The Qataris won't forget who their friends are.

I would start packing if I was in Qatar. Atleast fly the wife n kids back home if that applies to you. Sh!t is about to get a lot worse in Qatar as they defy the other GCC members. Donald Trump will not help Qatar so that hope is gone. It's funny because Akbar Al Baker used to boast about how good of a friend Donald Trump is to him, lol, AAB was naive. It's like a form of strong black magic has hit Qatar. Very strange.

Also for those in QR making fun of the likes of Ryan Air, be very careful in mocking any potential employer at this time as you may need them. Or, you can always drive a taxi...

Qatar shouldn't have supported terrorism but they did it and now they will pay the price. Again, I would leave Qatar just to be safe. It's not safe being in Qatar at the moment.

If the nameless airline and EK really wanted to do QR the final death blow , they would offer jobs to all QR crew. Would love to see the look on AAB`s face then.

Qatar Airways will become a thing of the past, all QR employees should be very worried. Abu Dhabi and EK should encourage QR employees to join.

That sounds like POTUS.....

BTW, if we talk about financing terrorism; Saudia should be a domestic airline. I don't see any reason why it isn't safe in Qatar. The Saudis can't manage the conflict in Yemem. Going into another "adventure" with the risk that this will end up in a war with Iran and Turkey would be foolish. Keep in mind that they have a large Shia minority in the eastern province.

If the U.S pulls out of Qatar, then it's game over. Donald Trump seems to be on the sides of Saudi and its allies. Let's see what happens but it doesn't look too bright for Qatar..

I think you would be shocked at how few would apply.
The satisfaction rate at QR is actually quite high.
Unlike the two UAE twins.

on one wants to join Emirate or other airlines from Qatar.

we have a better schedule than Emirate. We get full leaves every year and every month we have at least 4 off days in a row by default.

Maybe Emirate's pilot should join Qatar.

And Turkey just started to deploy troops to Qatar. Did you recognize that the left hand in the US administration doesn't agree what the right hand says.
I bet if the US pulls out a couple of tenants are ready to move in. The enemy of my enemy is my friend......

Some reports suggest that the POTUS didn't know about the US base in Qatar...


I would rather fly with QR than any of the big three US Airlines, especially UA & AA who are probably one step up from Air Koryo.

I understand Qatar Airways may be a better employer than EK but you may not be left with many alternatives just in case all this escalates and you get furloughed. Just sayin, anything is possible at this point.

It sure won't be pretty if the U.S pulls out, I can tell you that much. We'll have to see how this plays out.

Ran into a QR crew in PVG in the lobby of the hotel 2 days ago, a 3 man crew, all 3 were western expats, when I asked if any of them were thinking of jumping ship to EK, they all said basically the same thing, that if QR falls apart, none of them would even think about going to EK.
