All correct bar the "seniority being respected" thing.

Seniority was never respected, it was a perfect opportunity for the managers to take out their grudge on Pilots they didn’t liked, & Kept the ones they wanted.. Plain & Simple!

Dear Alatriste, seniority was not respected. Are you aware that fos who joined on the 787 a year ago are still flying? with minimum experience and qualifications especially compared to your experience. Please make good research before posting here. I don't think they care at all. Middle East will not be home again for all of us because nobody will feel safe here. I still have my job but trying to leave asap because I might be included in one of the new rounds with redundancies as I am sure they will do more starting next year. Better go somewhere that is safe in terms of job security rather than make a bit more money and live every day at risk. QR was not a safe employer even before the covid19. I wish all people realize that in the future. It is a shame for an airline that belongs to the richest country to treat their employees like that. I was talking with a friend recently on the other side of the ocean. Even cheap regional airlines at the US have not made any redundancies so far. It is a shame for QR and for the people who committed to come here and serve them. There were many solutions but they didn't care at all. Just press the button with your number and you are out. zero respect to your age and experience

Dear colleagues,
I only wanted to emphasize that generally speaking they didn´t keep the new captains, even though we were the cheapest ones, as some previous post affirmed.
My sympathy for those not fairly treated.
All the best in these turbulent times.

Air traffic controllers were treated the same as crews in Qatar. Many of them were made redundant independent of seniority, it was randomly done. No explanation at all. Very sad times.

Totally predictable! This is never ending, letting go of staff in installments..
Brace for impact!
Bags are packed.

They should at least put pilots on a retainer salary and let them return to their home country for a time when things pick up which will surely come. Seems a waste to just make guys redundant and all the bitterness that entails.

This would have had been a logical solution but Logic is missing in every decision that has been taken since March 2020.

Bridges have been burnt etc etc!!!

IF someone was offering me my old job back, I wouldn't care! I would be gone and take it tomorrow.

I would think that plenty of others would too!

The word “logic” is non-existent in the ME dictionaires

Incident is bound to happen, this is writing on the wall, These dumb fools are playing with fire, experience is what is important in the end.

Friend of mine, relatively new 787 FO given the bad news this morning. At least he got to miss Xmas and New Year’s Eve!

Watching the airframes aloft, when I got the push it was zero and today it averages about 17 airborne. Give it 6 months of vaccine and together with the World Cup it doesn’t make sense.

Really sorry to hear about your Friend & All the other colleagues, it doesn’t make sense at all, vaccination has started already, I really don’t understand what are these managers and management doing in Tower 1 2 3.
They had no plan whatsoever from the start of border closures uptil now.
