Joining Qatar Airways (QR) - all you need to know about it (threads merged)
Just curious as to how Qatar Airways views self sponsored type ratings on the A320 or A330. Is it frowned upon or would it help. It seems to be the way of Europe these days.

Where i come from it wold put you in the NO! pile without question.

Ok 300 views andno response. All i am wondering is whether it would help or if it is frowned upon?

Rumour is that Qatar is not taking, at this time, non-rated pilots.

I presume that your aspirations to be "speedbird 744" didn't quite work out for you then? :rolleyes:

ih speedbird
I have attended the interview for S/O one year ago already and still didn't get any answer from QA,anyway!!!
the exam is easy,16questions all basic(QNH,IAS,Altimeter....ect),then other 16questions about personality and an interview talking about yourself,that's it!!!!!
Good luck

Qatar allowances
Anyone else heard the latest that those that have been paid the 50,000 QAR one off furniture allowance have to pay it back because QA are reverting to the old system of 900 QAR PCM?

Taking it back in 2 installments I heard

If that's the value they place on the bond I signed for that money... They shouldn't expect people to honour their bonds when they leave.

NoJoke 27th Aug 2007 18:16

Can't figure out why some have received it and others not. I think they are worried we might scarper with the loot :}

Spirit1 27th Aug 2007 20:38

Taking back the furniture allowance means that the bond signed is worth nothing.
What if you have used all the money:{
And what about the type rating bond?
Personally I will not take that serious anymore an leave when ever I fell for it.:ok:
But lets see. Thinks can not be worst than my September roster.:eek:

See u out there.

so now after you announced to all off us a few weeks ago that the CP told you about an increase of..28%..:ugh:..the question is ..Who is the liar: you or the CP....?:hmm:

Anyway (once again),the management has showed his total lack of consideration for crew..(Qatar has the highest inflation rate in the gulf(14%), and last but not least..the local currency has DRAMATICLY dropped v/s all major currencies (except the U$ dollar...)but who really cares here...,I´m not even talk about the meal allowance(paid in Qatari riyal) that should have been updated long time ago,to cope with this problem as well...!!

There must be some really un capable and non professional people in our management.

We are struggling to find enough crews to man all fleets.

Some people fly 100 hours, others only 40.

The standard of the whole airline has fallen dramatically. This can be seen on the number of incidents on the rise! We all know its only a matter of time…

The new CPT has been suckered into politics from the very first day he started. I am sure the man has some very good ideas and a knowledgeable background, but I am convinced he never saw these games coming! This can be seen in his latest ACN regarding refreshments in the sim centre.
Dear sir, this has been going on for at least a year! CAE made an original contract with QR to provide the crews doing training in their A330 sim with refreshments. Gradually other people started occupying the building, all feeding on the CAE supplies!
CAE warned QR on several occasions. Even the CEO was informed but he disapproved the installation of a proper kitchen. In the meanwhile all the managers in flight ops pretended nothing was wrong!
So now, after a year, CAE pulled the plug. GOOD ON THEM! Unfortunately everybody knows this story in detail, so by issuing a memo that all this happened suddenly and that QR was looking into it now, the new CP T was fooled into loosing a bit of his credibility. A shame really, but to be expected….

No salary increase….why should they? We got one last year so shut up! Who cares about inflation, exchange rates, lies about never coming provident funds, pay differences between fleets, etc…..

To end this ranting session, I am sure most of you have seen that disgraceful message regarding the contribution to Capt Renatos family. The manager who wrote this ( and we all know his name) should be dying of shame!
I am sure, when written properly, most of us would gladly help out his family with all our hart! But when I read a letter, telling me I have to contribute a minimum of 500QR, without any more explanation….well in short: FORGET IT!
I will find other ways to help his family if needed!
And I am not alone in this…just look at all the letters in the waste bin!

Maybe management should start thinking a little bit more in the future….maybe Capt Renatos case should be seen as proof to all of us that this company does not care about our life! Just make sure that you have covered yourself and your family in case something happens to you…because we all know, QR will not give a damn!

This isn't about you my friend or about satisfying your ego, OK? I agree the notice isn't written in appealing manner, so what? I'm sorry to tell you but it's a bit childish the way you perceive the whole issue. If you're a family man put your ego aside and help the family, would you?
