Correction

Salamailakum2

You're right! My mistake was the conversition rate: 1QAR its not 0.365USD but 0.275USD, so the actual salary for a new joiner captain will be in average 11400USD or 8600 ( today's rates). If you add the house and education allowances the number will be around the 15000 that was mencioned before...
As for for the new joiners acommodation, my contract states 1st month on a hotel then get the money and find your own shack...

Non-zero,

Is the bond deducted from your salary or is it that you have to pay it back if you leave within a set number of years (i.e., 3 year bond)?

Also, if you are hired onto the Airbus and you are already A320 type rated and current, do you still have the training bond?

5.000 qr each month out of your basic for the first 18 month from DOJ. No time limit ... pay the bond and you are free ... or...

Average 50 hrs a month. The figure includes flight pay. We get a minimum of 10 days off in a month and that includes at least one full weekend. Ie Friday to Sunday

At the end of the day, you will get what you get.
If you are basing a decision to move your family and life to Qatar on +\- $1000 my advice is don't do it.!!
The basic pay is clearly stated, the allowances are what they are, precisely that!
Some people spend all their housing allowance, others don't, and put money in the bank.
We've all seen guys who don't spend any money on a nightstop, their 'take home pay' will be more than the guy who likes a few beers and a steak when he's away.
It can't be just about the money, IMHO!

" Average 50hrs a month......a minimum of 10 days off in a month.."
Talking about quality of live,In comparison,that's something you will probably never see on your A-320 roster in Qatar airways....

Quality of live...

that's a concept that varies a lot from person to person, depending on culture, nationality, religion, upbringing, etc...
Maybe if you fly 50 hours a month, with 10 days off per month but you're living in a st hole, you'd prefer to fly 100 hourd just to be out of there... Or if you're living in a nice, secure place with pretty good facilities for your family and yourself and ending most of your duty at home base you wouldn't mind to fly 90 hours per month to keep things like they are!
So, what I mean is as long as anyone is getting what they went for...that's quality of live!

Nice landings

Wow,I am a Line Instructor on B737NG and make 7000 USD take home after 75 hrs and get 8 days off.

Is anyone sure if Qatar actually deducts money monthly towards a NTR bond..
I thought they only will take it if you decide to abandon ship before stipulated 2/3 yr bond.can anybody confirm?

Is this something to do with EK that start recruiting DEC...?
Otherwise I don't see any reason to increase the salary again,as the new package we received was less than 1 year ago (June 2011)!

So you don't want the Increase?
I think there is a reason regardless of EK starting DEC.
QR being such a major airline, pay less than a LOT of other airlines in the region.
It will attract Pilots if they do go through with this increase in pay.

Unfortunately is confirmed! ... to avoid future jump shippers!

Living the dream ... one nightmare at the time! But at least those rumors put on a big smile on your face!

... said that ... the rapid expansion need to be lead by financial incentive ... just to show to the aviation community who has the real "cohones" to continue this game!

From my contract, coming without any type, I have to pay 25k USD during 18 month, so 1388usd per month the first 18 months. and after 3 years they give you back the full 25k.
