can anyone from Wataniya post the latest. There seems to be absolutely no news about the company anymore. How are the loads lately? Are they picking up business. How is the expansion going

I highly doubt that Iraq getting new planes would affect Wataniya. Iraq's stability is more of a concern than them running an established airline. Anyways any new info about Wataniya would be nice. Thanks again guys.

Good to know they are planning on flights to India....however I think Indians don't really go for the high fare. They look for the cheapest tickets possible. I remember JZR was flying to Delhi and now it doesn't show on their schedule anymore. wonder why....

skytrek21,

I wonder why Singapore,Etihad,Emirates,Qatar,Continental,American,British Airways,Lufthansa,Virgin Atlantic,Delta,Cathay,Korean,Thai,Malaysian,SAS,El Al,Saudia,Oman Air,Kuwaiti,plus Indian Carriers and the list goes on and on and on fly to India and you know why smarty pants,its because India for them is cash cow.And who really cares about Jazeera,look at Air Arabia,they fly to plenty of cities in India.

Look at the travellers in America who dont like to pay a whole lot either and love to fly on Southwest in cattle class,which is pretty much a greyhound bus service.

I think the Wataniya concept is a breath of fresh air in the midst of all these crappy, no-service lo-co's.

Best of luck to them!

Head of Operations Control Centre or other jobs

The Head of OCC and other management roles have been advertised since March/April, and I was wondering if they have appointed anyone, or if these roles are simply sliding along without momentum being put behind them to get them filled? Anyone who knows anything about thise, please let me know, or even send me a PM if preferred? Thanks to you all!

Nothing listed on company website. Is this an internal advertising?

Anyone know when pilot recruitment is continuing? I have been invited a while ago, but put on hold for the time being.

Am in touch with persons at Wataniya, and the word is that pilot recruitment was brief and done with early this year for now. Am just wondering what has happened to the upper-management roles that were advertised back in March! The jobs are no longer on their website, as theyre now over 3 months old... Any news from anyone, much appreciated...

I find it hard to believe they would give any pilot/crew member a bonus, considering they have NOT made any $$$ since they started. Folks are still leaving and hiring attorneys just to get their yearly bonus payout. Unless you actually work/worked for Wataniya, you really don't understand what is going on or know the truth.

I think the rumors are just that and anything else is just a pipe dream
Dear Mepilot10

don't waste your time answering to Glock,
1He is making fun of us since day1
2Maybe he is belonging to the elite of crew flying the wonderful A300,A310 or Prehistoric A340 belonging to the biggest flag carrier of the Gulf...(13-15 aircrafts?????)
Maybe he flies for the best and most wanted low cost of the world based in KWI...who knows
Everyone should keep his mouth shut here....i can't see any brilliant example of commercial airline in KWI.
Of course i cannot blame people for making fun of us but let us doing this

Glock320 which is your airline?Just to have an idea....
