I'm also standing by for my "offer of employment". Could you guys point out what sort of info is included in this? I.e.

-course start date?
-accommodation details?
-entry visas for self+family?
-relocation tickets/ air cargo?

Just curious since it's taken a bit of time to get it.

Commuting to europe
 
Guys what are the chances of keeping the family in the EU while working as FO 777 (7on 5 off kinda deal)?

APU_inop 9th Apr 2017 16:50

Very difficult I would say, 1 week every 2 months for annual vacation and another 4 days per month as guaranteed consecutive off days. Other than that, there are no guarantees.

Silver68 9th Apr 2017 17:20

Can anyone help. I have an interview with Qatar for DEC 787. I'm led to believe that I could expect 6 days off in a row p/m. I understand that this is subject to rostering requirements, but is it usually achievable or just a recruitment carrot?

Also, any kind soul prepared to say how the 787 rosters are. Any help would be really appreciated.

I've applied for the same type of job Silver68, and am showing "screened". Any idea what this means? I've got a friend there on the 787, I'll see if he can email a roster.

Tried to PM you to no avail.

Regards Tonker

Silver68 10th Apr 2017 10:16

If its any consolation, i don't even show screened. Once i did the online application etc, I was offered an interview date.

tonker 10th Apr 2017 11:28

Well that doesn't fill me with any more hope unfortunately. Screened could mean Jason Bourne is filled in to do my interview or something !!!!!

It's a fairly quiet roster on the 787 from the brief conversations I've had with folk there. Relatively quiet I should have said.

Silver68 10th Apr 2017 11:39

It's not so much that I need a quiet roster, in fact i've never had one, but I would like to get home more than once every 3 months. If the possibility of 6 days off per month is a real one, then I'm happy.

Whats your experience/ background?

Obbie 10th Apr 2017 11:43

Fairly quiet ?????

787 Captains are doing 85 to 90 hours a month minimum.
You can expect 4 days off in a row maximum, thats all.

Fairly quiet he says, hahaha.

Silver68 10th Apr 2017 11:51

Obbie, thanks for the input. So the 6 days off mentioned is not really on offer, shame.

Would you be prepared to offer any more insight to the Qatar 787 gig?

tonker 10th Apr 2017 11:51

Relatively......

Special Captian - a fictitious term, used in a post, in an attempt to create the
illusion of accuracy or truth, when in fact neither are present.

Obbie 11th Apr 2017 16:57

What were his various time limit windows at ?
What was his satisfaction ranking for the last three months ?
Did he have training scheduled in the next 90 days ?
Did he have leave in the previous 30 or next 30 days ?

A lot more than simply what you bid goes into roster building.
There are no "Special Captains"
There are only Captains who think they are special.

APU_inop 12th Apr 2017 23:51

Depends on the aircraft type.
Another company in the region is going to start offering commuting contracts, 4w on 2w off or something like that and QR will have to follow in the near future.
Other than that, it is a non commuting gig, don't let anyone make you believe anything else or you might end up being unhappy.

casablanca 13th Apr 2017 02:38

I agree....depending on fleet the schedule can be quite nice and you may get home often.
That being said it is not a commuting contract so if you come expecting that you will become very frustrated

QR Rosters
 
Hi all,

Looking for any info on the A330 roster at QR. Recently offered a position and struggling to find current roster info. If anyone can maybe share a typical roster, block hours, destinations, pax/freight etc. Anything would be appreciated.

Cheers

Same here, but to B787. Have seen some rosters of the T7, but none of Dreamliner. Any heads up would be appreciated.
