Thanks
You intepreted it wrong.

"Hold a current LPC and has flown the A/C in the past 18 months prior to joining Qatar Airways" means that your last flight on the aircraft should've been no more than 18 months from present days. So if you're currently flying the A320 you can apply without problems.

You best make sure that you have a medical clearance certificate that addresses your surgery.

There is a thread in interviews forum. I think you'll get a better response there.

Good luck and give it your best shot.

Any news about how much pilots they need for the rest of this year?

I feel like they are not in a hurry anymore to hire people, but then again would it affect assesment passing rate anyway? Since they have the whole pool system with the waiting going on and they can leave people on standby before joining the company.

They usually tend to keep you in the same fleet you're type rated, but it all depends on their needs at the moment of hiring. Honestly, nowadays chances they place Airbus guys on Boeing fleet and vice-versa are low, but it has happened before.

Company pays for flight ticket and hotel. Meals are not included.
Ticket is a confirmed economy class with business upgrade depending on seat availability.

Detailed info about the screening can be found on previous pages in this topic and also on latestpilotjobs.com.

11k hours as an FO, dude?! Are you serious? Sorry for my naivety. And you still want to move to another Boeing right seat?, where you will accumulate another 5k hours probably to move to the left?!

I felt the same. I think, you'd better keep your current type to be well-experienced or stay experienced, and wait to be upgradred to the commander position. Man, 11K hours you're talking about !

Headsets

Does anybody know if I can wear my own headsets (DC, Bose, etc) or is it only allow the headsets that Qatar provides you? Or installed in the flight deck.
Thanks
