Please can someone help with these questions; I am early fifties and looking at DEC and have previously done both long and short haul: -

Is the Capts pay the same on all fleets. How much can you expect to take home?

What is the retirement age?

I have 2 teenagers - any info on schools would be appreciated - which are most popular with expat famillies - how do the fees work out and how much is subsidised?

Thanks very much in advance

10K$ - 12K$ without housing

What is the retirement age?
65

In Doha you have the best schools in the Middle East ... Cornell, Carnegie Mellon, Texas A&M ... but of course, not cheap!

Hi Gypsy,

The Captain pay is the same on all fleets, expect a bit more on the 330/777 due to more overnights. Go to this website Qatar Airways jobs, payscales and entry requirements. , the figures are accurate. you can add 1500QR for transport allowance and 400QR for telephone. Taking 80h/month seems to be a good average for the block hour calculation. I let you do the math.

You will be entitle up to a maximum of 105 000QR per annum for eligible children. There are many English school as described by Non Zero.

Good Luck
DD

Dear fellow pilots
What is the best accomodation, the "holiday villas" which you can find here Holiday Villa Hotel Accomodation At Doha, Qatar or "Ain Khalid Gate", sorry no link.
Maybe some of you tried both? Any pro and con?
Thanks
DD

school subsidy

Non Zero and Dream Driver - thanks for your reply to my questions. Just one more if I may ; would they reimburse school fees elsewhere or do the kids have to be at school in Qatar?

Zman to answer your questions:

Bond repayment depends on your rank at joining:

Capt/Fo - Repayment starts from day 1

So/ Fast Track So - Repayment starts from final line check

Housing

Yes you can get much better with the money outside, but they will not let you take the money now. You will have to put your name on the waiting list to leave company accom/ I think the waiting time is around 1yr at the moment but not 100% sure

Fast Track SO

Any idea what the Fast Track SO salary is? There is no mention of it on the website. They only talk about the FO + Captains.
Also how long can you can expect before moving up to FO on the 320?

Hello, is it right that during the process they don't focus too much on the sim as it is most of the time on the A330 and not easy to handle the first time for boeing rated people, my friend had a lot of trouble during him sim session and a little bit concern as it wasn't so good ?

Why they put boeing guys on the 330 sim, they cannot expect from them high standard itcs really tricky if you have to fight with the bird like my friend told me, I hope I'll do better than him.

Thx

If you don't mind. When did you and your friend apply?
When were you and your friend informed of the assessment date?
Did your friend make it?

Confirm both of you applied as F/O.

Cheers.

ie.

$XXXX in your pocket to spend on hookers every month.

Done.
