Guys any news about new joiner's contracts after 09/2021? I mean do they still ask to sign 25% less contract but pay full salary? Or again how it used to be?

As far as I heard new joiners are still to sign deducted salary. And it will be the same until the spring.

320, 787, 777 pilots fly like horses but not many pilots get invitations to rejoin. This company will never manage to have a roster of 70 hours a month for pilots. a roster with 11 days off per month and 70 hours of flying sounds unmanageable for QR.
especially 320 sucks now, 7 days off average

Very short notice. In some cases 2 or 3 days!

Just wondering/out of curiosity, how much time do you guys fly on long haul a month on the new FDTL? I believe rest time is not counted towards paid/FTL block?

I’ve heard that the British Airways 777 pilots declined the invitation to work in qr, good to know.
I think nobody will ever trust this company again after all they did to their pilots.
I think they’ll go back to what they were, the last choice in the ME.

Paying overtime is cheaper than to have more pilots. Probably why they do it.

i’ve seen few 350 rosters with 180hrs BLOCK in 30 days. I believe the same happened on the 777. And with a LPC/OPC between.

But no worry gaptain, you’re legal! Btw, you have a new LMS about human trafficking. Your professionalism is appreciated.

Apparently, only until you discover the opportunity of not paying for overtime.

180 ?
Personally 100 hrs of ULR/LR itself is killing, but that 10 BDO was a breather. I can't imagine living on 160-180 with no BDO !
Nevertheless they'll get 20-30k applications when they open up.

My first 12 months with a UK LCC several years ago I flew 220 block hours....

That's 5 weeks at QRs current rate 🤔 needless to say, they will be recruiting soon as nobody is going to put up with that for too much longer
