I appreciate your sentiments but those were not the questions. I would however add, you are totally right.

Sergi let me "correct" nr 9:
9. i think meal allowance has NEVER been really "adjusted" to the local currency expecially for europe layover after the huge devaluation of the riyal v/s euro the last ..4..5 years(-40%..).(allowances paid in riyal).

Enough threads on related subjects, with regards to Qatar Airways recruitment.

Use the current ones running, or they get binned.....

Please forgive me my sarcasm, but I am glad you asked about the English test!

Maybe you should start working on that one first....

You are becoming a noisy seagull 515.

Loyalty? Loyalty to profession? Loyalty to peers? Loyalty to thy master? Loyalty can twist with time without you even realizing. Did Goering regret his loyalty at Nuremberg?

I didn't jump ship, but I thought about it. I gave three months notice and paid the bond even though I had not signed when trained. Why did I pay? The GMFO asked with a "please"; good manners earns respect. And as he said, "they will just take it from you anyway".

In almost every respect Goat Management are nasty, and the response on this forum merely reflects that. The age of hidden exploitation is over. I do not know of a single compatriot considering The Goat. If one does turn up then he has missed out on EK and EY, so be kind to the poor fellow.

And have you ever considered 515 that your peers see exactly opposite what you see in the mirror? Ponder that on several levels.

A friend missed out on EK 2 years ago for an FO position but he is now an 320 DEC with QR.

This is directly from him that he would take an FO slot with EK than a Capt position with QR anyday.

Qatari515

Qatari 515 what are you talking about ? Jump ship and not being loyal and manipulationg the system ??? maybe you have desert flu !
Who is manipulation system ?? Rostering with rules like climatazed and unclimatazed in India , new bond system its ok for new but bad for seniors , B.W and I.M can jump DEC to A330 but want to stop transferes as it cost money , CEO who press his own capt top brake the rules of part A by forcing crew to fly with knife in cabin , terminations without valid reasons , you have to report fit by 20 h for next day as if you are Dr , senior Capt cant get villa becaouse CEO told him to add money but new Capt gets it , people get failed on intervew for not knowing why the sky is blue , that ACN has more restriction then Alcatraz .
Yea its not fair to jump ship tell me about it !!!!
O dont forget if you be fair and resign youre salary is frozen for 3 months and you cant leave desert on off days . Qatari 515 is that normal in place where you come from ?becaouse if it is then i understand why you like Q.A . ha ha

Qatari515 thats a bit irresponsible to tell people to expect to save $5400pm The only way a married couple could do that is if they have two incomes, no kids, and live in accommodation that costs only half what the company gives them. How many villas are out there now for under 6000pm? Why are you selling so hard such miss-leading stories?

I have to ask; who or what is the "king of katamites"? you guys refer to. (I'm guessing QA CEO). Does anyone know what that's about?. It seems he's pretty unpopular on these forums, why is that?
