Aside from the fact that there are numerous stories out there about abuse from UK Border Force or USCBP, they simply wouldn't carry out anything like this violation. The closest you would get would be inspections for drug smuggling, but it would not be done at random. There would have to be grounds for suspicion and other factors, such as the women already having drugs in her possession. Even in that situation she would have the right to privacy and legal protection from abuse too. Clearly No such things in Doha.

Surely it would have been better to check CCTV, ask crew and staff to be on the look out for distressed, unwell women who are struggling to walk, as one might expect after giving birth prematurely in an airport bathroom. It's completely unfathomable why the authorities decided to go straight to examining what now appears to be dozens of innocent women in the most intrusive way possible. At the end of the day the woman has now left Qatar and is very unlikely to be found, we don't know the circumstances which led to her leaving a baby in the bathroom bins, but if she thought it was her best option then the alternative must have been truly horrific.

What has happened in Doha is clearly a totally indefensible situation and one which now appears to be growing legs and rightly so. I hope each and every woman involved comes forward and the Qatari government (note I don't necessarily blame QR as I doubt they had much say in it) are made to compensate.

Would like to see your reaction if the same thing happened to your wife or daughter. Normal countries like the UK and US don't allow this kind of medieval behaviour. You are out of your mind

Awful! But what does this have to do with salary reductions and redundancies? Isn’t it worth its own thread?

It shows how the company is led, exactly the same way.
So imagine what QR can do against their staff, crew members, Captains.
What a disgrace...

Remember the case of the Drunk CC found outside Her accommodation? How an internal email with her picture was sent by the VP? How she was humiliated? But this story is gaining momentum now, These were “State Authorities “ who took this action hence a “State Policy” to be considered.

There is a separate thread for that. Perhaps you could direct your thoughts there.

Back to the devastating state of play for all QR boys & girls.

I have heard about 100 A330 crew gone this week.

Since couple of days CC are getting calls who are active flying in Doha to visit Tower 2, & are being made redundant...
not surprised A330 Crew is part of it since there are surplus Deck Crew & all Pax A330 are grounded apart from 4 A330 Freighters..
Sad days!

Sounds ominous then for the A330 pilots, hopefully they'll switch them to A350 use this quiet time to do conversion courses.

I've heard that the VP flight ops was removed from his office and sent back to his basic line captain position, is that true ? I guess they used him to take care of that dirty whatsapp job then replaced him with someone else.

"Zavatta" is just an asshole, the CFOO muppet, with absolut no consideration to pilots and Captains, he made his path thru only by playing its dirty game. That guy remind me the famous ex VPFO

More redundancies this week, 320, 330 and 787 guys with roster changed to TBN, very sad indeed, in the 380 fleet they only kept the few slaimy xxxlickrs that were orbiting in the office every day, no surprise.
No news concerning the ex vp flt ops and the pilots he protected and facilitated so far, they managed to escape the redundancy process thanks to him, rumors are that he resigned (or was asked to resign qr style)

Clean up

Good to know the Sicilian hitman got the shaft. They made him do the dirty work, as usual, then dumped him. Waiting now to see all his protégées go down the drain with him.

This whole thing sounds vile, it doesn't cost anything to be more humane when carrying out redundancies.

If you lost your job don’t take it back with colleagues who are a bit luckier than you..redundancies are not over and we are all stressed!
Don’t pretend and don’t embarass yourself! You wished you had a job in QR!
Get a job (if you can) and move forward!

What about trainers redundancies?
Any update, the feedback from training management is that trainers will not be affected unless the fleet is not utilized at all

The management already knows everything, a more specific letter with details will be sent shortly to the big boss and possibly via the 'snitch channel' whistleblower internal email, just wait and see. I still work here and I can't afford to lose this job, someone else will do it. Great pilots have been sent home instead of others, that is completely unfair, I know them personally, what a shame.

No one is immune” I have heard a review will happen every 2 months to see if to increase the frequency or reduce this will decide if more redundancies to follow.. But More tough times ahead that includes more salary reduction .. 😖
