I've heard all types will get the new paint except the Dash 8-100s. In terms of the rate act which it'll happen, I'm guessing whenever they are going in for heavy checks.

I seem to recall there being a choice, but if you say you are fluent in French, you had to answer at least 1 french question.

It's been a while since I completed the interview, so my recollection of events may be foggy.

Looks like courses planned for the next little while:

04 Dec: 32 new hires

08 Jan: 40

29 Jan: 40

19 Feb: 40

12 Mar: 30

02 Apr: 30

23 Apr: 30

14 May: 30

I assume more after this but no firm plans. Looks like a solid plan for 272 new hires before summer
