Hi

On the basis of the number of people at staff check in, is the RHS 777 fleet commutable after training?

From say BKK?

Thank you

There is no pay difference between 777 and 787, or any other fleets.
The 777 probably has more monthly pay as it is mostly longhaul and heavy crews factor the flight time but get paid for all.........so you may be logging 75 hours but paid for 90.

Commutable????? Depends on your definition and expectations.
I am flying with an Italian pilot....he likes it here and says he makes it home more from Qatar then he did when working for his previous Italian airline.
So it is possible to go home a lot but wouldn't call it truly commuting.

BKK currently has 4 flights a day.....but usually very full.
As a pilot you at least have option for jumpseat so usually can get on

Qatar has announced that they'll make a roadshow in Istanbul 12-13 Apr. 2016. (Radisson Blue Hotel)
It'll be a meeting and interview with pilots who willing to join Qatar.
And TK has decreased required hours from 1000hrs to 750 hrs for FO's

How difficult or easy is it for your wife to work in Qatar? Can she independently work or are there any things to be taken into account when she accompanies her husband?

QR Medical

Hi

I understand that unlike EK and others, QR doesn't require you to do the medical during the interview. I was told we'll be doing the class 1 after joining.

Would it be ok if i request to do the medical first before resigning from my current employer?

Thanks in advance

You can do a qatari class one medical in advance - Dr Orton in STN comes to mind. IT will cost you around 340 pounds.

There are some extra medical checks done on your initial that now not done on renewal medicals. The medical at STN may not include the full medical required for your initial QCAA class one..

I suggest you do a medical at your home country before you arrive here in Doha so as you have the confidence to know you just passed one at home.

Nervous about your kids ? Why, what's your concerns

Hi guys, would any of you at QR know if there is a ban with FZ guys joining you? The belief is there is no ban at the moment.

Thanks

Can anyone who's been through the assessment process recently please share details of the sim? (Rated Boeing FO)
I've heard that it ends with a single engine visual, just trying to establish if any automation or fd's are available?
Please PM if you'd rather...
Many Thanks

Do I need to submit an application so that I can attend the Qatar open day or I just walk in?

No you don't need to submit an application to attend the road show,
but you should probably get your head examined.

It seems We aré done!!

Finallly today some friends and me we receive an update from the Recruitment area and they were well explained that there is NO MORE Boeing Captains Vacancies for 2016.

We have to wait until the 18th month of the application extension and then apply again if they have the vacancy further.
But not for now!!

Finally they apologize for the inconvenience etc etc!
So What's next after 14 months waiting and swimming in the Holding Pool???
