I think it would be useful for any of us that have experienced QR to consider the staff number as more of a serial number. Everyone is simply a device used to keep the machinery in motion. Remove your emotional element, ie: loyalty, etc, and maybe things will make more sense to you. Some tyres on the aircraft get retreaded and some don't. Some brakes get overhauled, some do not. You get the idea, everyone is just a unit part in the machine.

Don’t be surprised if there’s a serious incident before 2022 - perverse standards (if any) in training and no oversight from the authorities!

Why 2022? Unfortunately bean counters and fleet deal only with stats . Let's wait and see if it happens according to your pilot prediction.

Silver68 & xwind16,

Sorry to see you go gentlemen. It may be of little comfort but at least you won’t have to share the FD with this bunch.

Wishing you a prosperous 2021. Blue skies and tailwinds skippers. Hope they call you back when things pick up.

A Crew mentioned that Customers are complaining and angry onboard.. A Awful Experience! Flights that are being cancelled or Misconnection pax are stuck at the airport for 8-15hrs as airport hotel is full and borders are closed.. Ground staff is nonexistent because majority have been laid off as well..
A airline that markets itself as flying all through out the pandemic is now even losing its “Precious Customers”..

heard from my friend in doha, he got called last thursday and given termination letter. he was on 777.
its really sad whats happening in the aviation circle in 2021. he says more termination is coming on 350/777 as the pax load is so low and qr is also losing money big time.
whats is more sad is that, only early december he was told that his employment will not be affected but 3 weeks down the line its a diff story.

I am sooo sorry for your friend and all that are going through this, Every day I’m mentally prepared to leave when my turn comes, what’s more depressing is that there is no clear communication by The Managers of Incompetent HR...
Ofcourse QR is losing money only because Chief is stubborn and keeps on opening new Routes EG SFO & Soon Seattle with Pax numbers no more that 100 at an average, A350 or B777 both will fly under load meaning Per seat profit is Nil, this all is happening only because they want to Market as the leading airline in Pandemic..

I am also sorry about your friend. That is a good lesson for all of us. Never believe or count on what those unreliable crooks say. It is quite fun to see empty airplanes flying overseas just because of "ego" while losing tons of money instead of treating the correct way people with families who proved through the times that they were their working horses here. But they don't care and never will

Still not over

Redundancies are ongoing. Some 320 FOs got the calls just yesterday. There is no end in sight.

A load of 330 guys were dumped before Xmas. There was only 4 330 freighters left after the pax was grounded.

The 4 freighters are supposed to be leaving the fleet in February regardless as they have a new home.
