Insurance - maternity

Hey guys,

I have a question concerning the health insurance at QR. If I remember correctly from the presentation given during the road show, maternity is not covered by Qatar Airways. So, is there any additional insurance available or do you have to pay for maternity/pregnancy which would rather be very expensive.

Thanks for your response.

You are right, until the baby is born nothing related to maternity is covered by the private insurance provided by QR. People use Qatar public health system and no complains so far....
Regards.

Thanks. I thought so. As long as it covered by public care, seems to be okay.

Negative!!
The requirements do not say ANYTHING regarding Seniority!.
Once you fill all requirements(Years in QR, TT Hours and Type Hours and other minir details), you are eligible for upgrade!
I am flying with several senior guys that has been bypassed due lack of hours, and a recent adjust on Turboprop hours make it worse!
There is no seniority list for upgrade!. Tick all the requirement boxes and go

I'd like to know what a single guy could expect to pay monthly for a 2-bed apartment, price of a 4 yr old Landcruiser, and monthly outgoings...not planning to go clubbing but the odd pub lunch etc , socialize at home and go to the desert a bit. Maybe diving trips.

How much covers rent, car insurance/fuel, food, utilities, internet/phone, gym, and the odd pint? I've been told $3k a month should be ok, is this accurate?

Where would be a good place to live? I visited the Pearl when I was there, went to Westbay Beach but it was dark so didn't see much. Also, what are your thoughts about buying a property in Doha?

Thanks in advance!
You can check most of this information doing a research on www.qatarliving.com where you van found classifieds, about almost everything from car, rental car, real estate, cleaning services, everything..
"Timeout Doha" magazine, you can google it, is a good source of social matters, restaurants prices, nightlife..

Hi Rogeriouzz,

You wrote that turbo prop hours were adjusted recently.
How are turbo prop hours factorized at QR? And how many hours on type are required to meet the upgrade requirements?

I'm an A320 FO in Europe with quite a lot of turbo prop time, so I'm quite interested to know.

Cheers

So when you tell the story, try and be clear about each of those points and it will also keep what you tell them relevant and prevent you from rambling on about stuff that doesn't matter. But be sure to use scenarios that paint you in a favourable light - you're trying to sell your skills to them after all!

Good luck.

I'll work on it, thanks a lot.

Upgrades

To be absolutely clear...

Upgrades are determined solely by Seniority.
If you meet the requirements, your name goes into the selection process.
If you don't meet the minimum requirements your name is bypassed, but automatically reconsidered during the next selection board.
A more senior bypassed candidate can still jump ahead of a less senior candidate depending on course dates.
And yes, there is a seniority list for upgrades. Just because it doesn't say it in the OMA doesn't exclude the application of internal management policies.

Exactly Airlifter.

Rogeriouzz, the way you put it makes it sound like anyone who joins with the hours requirements automatically gets their upgrade at 3 years service, which is presently not the case. If there were no eligible candidates senior to that person, then they would.

Fleet transfers are according to operational need and are completely
at the discretion of the management.

Hello QR guys,
I have a question regarding settling in allowance. Does QR provide any advance amount for your furniture in order to move in to the country?
Thanx

Hi, I'm FO and currently flying A380 ...and I'm thinking of applying QR.. so would you please say about average flight time & salary of A380 there..?
Or... is it better for me to apply just "Type Rated F/O Airbus" than A380..?


Thanks in advance.

Guys,

how long will it take if I apply, let's say, today until you will be invited for the assessment in Doha? What's the rough timeline for the application process?

Thanks
