Default Combined 2011 Hiring Info

Everyone, thought I'd start a thread where we can all combine what we know about hiring info at the majors for 2011. Any information is welcome, but please state if you're making a guess, heard a rumor, have substantiated information, etc. I'll post below what I understand the status to be, please update it with whatever additional details you may know... dates, numbers, when they'll be accepting applications, what they're looking for, etc.

Delta: Possible hiring early 2011. No idea how many.
USAirways: Possible hiring 2011. No idea how many.
United: No hiring for foreseeable future.
Continental: No hiring for foreseeable future.
American: No hiring for foreseeable future.
Southwest: ???
Fedex: ???
UPS: No hiring for foreseeable future.

I have been told by Fedex Corporate CP that they are hiring to fill the seats that are left from the flow-throughs going to the freight side. I'm assuming the hiring at FedEx Cargo will be done in 2011 since they are looking at hiring now on the corporate side of things. Don't know if that helps or not.

BTW..... Great Thread!

I heard from a senior CA @ SWA that they were going to hire 200 in 2011, but that 180 were already in the pool.

And the other 20 will be internal hires (sim instructors, etc). Best guess on off the street is for 2012. Not sure if that means hired late 2011 for a 2012 class but 2012 should be interesting.

Is there anywhere that lists the projected retirements for all the majors in the upcoming years?

I've been out of the airline loop for a while so I have no idea where this is, or if the data has even been published.

I have several friends @ DAL that have told me that in something like 2017 there will be a lot of scheduled retirements for 5 years or so
