disagreeable Did you knew the FO, do you know his name and on which fleet he was? What was the reason he killed himself? Have you seen any proof etc.
You are among those who just believed in stupid rumours and then enjoy spreading it. There is a rumour is that FBI is involved in the investigation so how come they are quite about it. Do you think money can make them stop the investigation or stay quite, if it was Doha Police i might have believed you that there could be a possibility but FBI i dont think so.
Bring one proof and i will believe you otherwise If you dont then i think its not wise to spread such rumours.

Dear all,
Sorry for the off-topic, I found no better place to ask my question.

I wanted to know are Qatar Airways flight attendents able to choose or vote for their destinations? Maybe to see their relatives.

I appreciate your answer.

I'm sorry but on this issue you are wrong! (Re: F/O)

Unfortunately it is very much true, and I know someone who was interviewed by the FBI as part of their investigations. So it is not bullsh@t...

I'm not gonna write the guys name on a public forum so don't ask me to, but you can rest assured this isn't one of the bullsh@t rumours you hear...
As to why you haven't heard about it in the news, come on this is Qatar hardly the Mecca of media freedom.

Rumour has it this is why the PAT tests were introduced, wether that's true or not I don't know

Just a quick question that I would appreciate help with. Is Qatar no longer accepting applications for First Officers due to the size of the holding pool? My account seems to have been deleted (wanted to update) , and I can't find any FO openings on the career site.

Hi all.. Request a bit of info. Does anyone know if QR has any non poaching agreements with other airlines? It means that if you are from X airline and you want to join QR you cant! Its going around... For eg Emirates and Indigo pilots cant join QR.
Is this just a rumour? And even if its true do you guys think if a pilot who has a joining date with QR, leaves such an airline, serves the whole notice period, gets the NOC (No Objection Certificate) and reports to QR to join that QR will still decline them????
A friend of mine is in such a predicament..
Any thoughts on this??

that's right Ironbutt,

"Anyone can fly a round airplane". My crosswind landings are better today because of that plane, LOL !!!

so seriously, does IR mean 'Instrument rating" or 'Instructor rating' or what?

actually I have a bigger fish to fry, but just checking every detail, thx !!

Yes it does mean Instrument Rating and you receive that after completing a License Skill Test (LST). You will have to complete a type rating course/conversion course to get it.

Guam - with your 747 background I am surprised Emirates or that other large UAE airline hasn't picked you up. At QR I would look for a DEC position if I were in your shoes. EK would still be my top choice in the region.

Good luck!

I would have to say you need to click yes to qualify....if you are type rated and captain on 747 you have to have it! An FAA ATP doesn't specifically say IR but that is included and a requirement to hold ATP privileges.

thanks casa,
yes I assumed so. yes, we all have it if we are flying airplanes for a living, but having it on the application questionnaire part and then asking about it here, seemed a bit odd. finally Iver mentioned a LST, which I have no idea what it is. so I must not have it, if it is a GCC thing, or I am missing something.

what have 1000's of pilots done in the past, this cannot be so ambiguous.
