Probably won't help you, but here goes.

Do you have the right to work in the United States?

Do you have a minimum of 1500 hours in turbine powered airplanes, or 2500 hours total time in airplanes.

Do you have a minimum of 1000 hours of PIC time in turbine powered airplanes.

If so, go to Southwest.com

Hiring window just opened, looking for 250 pilots starting this summer.

True. it probably wont.

I seriously doubt that SWA will be looking at the European P2F English as a second language brigade as a viable resource to fill their employment requirements.

American regional airlines produce experienced and qualified pilots en mass to move into legacy slots. Nice to see it finally once again happening the way it used to.

SWA will have absolutely no problem attracting an overwhelming number of local and appropriately qualified candidates to fill only 250 openings.

Note: one doesn't need the 737 rating to interview although it has to be acquired prior to employment.

No the case anymore. They did away with that requirement recently. They will type you in training now.

1000 hrs on type, if you have a degree and EASA licence you could try Turkey as an FO if you are under 32 years old. The other chap with no hours would really be considered as "non-typed" as a rating without hours is not much use these days. At 34 the thread starter is too old for an FO position in Turkey ( exception ex Turkish Military ). All metro liner time is not regarded as suitable in many companies. Best bet I would have thought is apply as a non-rated to some companies in Europe and take a chance, NAS for instance..always looking for 737 FOs and also Ryanair , the rating is not completely wasted as you may be ahead of the learning curve, but in real terms they would consider you as non-typed and a bond or stump up of cash would be needed practically everywhere.

So my question is, where are the airlines getting their B737 F/O's from
I know the airline that I fly for has recruited many FO's onto the B737 this last few years, and will do so again next year. The majority have been non type rated coming predominantly from regional airlines. We have had people from Lion Air too before anyone asks. As for why you haven't heard back from them when you applied, I have no idea, you need to apply via the website when the recruitment section is open, then sit with your fingers crossed.

mohammedRR try this https://www.allflyingjobs.com/pilot-...iews_fulltext=
as you can see there are some interesting opportunities to upgrade to widebody but many fo jobs in asia are for A320. Strange lion air doesn't show on that search.
