I understand the allowance to be the following:

1 child - up to 50,000 QR
2 children - up to 75,000 QR
3 children - up to 105,000 QR (max)

I'm sure I have seen it written somewhere, but I may be wrong.

Hmmmmm.... Doha or Hanoi/ Saigon?

I think the choice is obvious, gents.

Like one guy said, QR really needs to up their game if they intend to keep/ retain pilots. I know plenty who have quit and a few more who are actively looking elsewhere right now. What's that tell you?

SJS (Shiney Jet Syndrome) only lasts 90 days max. In end it all build down to QOL (Quality of lifestyle).

Your staff travel is slightly wrong. You and your family i.e wife and kids get unlimited ID90 + 50 plus an annual free ticket per year, but your parents, brothers or sisters get 1 ID90 or 1 ID50 if you are married per year, your wife's family get nothing.

Seems like a good deal, however the pension/provident fund would be a good idea if they want to keep crew.

As to people leaving, where are the Captains going? have they made enough and bailing out to a semi-retirement job. Or are there better places for type-rated Captains as DEC?

I read somewhere or I heard from someone (not quite sure) that QR pay an utility allowance of qr300 and a telephone/communications allowance of qr400.

Doesn't say much. Besides, instead of making comments like this, why not offer a comparison with the airline you're working for (since you are flying at a far superior airline). If you can't, your statements mean nothing!

housing allowance / housing provided?

Hi, I've been searching on the various Qatar fourms, and I im still not sure if the DEC package includes a housing allowance, or a house/villa provided by the company, ? and if its an allowance as the post above describes, is 12,000 enough for a decent place,? would appreciate any info, thanks.

DEC = Villa
Or you can opt for housing allowance.
QR 12000 is ample enough for a decent villa or a large sized apartment.

A Note on Leave...

Working conditions......they are so short of crews that leaves were cancelled, as of November 2011. Unless it changed in the last few weeks.

Again, I remember reading somewhere that your wife parents are entitled to either an ID90 or a couple of ID50. Anyone with inside info?

Does QR buy back your canceled vacation. If so, sounds to me you guys have nothing really to complain about. If they don't, I can understand the disappointment, BUT that alone does not constitute that QR compensation package is inferior to any other airline out there. QR is rapidly growing airline and unfortunately the current crews there are the ones who pay the price for this rapid expansion.

That being said, if those who bash QR compensation package can present there own compensation package the airline that employs you for comparative analysis, in a bullet points presentation as busav8r has done, than a serious debate can be offered. Until then...Put Up or Shut Up!

I got this info (82,000 usd) from the last QR roadshow I attended...
Maybe someone else can confirm if this info is correct.

Salary / School fees

"SCHOOL FEES until the age of 21 (19 ?)
- up to 50,000 / year / 1 child
- 75,000 / year / 2 child (up to 37,500 per child max)
- 105,000 / year / 3 child (up to 35,000 per child max)"

Can anyone explain the exact meaning of "school fee" in this context? For instance, if I am working to QR but my child is studying in an university somewhere in Europe, does the "school fee" still apply? And until what extent? The housing, books, food, etc, are also included? Can anyone share his/her own experience? Also, can anyone confirm the age limit for the school fee? Is it 19 or 21?

Thanks
