Is there any possibility for a320 type rated FO to be assigned to another fleet after successful interview? I have heard a320 roster of QR is extremely heinous.

A friend told me, there was a goat lost in JFK yesterday (July 4th). Probably a training flight.

General Info

For those of you wondering about NTR FO. I went into Flightdeck Recruitment last week asking about a friend of mine who is trying to get an interview (He is NTR for QR fleet). They told me that they do not expect to open up NTR FO interviews until next year, but that was only an estimate.

As for those applying for A320. Rosters have been getting better. There is hope on the horizon. This month average is around 70-75hrs and 120-140 duty hours (STBY/Reserve Days inclusive) and 10days off.

I don't know anything about the plans for SO's.

Good luck to all those applying and interviewing.

Ciao, did you have the ADAPT test? 2 weeks ago Qatar managment did a meeting with crews member, they reported that in the next 5 year they will need 2000 pilots and they are changing the rules to upgrade FO to Cpt position, they will set 2 years from First Line Ck in Qatar fleets...no bed! Do you know in wich plane this pilot will start in August and wich is the caming plane?

Living the dream ...one nightmare at the time!
But bit of a bold conclusion considering QR is constantly hiring DEC!

Why are you so concerned who gets interviewed or hired first? Any company in the world will do what it deems best for itself. So stop complaining about things that don't concern you. And by the way, Putting people's names on a public forum is not cool.

Anytime a big group of pilots becomes unemployed QR will do their best to hire them and will place them in front of anyone else waiting to join, or even people who are in the company doing their training. e.g. ex Spanair, Bahrain Air pilots. When these companies went bankrupt their pilots were interviewed immediately and offered start dates ahead of those already waiting.
