I was a Feb 08 new hire. Received notice last month that I was removed from seniority list because I didn't return.

I hear some of the guys in the pool in 08 are gettin phone calls to see if they're still interested. Sounds like the recalls are just about done

The only thing I can think of is that they didn't get enough recalls, even from the mandatory and still need pilots to fill the vacancies.

They told us in our management de-briefs during recurrent that there might be some hiring this year based on the number that accepted the recalls...guessing that's what it is.

May of '07 class got recall mandatory letters last week. They were the most senior furloughs. So the furloughs are over as soon as those guys/gals respond either way. Then the hiring would start if the numbers they're lookin for aren't met.

Pilots needed > Pilots on property. Hiring. Then...Pilots needed = Pilots on property.

This is never true. Airlines are always either overstaffed or understaffed, never properly so. I thought you knew this!!
