I think you are right. Frontier is definitely trying to be optimistic about a demand rebound, but the 300 i heard does seem very optimistic.

My flights today were sold out though which is nice

Not to mention most of the scuttlebutt coming from recent RGS has indicated a return to hiring wonít happen until the latter half of the year. Hiring 300 would necessitate six straight months of the most robust hiring weíve ever seen. Ainít gonna happen.

they built up schoolhouse capacity last year to handle 2 classes a month. Doubtless thatís taken a hit over the last year, but they could ramp back up.
I think 2021 hiring is really about 2022. If signs are of a robust rebound then weíll hire to be in a position to capture that growth. The lag from interview for hitting the line is 4 plus months; I think we remain in a very good position, and will present an attractive career choice..

For those on the outside looking in...

Someone on the FB pilot page posted a form response sent to a friend who recently sent their stuff in. It went to the tune of "Thank you for applying yada, yada, yada. Frontier anticipates the next hiring window to resume in February." This was obviously an auto response, but it's the most definitive thing I've seen or heard of to date regarding actual hiring intentions. This is, of course, for interviewing. Actual class dates may not necessarily come right away. At this point though, even an interview and a CJO would be good news for those needing to find employment.

Take it FWIW.

That seems reasonable to me.

Frontier is definitely trying to get the fleet back flying. They denied a ton of monthly leave requests. They clearly intend to ramp up the flying
