@upwhereibelong

congrats mate...

by the way a quick question--- the contract mentioned to you has it changed (deduction of type rating and line training)??? or is it the same one as earlier...

thanks,

First of all I don't think we will be given any fleet choice (thinking in a practical way). And even if we are getting then why do you want to go for A330?? go with the A320. You will learn a lot in that. Personally i do love the A330. But, from learning point of view (as an NTSO)-- I would go for A320. Short flights, things happening quickly.....
But just be ready to work hard...

That's true, But you read about 320, sounds like a disaster ... For me i take whatever they offer..

But choosing between 320, 330, 777 and maybe 787, tough decision !!

Who said we don't have a choice.............

i can't comment on the A320 disaster thing. I know there is a lot of work load on that fleet. U R RITE!!! But me being an NTSO- personally I wouldn't complain about it. Because there are lots of Senior Captains/FO's on that fleet and if they are not given any rest then who am I (NTSO) to ask for... !!!!!!
Indeed, we will take what we are offered IA!!!!

No documents needed besides passport copies.
Just sign it and send it back to them before the limit date. As the package says all the documents will be sent later or delivered personally on your DOJ.

Nice landings

Personal Aviation Headset

For those already flying for QR here is a quick question. Am I allowed to bring my own aviation headset for personal use in the flightdeck? Or do I have to use the one provided in the aircraft? Thanks.

Spanair guys seem to be getting offers much quicker and also getting sims much quicker.......... for good reason, business wise..... they are all type rated and experienced and require minimum training (on paper that is).

So be patient i guess, and for those waiting that are here,,,,,, be more patient
LOL

That was my initial concern Cat3BNoDH. Looks like I will have to carry a pack of alcohol wipes instead, since it seems like I am not allowed to bring my own headset into the flight deck.

Tinga, my dear friend,
Despite what's beeng said on this forum, QR is not a LCC. There are plenty of wet wipes in the cockpit to calm down your hygiene worries!
Cheers!

Yes you can bid for all of the above and more. Depends how busy your fleet is as to what you get. Usually you'll get something though. It all done through 'lido' bidding system.
Would the USA flights be considered a senior bid, or a would those trips go junior?
