Schooling Allowance

Hi,


How Qatar Airways Pays the Schooling Allowance? Monthly, Yearly, or based on invoice?


Thanks,

Leo = Based on invoice. There is a max amount one can claim - QR105k and is not dependent on number of children.

@flyboy...depends but seems to be 6 weeks to get contract then 6 weeks to start..maybe longer maybe shorter.
@leo 28... The school is for up to 3 kids from ages 4-21.
Max payout is 105000 and only covers tuition, and registration fees etc.

Could you please clarify that the education allowance up to the age of 21 includes full time university education also.

As far as I known,The limitation for school allowance is based on age only ( 21 max), regardless of the type of education/ school ( college ,university, high school..).

I have one daughter in the university in the USA and that has not been a problem other than last time receipt broke down her charges....there was something listed other than registration/ tuition but a legitimate charge to be enrolled in school, and they denied that as it was not "tuition".
As far as I know they will not cover books, uniforms, transportation, etc...

While there is great room for improvement....and some horror stories, most seem to be dealing with the cabin crew. Reading the forum really makes Qatar sound bad, and I agree that where there is smoke there is fire, but my one year here has been a mostly positive experience, and I really dont find many of my fellow pilots complaining too much. No matter where you work, pilots Bit_h, and here is the same, but no more or no less, and most seem to be content. I think there is a much better roster on the 777 vs 320 etc so that may make some difference.

I think they are currently screening 777/787 first officers. As I mentioned earlier I know 2 people in initial training on 787 and neither of them have Boeing background, yet were hired directly into 787. I think that trend will continue as many of the airbus pilots here would prefer to wait for the arrival of the 380/350 than change to the darkside.

Did the interview with QR 3 weeks ago. Boeing DEC Widebody. No news since. Anyone know how long that takes for an answer or is anyone still waiting?
Thanks....

This is not scientific.. But generally speaking bad news travels faster than good.
I would say that after 3 weeks it is much more likely to be good
