Thanks for pointing these out to me, Luke.

Gulf Air pay is about 2500QAR a month higher on the Embraer and about 5000+QAR on the 320 family. Obviously depending on personal circumstances. Plus a better lifestyle on E-Jet but flying wise not on A320 fam. Can't compare social/family wise, GF is in another league.

May I ask how long it will take for a Fast Track SO to be transferred to the FO rank?. Read somewhere that it will happen upon completion of the line training and line check. Is this correct?

Thank you.

@Luke You're comparing apples to oranges. You have to be typed to get on with Vietnam. Qatar is still one of the best options for non-typed guys. Where else can non-typed guys make those wages?

The guy who was asking for the info, never said anything about typed or non-typed did he I presumed he was a QR pilot looking to get out.

But yes, at the risk of stating the obvious, the top dollar asian contracts require experience on type. If you're non type rated then you probably need to read again that last sentence in my previous post :

QR needs to seriously seriously raise their game with regard to money and to lifestyle, or they will continue to be a joke airline where people get the rating and leave.
There's a good little advice in there for you

Is this a fair representation of A320 FO pay at QR?

Gross income about $10900 per month including housing allowance and flight pay, take off $3-3.5k USD for housing, take off $1390 for bond, that leaves about $6100 USD gross. After 18 months that would go up to $7490 a month after housing, then you'd get your 25k USD bond money at the end of the 3 years. Is my math about right?

How does exchange rate protection work?

Thanks

I think you have over-bloated figures. Here's what I have for 1st year F/O per month...

Exchange Rate: 3.65

Base Pay: 21,500 Qr ($5,890.41)
Flight Pay: 90 Qr ($24.66) * 75hrs/Mo = 6,750 ($1,849.32)
Per Diem (avg): 1,200 Qr ($328.77)
Housing: 10,000 Qr ($2,739.73)
Utilities: 300 Qr ($82.19)
Transport: 1,500 Qr ($410.96)

Subtotal: 41,250 Qr ($11,301.37)
Bond: -5,066.2 Qr ($1,388.00)
Total Pay/Mo: 36,184
Qr ($9,913.37)

Very accurate description av8tordude, thanks.
Does any of those figure increase with seniority ?
How do you receive your per diems (cash, included in your salary, etc.)?

Only base pay increases. Per Diem is paid in local currency base on overnight layover location.

Education allowance

tkd90:

According to my contract:

3.2 You will be reimbursed 100% of the actual basic tuition fees up to a maximum of QAR 105,000 per annum for eligible children in accordance with the Company's Policies.

This is verbatim.

FYI it's 35.000 per child so for 3 child it is 105.000 but if the invoice for one child is more than 35.000 per year you will not be reimbursed over 35.000 just keep this in mind.

Example :

Child 1 = 45.000 (max 35.000)

Child 2 = 20.000

Total = 65.000

You will be reimbursed only 55.000

I believe it can be anywhere but only up to the $ Limit set by QR.

Sorry if this was explained before, but what is the max education allowance for just one child? And until what age?
Many thanks.

There must be something in the fine print about maximum per child. It sounds as though Menikos has hands on experience with the process!
