Last I heard from the training department was classes starting in Jan 2014. 50/month for a few months then a break. Classes will start up again late fall 2014 and continues indefinitely.

Those guys were correct.

Window open in January 2014 interviews February/March first class April. Should be around 40-50 new hires each month, with breaks during the summer.

Window opens just after Labor Day for interviews in late Sept for classes starting in Nov/Dec. Expect 50/month going forward.

Well, which one is it, or are we just making predictions?

Guess I better not let my airlineapps membership lapse, it hasn't done any good so far. Gotta get my Delta internal recs to work.

What is meant by "window opens"? As far as I'm aware they just pull from their thousands of airline apps folks...

The last time around (2010) SD announced that interviews/hiring would begin, via memo, pretty far in advance of guys actually showing up to class. I can't remember the exact time frame because it was 3 years ago, but we will all have plenty of notice when the start spooling up. I'm remembering 3-4 months, but that could be off by a bit.

I was in for CQ last week and was hearing the same thing - classes running from Jan-May (~50/month). That means they'd have to start interviewing by roughly September I'd think to get thinks going in. That coincides with the 717 and 737-900 deliveries hitting full stride also, so the rumor seems to jive.

It really will be nice when the dam finally breaks and we get some movement. Someone on here recently raised the point that once guys start advancing it requires even more staffing to fly the schedule because a certain % of pilots are in training at any given time. The kind of vicious cycle we all want Hopefully we'll get some good news here in the next few months.

Actually pretty much every airline these days employs significant amounts of "targeted selection". The OP asked about getting hired at DL. A large part of that is fitting in. What you call a "derailment" is actually one of the better answers to the question than you give it credit for.
