Is hard to believe the crews are not following the RETI procedure. I would call it . What I observed every single crew is trying to follow SOP at least for few seconds before docking if not other way possible. If the company has a problem with numbers firstly ask state-of-the-air IT department how databases are connected…. I do understand the number for management is kind of problem, but company should ask how they get the number at first place if number provided is realistic or just generated from in-house-made IT system. I have never seen ignoring single engine taxi in for no reason, never!

Plus I completely agree that email was arrogant and far beyond how to communicate with people in 5 star company. And shortly after… the management approved breast cancer show-off 787 flight in time when nobody cares about breast cancer, waste tons of fuel for no reason. Great motivation to continue with single engine taxi in order to safe few kilograms of fuel…

I always followed the SOP and used SE taxi after landing but yer My contract got terminated. I think they are just making excuse to terminate more flight crew contrast. Typical middle east attitude. The problem is they have money and there are always people who want to make more money and join Qatar Airways. The reality is money is everything.

Unfortunately, More of my friends have been made redundant. Two on A320 and one on A330. There were other 15 pilots with them...

It’s beyond Embarrassing..
HIA statement is just like ignoring that Strip Search happened without Consent” which actually was the case, What I’m curious about is, How did authorities made a decision to only delay SYD bound flight?
were other flights in the same slot were delayed as well?
non the less Twitter is a Buzz & QAtar PR is losing it.

Any word on when the 330 fleet is being retired? All pax aircraft grounded, but 4 freighters still flying. What is to become of the 330 drivers?

Brother,
Maybe you should shake yourself before posting....
Check dates and times of your references, and check what date and time I posted my message...
So think twice before posting!

Payne said 18 Australian women on the October 2 flight to Sydney were affected, along with “other foreign nationals”. The AFP news agency reported one French woman on the flight was among them.

Just like the Aussies do every day in regards to the indigenous people of that continent.

So, let's not cry over a search done by airport authorities.

Do you see people complain about how they are treated on arrival in the States or UK?

No. Because it's accepted as the norm.

Live and let live..

I wonder if you would be saying the same thing if someone decided to have your wife and daughter stripped and gave them a quick preflight gynaecological examination.

You talk this way because you were fired, weren’t you!
Don’t take it back with other pilots, it is unfair...you are an embarrassment...you wished you had a job with QR!
Get a job (if you can), grow up and move forward my friend

Not sure the last time I heard of that in the States or U.K......... I think there would be more than a few complaints if there were pre boarding gynaecological examinations for females of child bearing age in the States or UK
