Age has nothing to do with it outside of having a long career at a better airline. Of course, now that is not really possible in the near future. If you are out of work then go with whoever will hire you.

I'm not sure if AJX is going to be doing any hiring for a while. We don't have enough flying right now to finish people who are currently in training.

That's funny. There basically is no AJX anymore. We have all been terminated. There might be recalls sometime after April 2022 but who knows.

We had gone through so many situations where I thought the contract was going away, the world economy collapse of 08, Swine Flu. SARS, the JAL bankruptcy and of course the earthquake/Tsunami/Fukushima trifecta and although things got dicey, ANA always assured us that AJX was forging forward. This time I really didn't think much of Covid quite frankly but it certainly was disastrous for the market in Japan.

Also as jrmyl mentioned, the contract is gone and if they ever recall (and this is a big if) it will be a very different contract and company than the one we worked for. A few of us have gotten lucky and got jobs in the US but many of our friends are still looking.

Good luck to everyone on these difficult times...

US job market in cargo sector still going strong, FedEx UPS, and other ACMI carriers are hiring. For those of you have time in heavy should have no problem getting a job. Good luck for everyone here.

Yeah, As I said some of us have been fortunate enough to find gigs back home and those that haven't are actively applying to those gigs you mentioned. But that doesn't help about 70% of Air Japan pilots since they don't have the "right of work" in the US. Tough times no doubt
