Could someone be so kind and come up with a list of the things a new joining crew member should have in their luggage before departing to Doha?

I would really appreciate it...

I apologize if it is written somewhere, I didn't find it....(it's a very large thread alltogether).

hi morosuperstar. dont worry if they didnt send any email to you. they are busy... it takes time for them to reply.. the date of joining is tentative. so dont expect that you will join december batch.. once they send medical clearance to you thats the only time that they will advise you the date on joining.. patience.... by the way when is your final interview? when did your recive the congrats email?

morosuperstar,

i havent get the clearance, before.. now i applied again.. and waiting for their email.. my experience was.. when i send them my medicals last april it took one month before they told me i was rejected, because of my scoliosis.. and they wont reply on your email instantly, i always give them a call to know the update.. they are busy people and for us we need to be PATIENT. i know its very hard, its the only thing we can do. you are very fortunate that youre on medical stage now.. most of us are waiting for the congrats email... call them if the medicals is 3 weeks over.. but if your medical certificates are not complete it will took longer... in my case 3 weeks plus 2 weeks and then another 1 week before i get the rejection email on my medicals...

Zvvky and Tired of Being Here

As cabin crew for 8 years with some 5 or so as a senior (purser) with EK airline...it sounds a bit strange this situation.
Firstly 'Tired of being here' after just a month flying is neither very positive nor very enthusiastic, is that all just because one person said 'what are you doing? Get outta here?'.
You say you enjoyed training as it was alot more FUN right? Perhaps you were expecting flying to be just that, alot more fun and less work?
NOTE:
TO ALL THOSE POTENTIALS WHO WANT TO FLY....IT REALLY IS DARN HARD WORK! Those who are scared to or are inclined not to pull their weight, you won't last long. Remember airlines like EK and EY will have on-board assessments during your first 6 months following every flight you do. (Going right up to being a Purser too.) So if you're not up to it and think someone else can do 'your bit' you shouldn't bother wasting their time and money training you in the first place as you won't get a contract offer after the probation.

I agree that 'dealing with the person who grabbed you' is not always easy especially if they are more senior than you, but as I don't know what the situation was all about, maybe there was a reason you haven't explained...moreover the fact that you went straight to report the crew member I'm afraid does not put you in VERY good light with ANYONE. It just goes to show that you cannot confront situations. What will you do if a pax does that to you?
TALKING OF PAX:
I've been held off the ground by a passenger (pax) by my throat, spat at, had broken bottles thrown at me....all sorts of situations...I agree that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, but that's why EK want MATURE crew, even if at 22. To avoid silly childlike 'I'm telling the teacher' type situations which just waste time and energy.

Think about other airlines 'tired', like a low cost, low energy and impact airline and 'Zvvky' please don't suggest EK to someone as immature and un-enthusiastic as 'Tired of Being Here', it's a waste for everyone. Airlines (all) need smiling, genuinely happy to help people FULL of ENERGY.....
Sometimes you need to put on a happy face dispite your own feelings, get in the cabin after a 20 hour shift and still look fab. That's part of the job!
It may seem harsh...but this is nothing compared to what EK management will tell you both on board and off!
This is why during the assessment or interview process, you almost always have a pain in the '#rse' who's provoking everyone, to see how the others' react. Its just a small part of the daily life you'll encounter on board. It's not all silver trays, perfect makeup and layovers to go do what you want. It's more than that. Besides, with the layover times reduced nowadays due to more frequent flights, you'll be lucky to have enough time to shower, sleep and go to local shop before departing. After a grueling flight to Melbourne, EK give it's crew 18 hrs from ARRIVAL to TAKE OFF (not including transfer to/from hotels and pickup 3 hrs prior to departure time). Meaning shower, sleep, a bite to eat, departure!
So no, it's NOT all FUN like at TRAINING COLLEGE!

Hi everyone, wel I made it a final interview. I did not feel that it went well at all Infact I went so blank at one stage I nearly had an outer body experience.

Has anyone out there that is crew ever had a shocking final interview and then been accepted?

hey shiny aviator defne shocking.. you mean only blanks? and wats outer body experience?

to lilywings, the doctors arent sure if i have thalassemia minor but they are suspecting that either i have thalassemia minor or i just have an iron deficiency.. but after i have done my tests i asked the doctor for a report and he told me that everything was fine.. this is because i do a lot of sports so my HB levels are normal.. its just that my red bloods are slightly smaller then normal.. and as you are telling me all aircrafts are pressurized now so the oxygen pressure on earth and in the cabin at high atltitude are almost the same so it should not be much of a prob.. and the doc also told me that people suffering from alpha or beta thalassemia minor adapt really quickly to oxygen fluctuations.. so thalassemia minor is not an issue if your overall physical health is good. thats wat the doctors here think of this situation.. dont know bout the doctors in doha though.. hope that they think in the same way.. anyways they have the final say so lets hope that its positive..

Hey hey,
well my thought went out the window and I could not even come up with very good examples to there questions.

The outer body experience - just a blank moment really...kind of like stage fright!

I kept smiling though....maybe that will get me through!

its going to be ok.. i mean, as long as you dont answer anything stupid or make them feel like you arent capable of this job they wont recline you.. dont worry there are so many of us who dont look like professional cabin crew, yet we have still made it through.. so keep on praying that everything will go on fine good luck..

everyone.....

Good Day!

I am done with my medical, I got some results from my Dr... I undergone x-ray and it is normal...I would like to ask if mild scoliosis would affect my application in case? Do I have to worry about this? QR gave me one week to process my medical and send to them the results via email or fax.

and another thing guys, the question number 7 in the medical that she sent me, says,
" please ensure that the medical exams point 7 as well as your blood group and rhesus is filled out and left blank" what does it mean?

my tentative month of flying to Doha is on January, is it possible?

thank you so much guys...hope to hear from you....

yes you'll have to do the same medicals in doha.. some of the people who have moved to doha already said that they had to do the same medicals again.. and scoliosis, it depends on the degree of the curved spine.. from wat has been said here, if your scoliosis is more then 15 degrees then you'll be rejected.. if you dont know the degree then qr might tell you to get it measured..

Unhappy

I'm getting sick here waiting for my Day of journey confirmation!
I already signed their offer of employment but still waiting for my Visa and ticket. They already delayed the date when I had all my things packed last week. I was supposed to be flying on 13th Dec then, but still no answer since then... and I'm afraid they will delay it again.
Anxiety is killing me, seriously... Here unemployed and eternally waiting, start feeling really bad an tired

Does anyone know if it is normal to receive the Visa and ticket just a couple of days before departure? This is a big problem for me, as I live far away from my departure place...

Thank you Kage Well I spoke to my coordinator about this, and finally now she told me that we will wait until 9th at the latest to get my visa (this is issued by immigration, not Qatar Airways). So, if on 9th they still don't have it, then they will delay my flight Will see what happens...

Hey!

Is there a way to tell what can be an average pay for a cabin attendant in the first 6 months on duty? If anyone who joined recently could PM me or post it here, either way I would appreciate it...

thanks....
