Its already started with Aircraft Mechanics, the ones you were laid off couple of months ago are coming back with 50% less basic salary than they were offered...
And Yes I do agree that Pilots are ready to jump the ship even if they don’t have jobs to go too..
Sandpit is not the same anymore.

Yep, can get down similar as EK medical "benefit". But in the other hand, EK doesn't have the same toxic environment (in sandpit terms of course ), crappy salary (considering the "solidarity" of the expats) nor the pleasure of living in mini-riyadh.

Beleive me everything that Aviateur86 had said is exactly reliable and i am telling you because i work in QR i don’t even post anymore because i will be repeating the same as Aviateur86 and Glider 7 So there is no point for me to repeat the post all over again.

Plus is true i know personally two guys very low performance pilots that were safe by one management. Everything that is written here is not even rumors is the reality of this company very sad but true, as someone said when everything pick up again many will leave including myself.

True, this profile is quite new, was created because of serious privacy concerns due to the QR regime, yet, 100 times more reliable than mister captainx, what I say is the truth, I'm still here and I see horrible things

Al Baker changes tone: Qatar Airways to continue taking aircraft

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Akbar Al Baker has seemingly changed his tone in regards to aircraft orders, as the airline will continue to take aircraft, according to a recently released statement by the CEO.

“We will continue to take every single airplane that we have ordered from the both [Airbus and Boeing – ed. note] manufacturers because in Qatar Airways, we are very prudent in the way we place our aircraft orders and our requirements,“ was quoted as saying on a message on the airline‘s Twitter.

... what about pilots?

100% Yes, irony is Top Management is still heavy, New VPs are being hired, Extra managers are not being let go but accommodated and Emails start coming to US with Covid Cost Cutting measures Etc Etc.
i guess all the Goodwill is required from the Flight deck Cabin Crew & Aircraft Engineers & not the Top Management Staff..

Looks like the A330 fleet will disappear. Majority of the A330 pilots got TBN on the roster yesterday

Logically Yes it is unfortunately... This is just my gut feeling....
Some might switch to A350 but again one can’t predict...
