Even maestro Greenspan is crying out loud to the ME central banks drop the peg to US & that's something..............
Guess what's the response from ME- UNLIKELY TO HAPPEN SOON
Right, let me see instead of doing it the way it's proven to be the most efficient one NO NO NO they will forbid the business to import from EU and push them to buy from China.
So guys prepare to drop the paints you'll get diarrhoea from fake Chinese beef. Flash it with lots of holy water. Let it burn till nothing to digest.
This is on statuary level what the hell to expect on company one?
We will let 2 bed once stay empty cause senior folks don't want it and pay housing allowances on top. No problems QR is proud to waste money.
How about QR gives us double housing allowance which it effectively pays so we can rent a little tiny villa in the west bay? The cash is gone anyway.
Wait a sec I'm wrong, some of you will say, we do packs off take offs and flap 3 landing nowadays thus we do save money.
NOT IF YOU FLY 25 NM WITH FLAPS 3 MY FRIEND.
Anyhow I rest my case as far as brainpower and efficiency concerns.

Please do park a little closer along the tech building so that everyone can fit in. I rephrase don't leave a gap of half size of your car please. Thanks.

Don't take it personally take it on the rocks!!!

IAH flights announced

IAH flight has being announced recently something like QR proudly announces launch of IAH flight none stop longest flight ever to compete with SQ on the route to JFK. The flight is predicted to go for 17 hours. Out of curiosity how is that possible DT wise? I presume the layover will be 24 hrs like EK goog luck to 777 drivers. What a nightmare if you ask me, jeez
They pretend 777 is gonna be a premiere league, makes me laugh.
Forget it boys take your lazy Qatari boys and their maids.

It´s good to think about new flight and routes..but for that.. you need crew.. and if this company doesn´t think about doing something about salary problem(inflation,currencies..)..i doubt people will be willing to come here to work, plus the ones who are going to resign in the near future for the same problem..

I had to justify 500kgs of fuel the other night. The attitude of the dispatcher was one of "I make your fuel decision for you!!". Looks like I'll be grazing on the "greener grass" on the other side of the fence as well in the near future.

same same captain. Don't care what this kids wet behind the ears are trying to achieve. Fuel is mine and it stays so. Feel with the dispatchers. They've being brainwashed by this jerks believe they decide upon how much to uplift. Guys you fall short of even 100 kg divert let this kids bite the dust.

Cool Dear mom

Doha 1st of march 2008
Dear mom

I know it was my choice to join the international workforce in this dusty dynasty.
People here think I am very rich and every month they want more and more of my money.
My manager says he doesn’t give a shit and he will not give me more money. I can just go home if I don’t like the bakery. However, before going home I have to pay back all the money he thinks I own him.
Please mom sends me some money otherwise; I will never get out of this jail.
Tell dad that I will pay him back when he is very old.

Son

Danger Dear mom and dad.......

Spirit1 ,


that must be one of the funiest posts I have seen here in a long time....

Unfortunately it is the harsh reality, the unconvenient truth of living and working for QR.

As a matter of fact, I might just use your letter as a template to send my folks....

Re-evluate ....maybe!

De-peg....Never!

The love hate relationship between this region and uncle sam is too solid for that! Remember that in case of Qatar their whole defense system is provided by the Americans ( besides the small part of the French with 7 Mirages and some other things).

Besides that, somebody brought up the fact in one of the EK treads that those in power of countries like Qatar do not really care if there is inflation or not, they do not care about dollar-euro exchange rates as their assetts are all very well protected outside the country!

So they rather keep a good political relationship with the states iso stepping on their toes just to deal with inflation and purchasing powers of the labourers ( YES, YOU AND ME AS WELL)

Lets wait and see...

Revaluate: NO!!!

""Qatar has NO intention to revaluate its currenecy or Delink it with the U$ dollar central bank announced...countrary to some news printed yesterday in some press......."
I´m a little "worried" about the future of Qatar Airways(and Qatar) if the management continue to deny this MAJOR problem...what do they think..that people are gone continue to stay or come here if situation continues to deteriorate like that....no way!
OOPS in the mean time Qatari riyal has plunged to a new low record following his fellow friend:the U$.....

A different prickly money question

Would anyone care to comment about the profitability of investment with the Doha Securities Exchange?

What percentage stock appreciation since the market opened to foreigners?
Have many foreign investors lost money?
Have many Qatari investors lost money?

DSM woudn't touch it.

B.S. heard a lot of folks lost whole lot of cash.
Don't think it's over yet. There's lots of issues to consider but the main one is non-transparent rules. In other words the market is controlled by few cash loaded folks and brokers will keep your orders on hold simple cause you're a small fish. Long term wouldn't touch it either. You're better off trading on NYC emerging markets ETF's containing among the others ME companies.
Same fate will befall the property market as the prices are totally blown up by speculative money locals pulled out of DSM and pumped into Pearl of Qatar.

Don't take personally take it on the rocks!!!
