Hello Mmorel, Qr is not rehiring by seniority. 2 Cpts I know had only 6 months on the A330 before the Pandemic started. They are back in Qr doing a 777 full type rating. Don't you think it's a bit silly? Bond them for 3 years at an age of 63?

Hi,

yes, in that case, you are right. The mentality of this company will never change.

Just to be clear. The witch hunt on wattsapp groups was led by a lanky peice of Italian crap who rose up from the **** pipes of another airline and sucked his way up to the highest flight ops position.
The wattsapp groups were easy pickings for him.

How the Italian community let him still walk is a mystery.

Looks like qatar start hiring external pilot who type rated in B777/787, does it means that they already finish recalling redundant pilot?

Maybe all rated FOs on 777/787 that were made redundant have been called back.

To my last post, they are looking for pilot for all fleets and grades. So the ones that got redundant and did not receive a email until now..... yea then its goodbye....

Apparently the BOSS did not keep his promise.

I wonder how many applications will they get from recent 777 and 787 crew... Recency might be the biggest issue now...

It's awful how they treat pilots. I know some pilots who works more than 10 years without any sick days and they have not called them back.

You see? Exactly as I told you. Looking for type rated lads on 777/787, NTR will start later next year.
Wonder, how many SFO will stay in the company, if they are waiting 8+ years for the upgrade and company is still prioritizing Direct Entry Captains, who will require basically the same amount of training.
Also, many ex-Cathay Pacific and ex-Etihad 777s are coming.

Everybody, who was not called back, yet, had some other (maybe) unknown issue in his folder. It wasn’t a random pick.

Yep, recency is a big issue. Who has 12 months currency?!

They are just trying to get a pool of available pilots. No real new hiring yet. 12months current requirement is a joke. Maybe they put their hiring ads because EK just did so.

I don't think so. From what I heard people will be called for interview asap, ie by the end of december.

EK advertised "Expression of interest" for future requirements. QR posted a job vacancy. Both are two different adverts.

That really is a sad thing, Besides many of these guys have 1000s of 320/737 PIC time, and or unfortunately joined at wrong time.
