the real bottleneck is 1- pilots leaving from airbus (now they might be waiting for the bonus, but after that lot of people will say goodbye, thanks the maltese guy for that too)
2- training capacity is limited.
3- no new planes coming
ongoing upgrades on Boeing is no guarantee for the future. They filled 787 with useless decs coming from Spicejet 737s. Also when the upgrades restarted they announced it as a NEW strategy. They have no policy for upgrade and it might stop anytime for any reason. The usual bull**** like dynamic industry and we need captains immediately, lack of training resources etc. None of it makes no sense anymore.
Regarding airbus fleet, upgrade is simply negligible. 2 per month if at all after the upgrade strategy (!) started.
A new joiner f/o is going to have approximately 800 people ahead of him. Mathematics says 400 months and that is if some other genius does not stop the upgrades from internal sources. If I were coming to Qatar Airways as an f/o today Id come to stay an f/o at least 12-15 years. This is no exaggeration,

Are they still doing assessments at QR? If so doesn't seem to make sense with such a substantial amount in the holding pool.

I asked because a friend of mine had total 2000 hrs and 1200 hrs on A320 got a start date pretty quickly after he finished the interview. Guess it's just chance or pretty random.

dear Burak, if you intend to leave Turkish airlines please reconsider your decision. Get your command as it is close to impossible in qr. I intend to resign after many years of service.
qr is regret. It will start with housing and continue with upgrade policy. For first officers upgrade never comes. Seriously, Id strongly suggest you reconsider. Go to Emirates if you can.

They have MPL program for the A320 so they are not very keen in hiring A320 only guys. Having A330 or A350 is now preffered.
