next 777 will come in Sept. QA was suppose to recieve 15 by year end BUT the strike at Boeing cause a problem and now QA will recieve 12, B777's by years end. presently there are 8, B777 aircraft on line.
32, A330 variants 4, A346 around 25 or so A320 Variants with more narrow bodies to come this year as well. also 4, A300-600 cargo aircraft.
these are the general rough figures give or take a aircraft or 2.

I guess they are all right with the type rated guys they collected during their road shows and didn't bother to give an update which could have been useful for those who took leaves on the feb dates. Within a month we could see their difference of attitude depending on whether they need or doesn't need you.

Call, call and call! HR and Flightops are on two different planets :ugh:

hi i have just seen your post. i have just completed all stages of the interview process and i am just waiting to wait for a reply. i have read so many bad reviews about qatar airways. do you still work for them and if so what is your oppinion of the company. thanks

Pin Head 16th Apr 2009 18:27

are they accepting applications on the website? I am finding it very difficult to work my way around it!

widebody300er 16th Apr 2009 18:30

How do you get a hold of anyone from QR HR?? was asked what airport I would like to fly out of way back in Feb for a sim evaluation... can't seem to get an answer from anybody..:ugh:

Sonic Bam 17th Apr 2009 08:21

Good luck when you do get an answer from them. Don't ask a second time, even if the answer doesn't make sense, because you will get a different answer and if it still doesn't make sense and you ask for clarification you will get a third, different answer even if you are asking the same person three times.

QR's HR department are in a mess.

shneidertrophy 17th Apr 2009 09:18

HR has, at the moment, nothing to do with the initial hiring process of the pilots.

It is all done by a training captain and his team (?).

QR is not that bad guys. It just has exactly the same issues as any other carrier in this region. They all lie and cheat, so be prepared!

Do your homework and do not believe in fairy tales! (YOU WILL NOT GET A FAST TRACK UPGRADE, YOU WILL NOT GET A 4 BEDROOM VILLA AS A FO, YES IT IS A DESERT COUNTRY SO EXPECT LOTS OF DUST, THE FLEET YOU WILL BE HIRED ON WILL BE YOUR HOME FOR AT LEAST 2 YEARS,...)

But once you are in, the flying is fun(most of the time anyway) and the money will be in the account every month! And that is worth a lot in this worldwide crisis dont you think?

Qatar Interview this week
 
Hi, there !
Anybody in Doha for the Qatar Interview this week until Friday 24th ?
Will stay in the Ramada. Would be nice to have a chat.
Take care and all the best to you.

S.F.L.Y 21st Apr 2009 16:15

Like many who were supposed to go for interview in Feb we didn't hear anything from QR for the past 3 months. It's nice to see they are resuming interviews with new candidates...

widebody300er 21st Apr 2009 21:53

I was told hiring has been put off till June or July...:ugh:

ArkPilot 22nd Apr 2009 00:42

Not really. ;)

widebody300er 22nd Apr 2009 01:09

Do you know when they will start doing interviews again? Was told they have lots of typed rated guys going through...

ArkPilot 22nd Apr 2009 05:47

I don't know when they will open the website for applications.

I do know they are still processing successful applicants from the SIN 2-6 MAR roadshow through their sim evals. I'm not sure of the percentages of type-rated versus non type-rated applicants.

I've heard classes on the 777 are commencing every week. Not sure about other a/c classes.
