A320 roster

Can anyone here tell how many nights per month do A320 guys spend at home in Doha?

What are the most frequent layover locations, and how long are rest times?

...depends entirely what you ask for. If you want to fly to Europe then expect layovers. Similarly with "exotic" destinations such as Africa and Maldives. If being in Doha overnight is important then bid for places like Athens, Istanbul, Luxor, Tripoli, Erbil and the regional shuttles. Random Indian layovers and night turnarounds cannot usually be avoided though.....

...can be as little as none or as many as eight. Expect average 22 to 26 hours off down route. Some days off at certain destinations on certain days of the week....
Hope this helps

There is an 'intranet' with that info, for company personals! if you know someone, then they might share it with you. Most of this info in available through 'myapps' application just in case you are with QR already!
hope it helps. even though they might list the discounts, I have found better deals else where! except for money transfer, insurance and bank discounts, I have not benefited from any other deals, including car rentals or purchases. You are better off waiting for a special and then you will get the deals!
Good Luck!

I don't know if there are specific captain privileges with regard to discount, I think all pilots are entitled to the same discounts. There are some pretty good deals. I often use budget rent a car, I find that it's the cheapest. And the new health care plan is upgraded and has some allowance for dental and glasses.

Thanks, Light and Variable!

That is very good info. I assume you fly QR 320s. Can you (or anyone here) tell me more about this flight bidding system? (like chances of getting what one bids for, days off in a row, or other useful info...)

Cheers

Hi,

I was wondering what’s new here and I’ve read previous recent posts regarding the famous PAT.
I always though that those horrible brain test were used by airlines to filter ab-initio and get a reason to select a wanabe vs another one,trying to find some kind of natural skills or something…
So just for curiosity, why those test are use on experienced pilots already flying? Should a professionnal pilot having a full time flying job remain sharp on a PAT at any time??
