Maybe they're being called back to fly, let's hope so. I read the other day QR were going to ramp up flying.

Yup, Qatar Airways sure have a lot of explaining to do..... spreading that virus. Imagine if other airlines flew during a pandemic.

Why should anybody "confirm this please" ? This may be your thread but there is nothing intelligent in that question; unless you are perverse enough to be comparing suicide rates across the industry whole . . . ????

Perversion has nothing to do with this mate, read the post properly, I was asking if it was a rumor because that’s what I hope.
I asked because if it happened for real ( and I really hope it didn’t) it could be someone we know.
Maybe you’re the one who lacks intelligence.
this is a rumor forum if you don’t like it just leave, who do you think you are, the sheriff of the forum ?

I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest. It's terrible, but happening all the time. Emirates has had many suicides, both cabin and flight deck. Emirates has blood on their hands, and so has Qatar.

Shame on them.

Unfortunately seems to be true. 777 Cpt from New Zealand. This is what a friend told me.

How is the crewing actually currently? Short of pilots, or anything nearby this? A lot of guys have been called back.

Depending what fleet you talking about. Apparently shortage of people is on 777 where guys are flying 110+ hrs per month, similar situation is on 350 fleet. On other hand 787 seems struggling to scale up new routes as the fleet is not the preferred one right now. (limited cargo utilization and no rest bunks for long double sector duties) for Doha based guys flies 30-40 hrs with lot of flight cancellations due to fleet change. Anyway company ops and planning is clearly looking for any opportunity where to fly and dynamically changing rotation, fleets and adding more and more destinations every month so I would stay positive.

Thank you for the update,
There is very little positivity to be found anywhere these days ..so I'll gladly take this glimmer of hope.
Cheers

captain.weird

I doubt they are calling back people who have been made redundant. There are still too many 'Active' pilots out of the country. For us, out of Qr, there is no hope...

I meant with being called back who were out of QR but kept the job. Not the ones who were made redundant.

Any airline that chooses to fly into a wide variety of so many countries, all of which have severe travel restrictions, should be classified as a super-spreader. An airline super-spreader. If these countries into which they operate include Iran, Pakistan, Iraq, and India, the risks are very real. And as for the poor employees of these airlines, they are being widely exposed to the virus from all and sundry passengers. Despatchers, ground crew too. The crews can then spread this pandemic liberally, as can their passengers.

I do not suggest that QR are guilty of this. Nor EK, EY, or WY. Nor PIA or AI. Absolutely not. This could apply to many other carriers.

WY get rid of all expats already, only a few TRE/TRI left until all the locals get trained, then, halas...I hope they donít need expats in the future, it will be hard for them to offer a competitive package.

Is QR still furloughing pilots?
