Hi guys, happy new year for everyone!
Do you know when does QA will start calling Direct Entry Capts from the Holding Pool?? Or any estimate?
Or how is the situation down there in Doha?
I've been holding since Feb 2015, and there is not much more fuel to go.
I'm a B737 current Capt by the way!
Take care guys, and be safe!

It can be a case by case evaluation, but the airline has nothing to do with this process... It is mentioned that if you have some "spots" on your x-rays you are not accepted, but than there are doctors assessing your situation.

It is a limit situation, you could be rejected or pass..

Qatar airways has officially revised the 12 months to 18 months from interview date. God bless the HR. Brilliant news received by email.

Cheers

Mail

It seems that many of the holding guys, received the same email.
Now we can expect 18 months instead of the 12 initially.
And we can assure we are considered to continue our processes.
Good luck to eveyone!!
Be safe guys!! 🛬

badly looking forward to hand my resignation to the bean counters that screw their front line staff after years of hard work with massive paycuts while paying new multi million bonuses to its management and announcing record profits.

Has anyone heard any rumour that Ldggrup is mentioning?
13% of pay raise? I hardly doubt it, because Qatar is already offering the best package there is in th region. But if they to it, they probably will have the best package in the world... Any reality in that?

Hey everyone,

Does someone know how many SO are in the holding pool ?
Is there any SO who left the pool to join who could give an idea of their past interview date ?
Thanks, safe flights

I know a guy he did his interview in 2nd week of March and joined in Dec.

Also another guy did in june and joined in june itself ( urgent requirement abd he didn't had any notice to serve)

I was in March

Hi guys! How you doing??
Well let me tell you about my case and some friends coming from the 737NG.
We applied since December 2014 and we did the interview the first week of March as DEC.
We were approved around March 15th.
Until today we got the same mails as many of us here about the Holding Pool and the new 18 months revision.
Couple friends on the line assure me the B787 it's been slowly as DEC.
The B777 has more afluency in the movements.
There are as well many moves from the right seat to the left side in the fleets.
So I believe this huge pool have many people probably since December 2014 or January 2015 something around!
And the reasons are many as well.
And also, the trainings supposed to be full too with more than 50 pilots p/month on type.
Hopefully my review helps others!
Be safe guys!! 🛫
