In fairness, your description of events and conclusions drawn is inflammatory.
I believe the company procedure is to let the ground staff handle something like this and let the other 19 crew members go to the hotel. The health of a particular crew member is assumed to be good if they are flying. I'm sure she shared her private health history with you under the
assumption you would not share it on a public website.

Yeah....my post is the problem. Good job Skipper. I applaud your leadership and thanks for pointing out your company policy and how it absolves you from your duties as the PIC of your aircraft. Un believable.

I’m sick and tired of people sticking their heads in the sand when something is “offensive” or in your words “inflammatory”. The events were as described. Sorry to offend your sensibilities with reality. Forgive the events for not being politically correct. Forgive the small, African girl, alone and in custody for offending you. Good job hiding behind policy. Thanks for pointing out that you are offended by my inflammatory post regarding actual events and your failure as the commander of your aircraft to lead your crew. You are not responsible. Forgive me if I offended you. Can’t make this up...

I am amazed you post on here as if you know the correct story and the whole facts. Do you work for Qatar Airways and were you part of that crew with such event ? How do you know about this event and how it was handle. How do you know about the communications between the Commander and the company, what was discussed ?

My last three companies had the same policy, any crew stuck with screenings in the US is handeled by ground staff and the rest continues to the hotel. Specially when you are doing long haul and have a 24 hour layover, and there is absolutely no authority as a PIC dealing with that.

Spineless. Cowards. A disgrace to the uniform and the profession. Hiding behind policy and can’t make a decision. The SOP’s will save you.

I am not one to comment much on these forums unless I really need to and this time I think I do....

I do work for the said airline and I too am a captain and I had a similar situation as well. I did stay with the crew at the airport and was in constant contact with the company. Once all the information was passed on, the ground staff took over responsibility of the crew member and was constantly in touch with me regarding her wellbeing. 6 hours later she was back at the hotel and deadheaded back to Doha since she didn't have the required rest to operate the flight back.

So before bashing the Captain and polishing your halo, I would suggest knowing all the facts before pointing fingers. I would aspire to be a captain that you seem to be and hopefully one day I will get a Halo of my own

Hey everyone,

I am looking for a little guidance.

I am an FO A320 close to 1000 hrs, from the UK, married with a 8 month year old son.

We currently live in Poland and actively looking to make a move now. Qatar seems a great choice on paper however after reading over the posts it does seem like hit or miss with some people, however I will be optimistic!

I am wondering if anyone can help out with a few questions -

A320 FO roster pattern/days off?

Average salary?

How goes the housing conditions, I know EK give pilot families a villa amongst other pilots which is really good

Many thanks

Good day,

Quick question, I heard that if you join with a Frozen ATPL with less than 1500 total, you have to make an extra exam, and what kind of exam would this be? Do you only have to make an extra exam, or have to redo all your ATPL theory?
