My friends at QR all wished to be in EK, none of the EK guys I know wants to work at QR so that sums it up.

Is there a no poaching agreement between Emirates and Qatar?
Don't recall flying with any guys who came from QR to EK.

Hello everyone. This forum has been really so helpful . Could anyone enlighten on when do we know what fleet we might be put on. As the position says Airbus type rated FO , its kind of not very clear which fleet they want to hire for.

Is there anybody who can generously give me a glimpse about how the A320 schedule looks like in Qatar?
1. If I actively bid for Europe do I get many layovers in Europe? possibly 4~or more times a month?
2. How long are the stays in the layover station? Is it up to 24hours stay or possibly longer than that in many cases?
3. How many quick turns and layovers can I expect in normal month?
4. In this post some guy said A320 guys fly about 65 hours a month . Is it still true?

Iíve been away from Qatar for 3 years so not really current but there was a poaching agreement for a long time- it went away during the blockade- not sure if it came back?

I was in Qatar up to 3 years ago and involved with recruiting- believe the policy then was ok for tattoos as long as covered by uniform

Maybe. Few of my friends who were Boeing rated didnít receive any reply even after 3 weeks of the interview in Doha and status still unchanged. Whereas Airbus FOs are getting emails within 7-10 days..

My friend passed the assessment less than 2 weeks ago and has been placed in the holding pool. Airbus candidates got the job straight away.

The main need now is for Airbus rated guys since Qatar Airways reached an agreement with Airbus on the A350 issue and the 30+ airframes grounded will be back in the air (plus another 19 to be delivered) over the next months, so they have an immediate need for Airbus rated pilots.

Boeing guys will have to wait a bit until they sort out all the manpower requirements for the next fiscal year (which starts on April)

Xiamen airlines is not happy about this information. First Airbus A321neo Arrives At All-Boeing Xiamen Airlines (simpleflying.com)

I applied in January and got the invitation for the online test within 5 days and the invitation for the assessment in Doha a week after completing the online test. 2,5 weeks from application to invitation to Doha.
