Thumbs up

Applied for the 777/787 Non TR FO by the end of the last month and didn't get any update on my application so far...

3800hs TT, 3000hs on the 737 (2500hs NG, 500hs CL).

Anyone knows how long is it taking to one be offered a screening date ?

Tks

My suspicion is their preference is for type rated applicants. So a screening date will be issued to non-type rated applicants when they run low/out, of type rated ones.

Not sure how many type rated applicants there are sorry.

Thumbs up Thank you...

Hey SIDS n STARS...

Thank you very much for your reply !

I'll be here, patiently waiting for a screening date and, in the meantime, logging some more hours on the 737. Can't complain about that, right ?

Cheers,

December 2013 offered B787 doj as april 2013. Few weeks later received postponement. New doj september 2014. Hope iT does not change again. End may must give 3 month notice to current employer. If iT gets postponed again then i might be out of work. Anyone Any suggestions?

Maybe have a talk with your employer if they are willing to shorten your notice period. And double check with Qatar airways if they might postpone the start date again..
Do you have any idea why they postponed you in the first place?

Hi papi chulo. According to QR doj was postponed due to operational reasons.

I think they may be overstaffed at this instant...but if the airport opens, and we get the 380s followed by 350 soon thereafter, we will have lots of training and movement....it is probably good they are fat on pilots right now because the it will be challenging

Java, not totally true.
Never got more than 10 days off/ month ( 330).
But instead plenty of STBY, without being called.( direct consequence of the above rule I guess).
I would rather be at home with my loved ones rather than sitting in Doha (sometime for almost one week )waiting for a call!

Hello everyone!


I have a question concerning staff tickets.. (sorry to post it here, but I know there are many actual employees reading the forum...). If I have a J class ticket (ID90), departing Doha, show I go to the premium terminal to check in (business class counters), or to the "regular" one? Will I have access to the Lounge?

Thanks in advance!

I'm on 320 and I have more than 10 days off next month, plus some SBY. I guess it depends on your bids and luck.

Hi Casablanca.

finally the opening has been announced, April 30 2014, that is for some airlines and not for all, but on 27th of May All airlines will operate from the New Hamad International Airport.

Apparently (not yet official) 1st of June CDG will be first QR destination for the A380, so with the new A380 joining, in a few months A350 and more planes joining the fleet (b787, B77W), I think we will see a lot of movements in training.

However im not sure how many new people will join, I also heard that the number of internal upgrades fro command is going to increase quite fast. So that will help for us waiting in the pool.

Lets see what happen from here to end of the year.

Regards to all.
