Have jet 2 stopped hiring Direct Entry Captains. All seems to have gone very quiet.

Very quiet indeed Quasar2548. I was thinking the same thing. They give no timescale to talent poolers just a recurring "we're still interested" but not enough to make you an offer.
Hopefully it's just a logistical problem in the training department.

From what I know, we are going through our own FO's who are eligible and giving them first crack at the whip. Once we have all those done we will know how many are required in addition.

Thank you Johnny. Would you have any idea of numbers/time scale? Any info would be a bonus.

Im guessing things could possibly roll over into next winter if there are enough internal upgrades passing the mark.
If they didnt have enough Capts with the upgraders then Im sure they would have notified the external candidates by now for the summer season.There must be many more in the hold pool than they need.
Time is running out as last courses are probably April for this season, so perhaps 2 mths left to hand in the 3mths notice.
How long does the hold pool validity last before having to start again?

From the latest fleet update:
~180 additional flight crew for next summer.
Courses booked up until Feb 18.
66% of LHS requirement coming from internal upgrades. Likely to increase in future years.

Bare in mind, the company is moving away from cramming recruitment/training into the winter period and is keeping things going all year round now.

Ok thats sounds more positive ,so perhaps a little light at the end of the tunnel running into the summer even.
Is Stansted developing into more than just a holiday package expansion then?Are they going to look to sell seats all year round in direct competition with FR and EZ?
I saw an article recently(October) with just one passenger on a flight to Crete.I think that was in the UK school holidays period too. Perhaps they will be very seasonal ,as in Summer only. Is it summer 2019 expansion that will require training through the whole of 2018?

That was the last outbound flight of the year Glasgow to Crete so would be very low on pax.

This is quite a normal end or beginning of season phenomena. I can well remember taking around 320 punters to Heraklion at the beginning of the season and bringing less than 10 back in a DC-10.

As I understand it, they are hoping to cover all of their captain requirements via internal upgrade this year. They're keeping people floating in the pool, just in case.

I think you understand it incorrectly, there aren't sufficient internal candidates to cover the numbers required, so there are a good number of DEC's required.

Well that is good news Johnny. I was Simply reiterating what I had heard. I think with the lack of news coming from the company, rumours are bound to grow legs. Sorry if I have passed on bad information. It seems a shame that more information cannot be disseminated by the company.

Thanks flying wild. I had read that, but the information I got was more current. Less accurate, it seems, but more current, so I just wanted to put it out there. Thankfully it seems to be incorrect. Hopefully things begin to move soon.

I can assure you that the information I provided was as current (a week or so now), and as provided to the line pilots from management. If your source claimed to have more up to date information...

Exactly flying wild, that's why I emphasised "less accurate".
