Flight benefits for Qatar Airways employees

I am seriously considering working for Qatar Airways but don't seem to be able to find out what kind of flight benefits they offer for their employees and family.
Anyone who know more about this or if they even offer flight benefits?
I know it is not the most important part of the contract but all other airlines offer it!!
Thanks..

yeah, you get free flights but you have to give out a few drinks/food and clear away a bag of vomit to get the free flights, and the destination probably isn't where you would choose but hey its a flight.........mmmmm free flight to Thiruvananthapuram.....nice..

u will get free flights but they will charge you some percentage (within 6 months- 1 time) i heard like that.

huh??FOC ticket once a yr and the rest will be rebated travel on subload basis..........

life's too short so make the most of it, you only live but once.......

Think-Twice

Each employee is entitled to a free return air ticket within QR network for herself/himself, and her/his family (depending on one's grade). Which class they are entitled to is also dependent on the grade.

They are also entitled to purchase discounted tickets, but that is on sub-load basis meaning the the seats are not confirmed and one could be bumped out in the last moment in case flights are full. It's an industry practice.

Hi all
I just signed with QR for a senior position.
I was wondering if I can have a discounted buddy ticket (for my friends etc.) or it's only for me and my very close parents?
Cheers

nope yazz771. you can avail discounted tickets only for your family members. i don't think the whole family can even get discounted tickets. you have to choose between your mother and father and one from your siblings. BTW you should know these things!

cheers,

ty for the info,
The HR recruiters are hiding so many details and I felt that they were in a rush to make me sign the contract, are you a qatar airways employee?
If yes I have another question:
In my contract I have this weird clause about housing saying that I have either 3.500qt housing allowance or an housing offred by the company and this is SOLILY a decision from QR which means that if they don't provide housing I will spend 20% of my salary on housing (apparentely I will need 10k to have a descent flat) what do you think?
who.am.i plz keep in touch would be nice if you're looking for friends with same interests.
Cheers

first of all, I'm not a QA employee, just a QL junkie. It just happened that i have friends from QA and EY. why would they hide so many details from you? On the contract, you will find everything you need to know about your salary and benefits so I'm wondering why you are so confused. I don't recommend you to take the housing allowance hence accept the accommodation that QA will provide for you. If you are a bachelor, you don't need to spend 10K for a flat. I don't get most of your point. Sorry.

cheers,

Hello Paul
The problem is that if they can't find me an appartment I will end up paying it my own which will cost much more than 3500Qrs they're offred.
Here comes my question: is it possible that they don't provide housing?
Cheers
