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.

US is nearly in rescission, i would not expect the dollar to be doing well. Seems like Mr Bush F ed it up nicely for us. I would guess a year or so (but once again i am not economy expert)

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%.

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

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.

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...

If you are QR cabin crew and KIX -DOH take 1259 min you can not sleep or have rest . If you do it and someone report you you will get TERMINATED by Salia Snake or AAB.
