dear chuck noris

if u can't stand the truth, than do not insult other people, or do u tell me, that u do not get payed while sleeping or let's call it resting in the bunk with yr fancy inflight entertainment system while u fly to jfk, iah etc?

if this is the case, than i say nothing - but it is not - or did i miss something new in qr, except the 66% rule?

pls inlight me

what?

So you want us to fly the whole 16 hours to IAH? What you don't think we should be paid for the whole flight, just when we are in the seat? What's your point?

Airwjo, your comment has no sense, you remind me of those frustrated bush pilots who believe they are superior because they know how to fly without an Autopilot. But note for yourself, we all know how to fly a plane, this is not what's most difficult in this job. And don't use childish comments like that, just making a fool of yourself.

Thumbs up

I have a friend who has been for the interview last month and confirms there is no bond money deductions for DEC's.Infact he has been offered right seat B777 and after 500 odd hrs (subject to performance ofcourse)upgrade to command and has been told nomoney deducted towards bond.If you leave before 3 yrs,you cough up the money and clear all dues etc.
about waiting period,it seems they are inviting people as per ones experience and background.
good luck to all.

Doubtful when you require at least 2 years in the company, 2 consecutive sim's at above 4 grading....plus there are more than enough guys with the hours to change seats...

The bond is only for NTR ... the same for left or right seat! Around 50 k$ also if they put you on a short type rating corse!

Infact he has been offered right seat B777 and after 500 odd hrs (subject to performance ofcourse)upgrade to command
5 is correct but the unit is not hours but years . Living the dream ... the best thing to do is to join as DEC!


nomoney deducted towards bond
Again for NTR is 5000 qr per month from DOJ for 18 months ... but things can change pretty fast around those barns!

I see a lot of figures and great information on pay in these posts and have a great idea of what Qatar pays, thank you all for that.

I do not see however, whether or not these numbers are pre-tax or post-tax or if QA salary is tax free.

I apologize if I missed it somewhere, but I searched the whole thread and could not find it. If anyone can shed light on this or point me to a post that has this info, I will be forever grateful Thanks!

Apparently if you have the FO time by joining you'll be FO, but if the number of bars is an issue, I believe FO's wear 2 until SFO.

Fo / SFO

What is the criteria please to move from FO to SFO, is it hours or time served?

Does this involve an increase in the base pay of 21,500QR on promotion to SFO or just an extra bar to wear!!

Also does anyone know or able to confirm that if you join as an FO Non TR you obviously have the bond payments taken from your salary for 18 months. If you wanted to or needed to leave at this point (ie.18 months) as you have paid the $25kUSD back or are you still bonded for 3 years ?

Many thanks

@Dan98

The detailed pay scales are on pilot jobs network.

Don't know about promotion. Think it's after 3 years or so.

No idea about the bond. I would assume that after 18 months you will still owe 18 months bond. Since the $25k is paid back at the 3 year point I think it's used more of an incentive to stay rather than a payment scheme to leave.

Thanks i can see how they pay it at 3 years as a carrot to stay and it isn't that i would definitely want to, i just wanted to know if needs arose that you could without having to pay any money. I was not sure if the bond was $25k or $50k?

Many thanks

Don't known the level of confidence we can have to the following;

Seems that some Qataris have asked for a..60 percent increase of the salary in Qatar airways (probably jealous about their colleagues in the army who received last years ..a 100 percent+ increase).
CEO off course refused to give 60 percent more to Qataris only...but "proposed"instead a 20 percent increase for everybody...again proposing something is one think..signing it..is another think!
Now I can understand the rumor i have seen here before about salary increase..and where it comes from...

Hi, I don't recall seeing any mention of a 13th month pay bonus.
Admittedly, I didn't search every posting!

Do they pay this? I know it is customary in some companies in the region!
Cheers

Flyingstig.indeed not such a thing here (13th month)
the Only thing we got the last two years is...one week bonus..
If you want a decent bonus, you should apply to EK.
