retirement numbers are perhaps not as high as some have hoped for..or as some predicted (guilty) . There's also I think the sticky issue of the company for some mysterious reason being slow to honour requests for some of the part time contracts.

Opening recruitment again? Aren't there 100+ twiddling their thumbs in the pool already?

Well bearing in mind those of us in the pool who applied long haul were asked if we'd accept a shorthaul offer (to which I said yes); having recruitment open again can only be a good thing surely. Unless of course it's only for 320 type rated only and these people continue to jump above those of us in the pool that are non type rated.

10+ 787s arriving next year and the 350s arriving in 2019. There's still not enough pilots for 2020 with high levels of recruitment apparently. Hopefully good news for those in the hold pool and those wishing to apply.*

*all based on yammer and flying with management.

Yammer is an internal discussion forum / notice board for the whole company....

The latest from the lady who is in charge of all manpower and it's on this weeks flight ops video. "No DEP recruitment for the rest of this year" but she emphasises that's the current plan and is subject to change depending on many factors. The DEP pool is ready for next year.

I know it's not exactly what people want to hear but hopefully it helps keep people sane.

What I read into what was said Bex is that they won't be issuing any start dates to DEP's for the remainder of the year but those guys and girls in the pool will be first in line for jobs in 2018 (which is exactly what they have been told in recent updates). It's still entirely possible and/or probable that recruitment will open later in the year for the rest of the positions available in 2018.

Will the DEP places for 2018 be allocated in Autumn 2017?

No guarantees; that's the quick answer. But hopefully so!

Personally hoping for that scenario, seeing as my hold pool status is valid until the end of October for a call to start in January or February 2018. Fingers crossed and thanks for the update.

Those expiring Autumn 17, are you 320 TR or going for LH positions out of interest?

Non 320, non rated on Boeing. Applied and swimming for LH, but happy to accept SH.

Does anyone know when the internal bidding process opens / closes, and the results are published? I'd guess that'd be a good indication of when the hold pool starts to drain, and if DEP opens up again.

Normally opens around July but results aren't out until Oct at the earliest these days.

But I should imagine the results are known internally with a fair amount of certainty before this date. Therefore requirements for SH/LH will be known and offers made accordingly.
