Reducing fleet
Qatar are just about to announce a reduction in fleet size not an increase. They Lost a significant amount of money this year and the CEO has advised that there will be a reduction of employees/ fleet. Perhaps the airspace closures for the last 2 years finally starting to bite.

Where can we find more info about this? Anyone else can confirm mentioned?

Yes, hiring is about to stop until Coronavirus situation ends. Losses close to $1 billion for fiscal year ending in March...


fepilot 27th Feb 2020 10:26

It is not just this. They have expanded rapidly for a long time and been making huge losses. The ceo will announce soon redundancies. They cannot fly into Saudi, uae airspace and this is unlikely to change. Really there will not be an improvement for a while. Ethiad and Emirates also feeling the pinch in general and recruitment has stopped. New low cost carriers are opening like wizz air in Abu Dhabi May be worth trying them....

fepilot -- What is your source of information?

flyhigh85 28th Feb 2020 13:24

Where do u see their T&C?

On their website you can just apply but I want to see what I am applying for.

I am a FO TR 787, does that mean I will fly 787 for Qatar or they can put me on a different type?

Does the assesment take long time (from application until starting if successfull)?

Thanks in advance for answers👍🏻

Qatar Airways stopped the recruitment for the time being.

737driverUS 29th Feb 2020 05:29

so if we have a upcoming assessment in Doha. As per your analysis or update, if the hiring is stopped, do you think they will stop me from coming for the assessment or still interview me and if i do pass the assessment, i will be placed in the pool. I applied for the Boeing Type Rated FO position.

FlyHigher 29th Feb 2020 07:03

To be honest, I don't know. But, in my opinion, pilots who have started the process will continue. I believe they stopped the recruitment for new candidates, not the hiring of those already on the pool or in the process.

Anyone with a more accurate information feel free to correct me.

Historically seen, Qatar has always welcomed the ones to Doha that have an assessment. If there's a need, they've been put in a conversion course and if not, they would rot away in a holding pool (even after a positive assessment) for months or even years. An ex colleague waited 1 1/2 years until he was finally offered a starting date last year in January.

Heard there's an email sent out about them doing retrenchment but not publicised as usual cus it's Dohell. Anyone can shed some light on this?

SEMORO350 3rd Mar 2020 04:02

hey guys!
I applied to QR last month, for the rated FO.
i'm rated on Boeing 787 as well as on the A32S, any advice on what's the best route to take? (better chance on upgrades, roasters, flights...)
Boeing or Airbus?

aBlon 3rd Mar 2020 20:19

i would like to ask you guys as i failed last year the online test after a 10 days preparation through pilots latestjobs website, and actually was quite similar. Is anybody successful candidate recommending something else for better preparation?

How's the dating scene for a single guy in Doha?

bananaman2 5th Mar 2020 13:59

Not the best. Dubai would be better for that.

B777FO 6th Mar 2020 11:11

Do they accept the Jeppesen FAA format logbook or it must be FCL .50 format?

jadrolinija 6th Mar 2020 11:36

It must be FCL. 50 format upon joining airline. That's what I was told a year ago on assesment.

Count von Altibar 6th Mar 2020 14:42

I'm petty sure all recruitment has been halted at the moment, don't see any pilot positions on QR website. The covid-19 plus the blockade taking its toal sadly.

Thanks. I will buy a new one and write down there my last 500 airline hours and thats it.

B777FO 8th Mar 2020 23:02

Another question. Is it a shared house offered by the company? If alone, how many sqms?, beds...
