Thanks in advance.

There are slight variations... it will depend on whether youre doing a CCQ, are Type Rated or need a Full Type Rating, also where you do your training but count on 3months. For the first 4weeks or so you will be doing little or nothing to do with your aircraft... its Medicals, SEP, Air Law, Company Inductions, Ditching etc.

you get a week Off before Line Training called Training Leave (you can leave the country if you wish)... this is really to enable the company/QCAA to process your licence which you will need to start flying.

Trying to sort out move logistical timing with family move. When/How.... TR. Yes, the Line Training Leave to be able to bring Family, Family processions and Fur Family back in during this time.
Thank you. Will plan on having a week.
Thank you for your heads-up.

Great lifestyle, I can only recommend it to everyone because the city is also so nice and your family will love it. If you are single you will love our fantastic cabin crew as well. They might not say hello to you because you are most likely someone who earns too much for doing nothing, while at the same time just trying to sleep with them on layovers and they know from the company that it's better not to hang out with you (I told you already that the company is smart).
Before I forget, the culture and the positive developments in every aspect of how they run the airline really inspired me.

I really think that I will miss the DOH LAX flight without day off or the cargo runs with min rest every second flight because we have an effective fatigue management system which is entirely embedded in the usual just culture.
Please come and take my place when im gone after my notice is done, the seat will still be warm and I haven't farted a lot recently.



No matter how much you say or how you put it across, no one here is going to listen to you. They will only have to go there and feel what it is like to fly 120 hrs block a month flying through
timezones night in night out. All in a toxic environment. Don't look at the $$ guys, money can't replace peace in life. You don't wana be flying with fear all the time.

For example, the company does not care if you perform a go-around, which is SOP. They will care, and ask you to explain, if they find that somewhere up along the approach path you did not follow SOP, which then led to the go-around. It couldnt be simpler, just do what the book says.
If anyone ever turned up for duty and openly admits to me they have not had their 12 hours rest, theyll be offloaded. You may think this is harsh, but if they are stupid enough to tell me, then its their own fault. Just imagine you have an incident during the flight and then this maverick tells the office he informed you he did not have the required rest. Its simple here, do as youre required and everything is ok. If you dont like it, leave and go and work elsewhere.

hello guys, today i called by Qatar Airways for A330 F/O in July. I have been waiting for only 3 months. To be honest i was expecting to be called after at least 1 year
so how is the estimate salary for an a330 f/o , roster, and after how many hours/years you become a captain? are they offering wide body or not?
thanks for your replys...

if you went to the assesment three months ago as you claim they should have given you all the details of the package they offer, I dont want to sound mean or anything but they gave you a pretty thorough slide show of the terms and conditions, Its weird you dont remember any of these numbers.

I am sure, as Don Vitto suggests, you will find that out in your July DOJ. With everything changing, I am sure when FIFA announces in June their reschedule, it will impact heavily between hours on Airbus NOW and THEN.

32 to 48 FIFA will lift ban is what I am implying. Return to Airbus Shuttle to UAE. Might impact you layovers.... JS. Why do you think Airbus has started recruiting heavily alround? 3mos and you expected 1yr.... ? Mmmm. Think shuttle service Cowboy 🤠

I would love to be a fly on the wall as you have that cup of tea with fleet management explaining the delay or perhaps the cancellation of a flight because you saw fit to offload the FO as he had violated OM-A. Good luck Pudding
