Joining Qatar Airways (QR) - all you need to know about it (threads merged)

Gentlemen,

I am a prospective DEC for the B787 and have a joining date for November 2015. I have a few questions for which I haven't quite found any clear answers in this thread. I would deeply appreciate it anyone could fill me in on the following questions:

1. How many hours do B787 captains average per month?
2. How many days off can I expect per month, along with the usual days one can expect get off together.
3. What is the average take home salary for a B787 Captain?
4. Can one travel without any restrictions on off days?
5. What are the B787 destinations?
6. What is the minimum and maximum layover/night halt duration? How many layovers can one expect each month?
7. How many same day return flights can one expect on the B787 each month?
8. Are there frequent roster/schedule changes?
9. Flight schedules when released are for what duration typically? (eg a month or more/less?)
10. Is it easy getting annual leave?
11. Do wives actually need your permission each time they want to travel outside the country?
12. Are company provided apartments/villas of a good standard and well located?
13. Is it better to look for accommodation at the pearl/west bay area?
14. Is there much for wives to do in Qatar, barring going to malls?
15. My confirmation letter states the B787 fleet has been assigned to me. Is it possible that QR will change this once I get there to say a A320 or B777?
16. Can wives frequently travel with you on your layover flights?

Some of these questions might be trivial or silly, but I would still appreciate some insight to help align my expectations with the ground realities before I get there!

Thank you.

Thumbs up 666 AbsolutSkyy

Interesting questions were asked by AbsolutSkyy.

I would appreciate the information given(?) by 666 as well, if there is some.

If it's not top secret, maybe you could post it here for all of us. Otherwise a PM would be awesome.

Chief Pilot: Not really top secret, but company policy forbids employees from posting corporate information on public websites, thus the reliance on PMs. As PPRuNe states, there is no such thing as anonymity on this forum so everyone is a bit cautious about what they post.

At least it is not as severe as "the airline that shall not be named".

Hope you all got the answers to your queries.

Administrative management seems to shuffle here quite regularly. Fortunately, the safety teams are intact. At the level of the line pilot we have seen some improvements though there are still areas than require change.

It is entertaining to watch the dynamics of passenger vs cargo operations.

I can't believe you took a job while still being this clueless
about what it involves.

Absolute, either you are a total idiot, or you don't give two
shits about your wife and family.

Either way good luck, you are the type that usually has a very
bad time here.
