I am pretty sure they only allow one app...maybe initially you can but by the time you do skype interview you will have to decide which one you want to pursue

Command Upgrade vs. Joining Qatar Airways

Any opinion appreciated about deciding command upgrade at the present company or joining Qatar as an F/O. What are the conditions and chances on upgrade in Qatar Airways. Thanks in advance

Which aircraft do you have an opportunity to upgrade on?
There is definitely an active upgrade program at Qatar Airways, and depending on fleet probably about 4-6 years wait at present.......there are a lot of hoops to jump through and failure is always a possibility
If you are able to upgrade at present company on Boeing / Airbus you will soon have many options to join as Captain in various airlines
There are many other factors such as whether you prefer long haul, on a wide body vs narrow body etc...

They're paid with the salary at the end of the month. Usually, it's enough for a decent meal in most of the places (not em all).

How long does it take for them to send the online test after you apply? I haven’t heard now in 3 weeks.

Current fleet growth is on the T7 and a few 747F. 737 guys were being placed on the 787 in the past. It's a question of supply and demand.

As I said I am sure things will change if/when the 737 and new 787-9 arrive.

Not saying it's impossible to join as a current narrow body Capt especially if you have previous widebody experience as an FO.
"Be type rated and current on the B777/B787 with minimum of 500 hours in command on type, or on B767/B757/B737NG/B747-400/800 with a minimum of 2000 hours in command on type."

Also, none of the other requirements states you have to have widebody experience.

What the website says and what they do maybe 2 different things. I am guessing your reading from the add referenced QR7735. That is an old add and been on the website a long time. If you have those requirements, apply, but does not mean you'll get an invite. Lots of First Officers getting upgrades on the 787 at the moment.

The QR7735 has been there for a long time but they removed the 737 from the list of accepted types for applying and they were not even considering 737 Capts for months. Few weeks ago it was included again and they are now inviting them.
