I heard 15%, again supposedly straight from the horses mouth.



Correct!

Planned was 20% from basic; --reduction of housing allowance.

Now it will be 15%; housing allowance remains (10k F/O, 12K CPT)


Not sure if it will pe postdated to APR 09;--I rather doubt--, but you will
be surprised when checking your next payrole.

(Yes, I know!--Still one week before christmas)

great way to describe QR

it not only highlightes the interview process at QR but it also describes our day to day dilemma at either the technical or the towers building.
When I am ask what qatar is like from now on from our friends that want to join here I will send them this video...

funny

6% buffer in the number of pilot..so no need for salary increase..hmmm...
Well yes today they bring pilots in Doha as soon as they got one on the market,(so scared he/she might have a look elsewhere...) let him.her enjoy his/her live in doha for a couple of months doing nothing (as there is no simulator slot available..).
So No wonder we don't have increase if on the other hand the company has to pay people for months doing nothing...

If you really want to attract new guys today with famiky and make them STAY, i think the company should do something with:
-Pension fund and/or end of service benefit.
-education allowance
-Seniority reward....(salary increase up to 5 years seniority only doesn't make sense),introducing seniority in bidding system..?
..

Hi, Is Qatar Airways that desperate to find pilots? I sent my application a month ago, called them, they confirmed that I was in the system but so far no sign from them. I have way more than the mini requirement
So what's going on in Qatar

Can someone explain to be what is an XTBN. Is it the same as a Standby, or, if you do not get called by the start of that day - then you have the day off?

Any references to point to?

Cheers

Although you will not find it written anywhere, I have been advised by people in the training department that it means the following:

XTBN is - To Be Notified (no idea why they put an X before it).
You have not been allocated any duty on that day, however you can be called for duty as long as they notify you before 10PM the previous night.

Therefore it is not the same as Standby.

"Max days off.."?..you mean MINIMUM....Agree that in Q.R. those days unfortunatly the minimum becomes the maximum ..(days off... rest....),thats the way they think here..but it shouldn't..
Because As far as i known there is no rules regarding Max days off!

Unfortunatelly,

in this company,that pretends to be a 5 star airline,even if there are plenty of pilots and the bidding system will give you more then 8 days off because all rotations are covered they will just remove the days off and put either a STBY or XTBN....why???
Because they are IDIOTS....they are loosing all the good pilots,the one able to find a better job.
Why AAB doesn't realize the image and the economical damage the crewing dept is doing to the company???

All this stress for no reason....until...something will happen...

and **** happens....

NOF

"we ""can not"" allocate more than 8 days off"....yes sure.....
Lets not be naive..
-Cabin crew can have their STBY or TBN turn into days off so they can enjoy 5..6 days off in a row!!(true story).
-For Cockpit crew its just the opposite: you bid for days off they will give you STBY instead....
Does it make sense....?

Vaschandi:"you will be surprised when checking your next payrole"

Hi Guys,

Sorry to go back to a previous question, is all recruitment now for the A320 only? Heard rumours of being stuck on the 320 for 3 years before being entitled for a fleet transfer.

Just want to know if I am wasting their time going for an interview.

Cheers

"Heard rumors of being stuck on the 320 for 3 years before being entitled for a fleet transfer." Insha'Allah!

But if you get some friends at the management department you can jump a bunch of drivers.
seniority list it's a joke
