as metioned above .. NO commuting is not something easily done here at QA. but as mentioend above, you can get home once in a while on days off if you live relatively close, space available of course.. but beware of this. a short time ago I had a gentleman on my aircraft heading for Doha after 2 days off back in his country. unfortunately we took a unexpected delay and he ended up missing his next scheduled flight and was terminated never to be seen from again.

it is not so easy to commute here.

as far as A330 schedules.. busy. you can expect 60 to 90 hrs per month. 8 days OFF per month ( non consecutive). some days OFF out-stationed ( i.e. on layovers) many long to medium layovers, vast route structure.

if you come to this place, ( think twice) expect that your expected to live, eat, sleep for this airline.. your days OFF are not respected.. work, work and more work, thats why your here.. so "Just Do It" as the Nike slogan says... but when it comes to this airline they left out the.. "And Shut Up".. part of that.
