No way! House allowance is part of the package, and actually the company is plenty of empty accommodations. The queue to leave company accommodation is more than a year actually.
There is no way to join without pass through a company accommodation...

What?? ALL long-haul?
Smallest plane on EK fleet is B772(WB).
How do you think the EK fly to India/Pakistan/Oman/Saudi/Bahrain/Kuwait?
Trust me, there are a LOT of short flights on 777 at EK[and QR also, less short flights now (BAH-00:25hs, DXB-00:50hs, DMM 01:00hs)thanks the blockade!]
Double-Sectors are common also!. 4 sectors in a WB a day, it is tough!

The question of all questions. On their website they only have Type rated positions posted. Are they hiring non type rated folks or not?

Questions questions....

Hello All,

Im in the application process and I have 4 questions should anyone be able to assist:

1. Regarding the education allowance, to what age and school level will QR pay this? Is it just to the end of High School, does it cover University or is it to a certain age regardless?

2. It appears that they offer the position, you then move to Doha, and then they do the Medical. Is the Medical similar to FAA or EASA? Are there maximum uncorrected eyesight limits and what is the extra blood test screening for? Id hate to resign my job and find myself getting rejected for not being Astronaut fit.

3. Im using an Electronic Logbook (Safelog). Do they want me to print the whole logbook for the interview/assessment process? What have other people done in the past? My current organisation doesn't stamp personal logbooks. Any suggestions there?

4. What do FAA Licence Holders present as their certificate for English Language Proficiency?

Id appreciate any guidance, thanks.

1. Don't have kids in school, so haven't paid much attention to any recent policy changes. But, it covers up to a certain age. 21 I believe, so yes, you can send your kid/s to uni and QR will pay the education allowance.

2. Yes that is correct. I and I stress I have never heard of anyone faliing after coming to DOH. Though it may have happened. I would think once you got here, if there was some problem during the medical, the company would give you the time you needed to rectify the situation.
Simialr to an EASA medfical. Eyesight, I have no idea.
They wont let you in the country with some diseases (HIV, Hepatits C etc). If you can pass an FAA medical, I would say you will pass a QCAA one as well.

3. Electronic Logbook was ok for my interview. The stamp, they were very insistant on that. I read somewhere that there was a way around it, not sure what it is. You will need a paper logbook for them to stamp for your endorsement to get your QCAA licence. I think that is a QCAA requirement.

4. An FAA Holder will have to answer that.

I use Logten Pro, I have an older version which works well. Every time I need to present it, I'll make sure is updated and insert the pages in the binder. They usually stamp it for me. While back, I recall reading Logten pro was the only electronic logbook approved by Qatar Airways.

Regarding the allowance, They will cover up to the age of 21. I have a daughter who studies down under, so that won't be an issue. Should you have any questions, feel free to PM.

Best of luck

There was a rumor floating around that only Logbook pro was allowed.... was a misinterpretation.
ELECTRONIC LOGBOOKS NEED TO BE PRINTED.... and every page stamped Vs. a traditional logbook only last 2 pages..... this is a QCAA requirement for license issuing.
FAA license says English proficient so will be granted level 4 icao.. then in year or two you will need to be tested.
It is hard to get a stamp as most airlines in USA dont do that. But they may give you a letter or sign logbook saying you have worked here since 2004 as Capt on xxx, in good standing etc... get that notarized and have notary stamp everything or something creative..,.. as FAA will not stamp anything.. any and all record verification request will be sent directly between Qcaa/Faa

I use safe log and it's ok, but you do have to print it out.
I'm from the USA so I did not have any stamps in my log book so I
printed it out and had it notarized in the US and it worked ok.

Good luck with everything!!

Does anyone have any solid explanation on why all flights show
13 available for staff travel now.

Since this has been done without issuing any explanation, I am
curious to know what these pathetic idiots have done to us now.
