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

Cavalry, what is your experience and position? Trying to understand who they offer the 330 to. Thx and good luck

GCA104, depends for how long and how tough you are.
I see you re from Italy, if living in one of the big cities served by qr, then I would say its doable for the bonding period. Having said that, you definitely will grow much older.
But forget the 7 on 5 off kind of deal. Its gonna be more something like 5 on 3 off - 4 on 1 off - 3 on 4 off -5 on 2 off and so on. If your only bidding is for the days off, then you might get lucky with a 5 or even 6 days off in a row in a month, but you cant count on it.

How are the rosters on the 777 at the moment, and is the trend positive or negative?

Also, is it possible to live elsewhere in the gulf? I heard that to receive the accommodation allowance you need to apply and wait.

Thank you.

Luckyheader, the rosters come more in waves, one or two good rosters then a really bad one hits you over the head. It is definitely possible to live elsewhere in the gulf on a 777. The waiting period to move out of the comp acc is rather longer theses days, count anything between 6 months and a year.

As many have mentioned, all pilots are DOH based. If you want to see your family on a regular basis you should plan to bring them here. Hoping or wishing for that block of days off to go "home" will only lead to frustration. Don't build your family harmony on wishful thinking.

I applied for non type rated Boeing FO, and got under review about 2 weeks ago. Is it too soon to be making excuses or is that quite normal? 7,000 737

Hey folks, maybe some of you will help us about our questions in our heads,me and my husband.

My husband has recently applied for TR F/O (A320) at QR and we have almost read all forum entries,articles,experiences etc. and watched all youtube videos about QR and Doha. There are alot of informations but generally not up to date ones.

i will be very happy if someone helps me:)

*current salary (base-housing-etc--is there any convenience,which is provided by QR,about buying car? )

*accomodation (do we have to stay company accomodation? is it mandatory ? can we move another house in another district?)

*what is company accomodation like?

*in some videos women and men wear shorts but in some articles it is mentioned that we should cover knees and shoulders both.how we should wear?

*i think liquor permit is provided by companies . what about QR? (in an article i read QR dont provide liquor permit for cabin crew)

*what kind of a health insurance or health care system we have when we start working/living?

*can i bring some medicines for flu-reflux-birth control-etc with me in my luggage when we are moving?

:rolleyes:

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME :ok:

most of these questions are answered in Wellcome package once you get the job offer.

Sjef van Oekel 25th Apr 2017 08:43

A lot of new routes announced today. Does anyone know when the 787-9 will be delivered?

APU_inop 25th Apr 2017 09:05


*current salary (base-housing-etc--is there any convenience,which is provided by QR,about buying car? )
Housing + 25000 QAR + 104QAR per hour flown roughly
Cars are priced similarly to Europe, if you're from Turkey, cars are generally 1/3 to 1/4 of the price of what you have to pay in Turkey

*accomodation (do we have to stay company accomodation? is it mandatory ? can we move another house in another district?)
You get accomodation, it's usually OK, not difficult to move, you may move out and take the money instead but there's a couple of months of waiting time.


*what is company accomodation like?
Depends on your expectations but mostly pretty new, furnished and clean.

*in some videos women and men wear shorts but in some articles it is mentioned that we should cover knees and shoulders both.how we should wear?
Don't worry, you may wear the same thing as you wear in Europe but some modesty doesn't hurt. Some restrictions at public beaches though.

*i think liquor permit is provided by companies . what about QR? (in an article i read QR dont provide liquor permit for cabin crew)
You get a liquor permit and can shop alcohol however alocohol is pretty expensive. A beer is €1.5 to €2.5. Raki is 82QAR. The variety is not bad though. Drinking outside at bars is very expensive, a beer for under €10 won't be easy to find.

*what kind of a health insurance or health care system we have when we start working/living?
You get an Allianz-card, one card per family member. Thank god I have never had to use it but the policy is pretty generous except for one thing, it does not cover birth costs. The public health care is said to be very good and cheap by the ones who have used it that I know. Public health care covers birth.

*can i bring some medicines for flu-reflux-birth control-etc with me in my luggage when we are moving?
No problems, just bring the prescription to be sure.

thank you for answers..

MJtheBest 25th Apr 2017 09:42

Thans for all. Couldn't find the options for PM.
I would like to know something that need to be attested like driver license and marriage certificate ect.
How long will it take till the final line check? Is it possible to get some day-offs?
And how about the exit permit for pilots now?
Appreciated for any point of view.

Any rumours about 737MAX joining the fleet?

I dont see them adding the 737 to the mainline fleet.....serious investment plans in Italy/ and India are the most likely scenario for the 737.

Avenger 26th Apr 2017 11:08

For wives the biggest issue is boredom after a while, many newcomers thought they could commute, this is not what the company is looking towards and be prepared to "live" in the area. Wives can enter and exit without restrictions as often as they like, some choose to live back in Europe..but be prepared to add cash to get a reasonable place to live if you don't like what the company provided.
