Scoured the internet for the info, not saying that I couldn't be blind and miss it, but I was not able to find any info on hiring/pay.

Just curious, anyone have any info?

I got a bunch of friends at Qatar, I know it is a very expensive country to live in. I the Cap is based around 13000 usd but it is all inclusive!!!

Emirates better

Friend, you might want to check pprune.com

A lot of Europeans in that forum, they seem to be very familiar with all the Midle East carriers. You won't like what you'll read about Qatar, I promise you. I've never read so much bad stuff about an airline. A bunch of their pilots are from India, Egypt, Malaysia, Thailand, and South America. They're having trouble attrackting Western pilots.

Emirates seems to be the best option in that region. Etihad is not bas as Qatar Airways.

As written above, Qatar is not the first choice in Gulf Airlines for the western expat. Latest breakdown on Emirates pilot nationalities shows:

British 13.1%
Australian 10.9%
Canadian 9.5%
American 7.5%
UAE National 7.1 %

I would put South African, New Zealand, Scandinavian countries, Germany, and Ireland high up on the list as well. Also lots from Malaysia and Brazil. Up to 81 separate nationalities at last count.

Would be interesting to compare that to Qatar and Etihad.

A little off topic (sorry) but speaking about diversity, would you say Cathay has the most?

No, not even close. They are majority Australian, British, Canadian and Hong Kong Chinese.

Sorry for jumping off topic but I'm about to spend a few months in and around Doha on Mil leave with Delta. Does Qatar Air allow jumpseaters to get around Europe on or do they participate in the ZED fares? Thanks if anyone knows and is willing to share. Haven't found much asking around the Delta campus.

ZED fares only...no jumpseats.
