Not to sure on the details of that Beyblade; however, something is going on.

Nut its very easy for things to be covered up here.... very hush hush just like the murders at Ain Kahlid a little whiles ago...... diidnt even make the papers.... typical. (if you dont know about it, then I am not going to elaborate on here).

Just be aware, that if things were not "positive" news events etc etc, then dont expect it to get out fast unless somebody with balls who knows the details makes it public. sad fact about this place.

PilotofDoha, yes you got that one right with the kg allowance, more factual postings like that and i'll actually consider you helpful; lol :-)

February Update

It has been a complete JOKE that Qatar Airways NEVER manages to send the updates on time. They promise us November, we get it in December, they promise us July, we get it in August.. They tell us 'Our next planned update will be in February 2013' and on the last day of February..nothing has arrived once again. It's becoming a JOKE!

Disagreeable, I am confused , did you say one can sponsor his wife immediately or only once he has his RP?
Also, what kind of timeframe for training on wide body one can expect? And roughly whats involved, company ground courses, type rating, sims, etc.
Lastly, murders in Ein Kahlid? Its not that big of a compound, is it? I will be bringing small kids...

Up grade?? 777-787

Hi, I am new here but want to ask any 777 guys...

I tried to make new thread but somehow it doesn't work. So here I am!

Anyone here is keen to share some thoughts regarding 777-787 upgrade...

Should I do it or not...??

What is the hidden cost?

Well all the same

I haven't been visiting long time but looks all the same

Rumors about a murder in Doha committed by a qr pilot - as usual nobody comments, as usual put under the carpet

Now everybody has to do an aptitude test, surprisingly and give their actual address

Well qr was the first airline, where I'd didnt do a psycho test, will be interesting with what they come up now

Rumors about housing allowance increase, believe it when u have it on your pay check

And don't forget, the csd/cs is the boss of the aircraft, do not interfere, otherwise u r out

Training upside down because of 787 grounding, cannot blame them actually, all plans crossed.

Rents increasing in Doha again, what to do, like our beloved fellows say

Newspaper announcing 3 per cent inflation, what a non sense, prices went up a lot, especially for schools and food, but no the country is so shiny, 5 star, just log on in www.********.com it couldn't be simpler

Alliance card was the best we had, now look at the new terms and conditions

And not to forget, your annual leave ticket is not that really confirmed anymore, if the aircraft is overbooked, you have lost

Good luck to all

Changing Times....

Well, if you aren't crazy before you come here, a few months of having to deal with this operation will!

Jeap u r right, after some time, maybe u need some test

Some people need anyway one, whom, I do not comment

Am here long time, some things do not bother me anymore, if they don't want, I don't want, easy, part a is ruling, and what ever anybody tells otherwise, just show it to me, where it is written, that's it, then I believe it, otherwise f*** off.

What to do, most of them, especially in the office, had never a proper management course. So what do u expect?

From this murder I heard some days ago

As I said, as usual put under the carpet, like everything in this country.

Cheers

DOJ

Just to share the info I have.

I called the recruitment office the other day.
She told me that she was about to receive the training plan for the autumn 2013.
Then they will start calling people according to date of the initial interview and so onÖ
I donít know if everyone is concern. But at least Non Rated FO are required.


Best of luck

This is one of the best pages on this thread!
+1

Nice to see that many others know the reality of this place!

The Housing allowance is just a rumour! if they increase the housing allowance then the company housing people will feel left out! So if anything it will be a base salary or extra payment , and then they can remove it at any time.

BUT, if the housing allowance or base salary goes up, so will the rents!!!! U better believe it!

Yes its not as cheap as everyone thinks here. Some things are cheap but where you save is on the Fuel price (27c ltre), no tax (mostly), rent (mostly because of allowance), and taxi's. Thats it.
