Having said that RK..QR is NOT the only airline recruiting 320 pilots.
Only here in the gulf you already have 4 options fort those jobless pilots;QR,AA,EY,EK...

What makes you think than any airline bankruptcy would mean further delays for the hold pool?

Spanair went bust because Qatar Airways cancelled their plans to buy the company. There was obviously some agreements in place to take their pilots.

Spanair went bust because it was in financial ruin..QR decided it was not a wise investment, so they declined.....

Qatar were in talks to buy the failing company. They didn't go ahead so the company went bust.

Spanair leaves passengers stranded after going bust


In those talks there may have been an agreement to interview the workforce.
Seems thier hold pool is pretty full now, so I doubt Qatar will be doing more interviewing in the near future.

Qatar or flydubai

I am in the talent pool for Qatar told i will get an update in November! I have also passed the assessment for flydubai and will have a start date before Christmas. what does everyone think i should do? I am very keen on the long haul fleet but i think flydubai would be better on the short haul

FD

I would go with with which ever airline can put a contract letter in your hands first.
No point in closing your doors with Fly Dubai just to find out that QR wont be taking you after July, Nov or whenever they say they will.

Fly Dubai

Of Course,You should choose Fly Dubai.

You may be removed from Qr deep pools.
Nobady knows what will occur on Qatar's holding pools.
They easily changes their minds,so if I werw you,I will go to Fly Dubai.

I envy you so much.

I would wait until you get a start date with FD, then I would call Q and tell them and ask for a def start date. I would much rather work for Q than FD without a shadow of doubt. On the other hand, can you not apply to Emirates or Etihad ?

Maybe Qr is starting to do what Emirates does, call poolies based on their performance on their interview, and not based on the date that they received their good news or interview date.

Yes i have seen that too on their careers webpage.

And the 40 years old max age when joining.

Seems strange they would only advertise for fast track SO's.......

Hmmmmmm.

Hope they are not too strict on the age either......

Very true- just on their first page it only mentions SFI's and SO's.

Not sure why that is.....

Anyway i will continue swimming in the pool.

Hope to turn up one day in sunny Doha.

POOL??

Hi guys ,
Quick question I interviewed in FEB got my pass email 2 weeks after that and then returned and signed the contract in MAY asking for a DOJ of OCT 2012. I did not get any pool email and I have been able to confirm this from HR that my name is not in the talent pool. Is there anyone in the same situation as me.
Applied F/O direct entry
Fleet A320 assigned .

Thanks
