Really....? Well V/S Euro there is no sign of cycle at all yet.... Indeed since the creation of Euro (2002), the dollar NEVER stops going down v/s euro for the last 7 years almost...Not really what i call a cycle.., unless it has a very very very long Period.... Since i joined Q.A. my salary has been devaluated by more than 40%!!!! Slowly but surely if think continues to deteriorated like that,iīm really start thinking of going back home ....Enough is enough.

Read the other day on reuters a comment of S&P's. Apparently the sub prime mortgage write downs are over and with the bailout of major financials in the wall street recovery should be somewhere next year. My bet goes to re-value of QAR. It's currently undervalued by about 30%.
They are more Prompt and fast to increase the price of a barrel of oil(on a daily basis almost, in order to save their own interest to compensate the crash of the U$,make sure they donīt loose anything..).....than revaluate the QR or increase our salary to ease the pain of all the expats working for them!! But is anybody really surprised by this kind of attitude...Welcome to Qatar..
US greenback is diving no end in sight. Oil is soaring one of main reasons is vast money flow into commodities as safe heaven from depreciating US $. Todays paper says Qatar is losing immense amount of money due to fix rate. Dear CEO let your fantasy fly otherwise your planes won't.
One of my colleague told me he recieved from reliable source() that Q.A. is gone increase the salary in April... Probably Q.A is soo desperated that they just continue to agitate carrots in front of the nose of the crews!(when i see my salary in a continious free fall+ inflation+......)
You can expect all to look pink to you and big salary and low coast of living ,nice big airplanes and fast upgrade . BUT BE ALERT ITS AL LIES ! 1) 8 y to upgrade as per actual 2)You can be terminated for drinking orange juce 3)mistreated by cabin crew with no respect abd back up by CEO 4)No salary increament + 15 % inflation rate 5)Memos like NOT ALOWED there is about 100 ot them 6}Did you saw Doha ?
If it was the only stupid think here, Q.A would be a great airline.........!But...to be more precise as far as i knowm the famous "fresh" orange juice on board is dedicated to the first and/or business class passenger(the only think Q.A cares) and not for the crew(Q.A. doesnīt care at all)...But honestly i can live with this "orange juice rule" ... In my opinion,There is much more important issues here:salary devaluation,inflation,roster,..Doha..,if it continue like that(in a very short term) believe me people Wonīt be able to live with it!(some people are already preparing to leave,because they canīt afford to stay here,Welcome To Doha!).
B-737..."breaking news..": No salary increase..but it seems that now we have a special dedicated fresh orange juice bottle for cockpit crew on board....When i think that i was going to resign in the near future, this great news for sure will change my mind...
Guyzzz,,, its harsh for us.... minimum rest in layovers and no rest on osaka flight. ive experienced it... almost 11 hours 30 min, we dont have the right to close our eyes.. if u do so, you are called to the office and may be TERMINATE..
