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.

Connected to the cancellation of pp travel where tickets were being sold commercially thanks to a few idiots!!!
Now all have been made to suffer due to this and you will only know the loads,6 hrs before the flight.

I have no idea but I hope that it's only temporary since this will make things much more difficult.

Staff travel management have asked to only show 4/9 j/y until 6 hours before flight is due, I'm also lead to believe all flights are now capped at 13 staff travel

Capped at 13, regardless of actual seat availability?

WHY ?

Well it might have changed already, we can now see 10/25 outside of 4 days, inside shows the load, perhaps too many complaints in the 2 days they had this 4/9 and I'm hoping the 13 staff cap had been upped

As I told before, pilots are starting to move to the other side of the Persian Gulf...

Outside of 72 hours +10/+25 (more than) unless the actual loads are less. Within 72 hours of departure actual loads are displayed.

Itís been my experience that many are actually moving this way from the other carriers and not the other way round...

Some people were profiting from those benefits (privileges suspended ufn)

Why would we goto Iran?

Nevertheless the problem was quickly solved. Current system will not have as big impact as the first (not so good) version.

Does anybody have any insight on to whether QR will have eventual vacancys for NTR FOs or SOs? I am a Chicago based E175 pilot, and would love to join QR.

FWIW, I know of a pilot that was an E175 capt that joined QR as DEC 320 with no airbus time.
If you are FO, then you may want to consider getting your upgrade and some PIC first. Makes you much more marketable.

Thank you WrldWide - I have been awarded an upgrade, however it is on the E145. My plan is to keep building tPIC experience, and updating my app as necessary.

As per the careers' website, there's no more NTR vacancies (except for QR Executive). Either an Airbus or Boeing type rating are required to apply, both for DEC and FO.

If your current airline also flies Boeing or Airbus, you might consider trying a fleet transfer to get the TR.

And think the holding pool is still pretty sizeable, so would be surprised if they recruit NTR in the short-medium term future

Thanks for all the info - my company only operates E175/CR7/E145, so no chance of a Boeing or Airbus type in the short term. I will keep building time, and taking opportunities as they present themselves, and hopefully will have a chance to fly for QR in the future!

If you are tired of DECs, I would recommend you not look in the ME.

I am referring to DECS, Sabre system designed in the 50s, later implemented in the 60s. A real pain to use!

Anyway back to topic!

Hello Everyone.

I have a couple of questions about QR - 777 Fleet Application process. I must say i checked several pages under this thread but i can not find exact and recent information. Thats why i m gonna keep you busy. I m about to apply for co pilot position to 777 fleet. I m currently flying for 777 with total 2900 hours (1600 hours on type ) and i wonder a couple of things about process ;

1- Is there anything special about online application ? Do we need some references or do we have to complete some online tests just after we apply ? I like to be prepared in advance in order to be ready.

2- What i need to spend time on ? I mean, which source do i need to study for ;

- Online tests
- Atpl exam
- Skype interview
- Simulator check

etc.

People are mentioning about latestpilotjobs web site ? Is it a reliable and recent source to prepare myself ?

4-= These days how long does it take to finish all the steps and get an OK from company ( i hope ) and in case of a positive result , when do i have to start without starting all the steps from beginning ? ( Lets say in 6 months , 12 months etc )

5-) How long does it actually take to get out from company provided house to housing allowance option ? 6 months , 1 year , 2 years ?

I m waiting to hear your valuable comments and guidelines for a successful application period.
