I'm asking a normal question as a young woman. So sad to see people can't give advice.. I don't know anything about aviation the only thing I care about is to know if he lied to me or not. Guess we can't even ask advice to people who know stuff

2 Stripes & Wings

Cadet pilot....low time, low experience.
Must be under supervision while flying. No guarantees of making it through the complete process.

1 stripe is a cadet, 2 stripes is an FO with less than 3 years in the company even if he/she has more than 10 000 hours.

I'm an FO on the 777, although it's far from perfect , I'm quite happy with the job itself, Doha is not the most exciting place for a single lad, however it's a little bit of "what you make it". You have to come here with realistic expectations.

Money, roster, destinations, bidding system, staff travel, annual leave, route network and training is quite good. The job has improved significantly the last few years. I don't know about the Airbus fleet though.

Rosters in the 787 are quite decent. Many European destinations, mostly N-S flights instead of W-E (so, except for some flights to Asia, you don't cross many time zones as the guys on 777 do). Midrange flights, you log all your flight time (so far) and the airplane is really nice.

Cons? No flights to the States to make some shopping.. lol

Fear drives the entire company, plus most of the unhappy ones left for better jobs. That explains why the complaints won’t show here.

A Spanish FO was recently released for getting pregnant for
the second time in relatively short succession to the first pregnancy.

She was told her productivity history was unacceptably low.

Her husband, a Captain here, is doing what you would expect him to do.

It’s not a airline. It’s a labour camp. Don’t ever kid yourself.

Itís definitely a labour camp, but usually there is more behind stories like these. The company is ruthless when it comes to pilots mistakes but very understanding when the situation involves oneís personal life and health. Who knows?

Well it's official, our career has hit rock bottom. Now blokes have to lie about not being a pilot to pick up.

Thats not the case..!! In Qatarairways either you quit or they quit you.. itís a big number of pilots entering and exiting the company on a daily bases..🙄
