If redundancies are needed in any company, they need to be done quickly, so that the remaining staff aren't living with the threat of the axe over their heads and can move forward with some certainty. Dragging the process out only causes prolonged misery to everyone.

So if you're stuck out of Qatar you could be ok from redundancy? That sounds a bit strange the whole process.

Can you be fired whilst out of the country? It would be impossible to complete the formalities for one. Who's to say those pilots who are locked out of Qatar will survive the cull upon their return.

On the contrary Staff is resigning outstation” Many CC have resigned & were told by HR/Welfare their Friends can collect their stuff & EOSB.
Haven’t heard as of today Employee being laid off while stuck outstation...
I did a month or so was told that some Chinese & Korean Crew were laid off outstation but I can’t verify it”

Have QR actually informed the pilots there of the selection criteria for redundancy or is it just totally random still?

Nope nothing told. Criteria, fleet, how many, how long for the redundancy programme to continue, no communication. Even people who had the meetings, upon asking the same questions were told sorry can’t disclose.

That's pretty disgusting to make people redundant and not inform them as to the reasons why they were selected. It doesn't take much effort to show a bit of professionalism and transparency in the process and in turn some compassion toward their employees. Good luck to all in QR, at least they seem to be flying more than most.

'Fireside chat' with AAB

...
Aviation Week is offering a complimentary interactive webinar 'fireside chat' with the CEO of QR - 21st July.

From their flyer -

"Since its launch in 1997, Doha-based Qatar Airways has grown to connect more than 160 destinations and become a 5-star airline that sets industry standards in passenger service.

Group CEO Akbar Al Baker has been instrumental in shaping the development of Qatar Airways and is an industry influencer. Throughout the pandemic, he has transitioned Qatar Airways by introducing dedicated cargo and repatriation flights, restoring scheduled routes and launching hygiene safety initiatives to reassure and safeguard passengers and employees.

Mr. Al Baker serves on the IATA Board of Governors, which he chaired in 2018-2019. He is also a member of the Executive Committee of the Arab Air Carriers Organisation and a non-executive Director of Heathrow Airport Holdings. A recipient of France’s Legion of Honor in recognition of his leadership in the aviation industry, Mr. Al Baker also holds a private pilot license.

Join Aviation Week Network as Mr. Al Baker provides his perspective on how the worldwide airline industry should position itself to best survive the global pandemic and return to strength."

Your modus operandi is resourceful but did you take into account that there is a significant proportion of Captains (mixed fleet trainers) who appear on both lists ie 380/320 etc.

So as Qatar opens its borders to resident permit holders on 1st August, how many of the stranded pilots have been notified they may return?

UAL 777 - Thanks for trying, and especially for reporting back. I will look to see how AWST spins it.

The problem here is QR being the Sponsor has to apply for return permit and this can only happen from 1st of August, most probably if stranded pilots are to come in, they would start coming in from 2nd week of August because no one knows how long does the permit take to get issued...

Anyone has thoughts about more Doha pilots getting the chop after Eid holiday? Me yes I thinks so, but I'm speaking to a lot of optimistic people around the compound who are adamant the focus will now be on the outsiders.

Interesting. What makes you so adamant in this regard?
