Very competitive OTS field. Military, Cathay, ANA, ME, Westjet, Sunwing...

Some deep backgrounds in a few of the Express new hires too, but also lots with 2.5 years at Jazz as their only job. I hope those newbs "literally have goosebumps and tears of joy." Jeezus...

They don't pfo you after 4 months? Lots of guys and girls (?) waiting since mid summer with no news other than "be patient, we will let you know once we make a decision". Seems to me that some might be PFOed after 4 months.

I was under the impression that PFO are sent out in 6-8 weeks after the completion of the interview. If not you are just waiting for ground school date

We have pfod candidates after 4-6 months. I don't agree with this practice but it's been done. As recently as last week infact but that was partly due to other circumstances surrounding the candidate.

I guess it is still no news good news until you get the answer right.

I believe calls went out for a number of classes just before Christmas (up to Feb 17 if I understand correctly) if this is the case, can we expect a delay for the March 9 class calls, or could these be coming soon(ish)?

Just throwing it out there to see if anyone has any info.

Cheers,

34 new hires starting next Monday, mostly jazz with some OTS. Will be picking OTS hiring to cover wideboy FO spots (looking for previous widebody experience)

Feb 17th class should have about the same number of new hires.


Not sure when calls are going out for march, if i were to take an educated guess, it would be next week.
