Expressen.se has an interesting article entitled “The truth about the luxury of Qatar Airways.” The article tells the stories of a few Qatar Airways employees that were sacked for a variety of reasons, and gives some interesting insight into how Qatar Airways management generally views employees.
I wouldn’t take everything written as fact, but there’s certainly a lot of truth to it. For what it’s worth I know some flight attendants that work for Emirates and Etihad, and based on what I’ve heard it’s not quite as bad as what the article suggests, though on the other hand I know someone that used to work for Saudia, and that sounded ten times worse.
On the whole nothing in the article really surprises me, though. It’s kind of in line with the post I wrote in late-2012, entitled “Is the UAE the most depressing place in the world?”
Do stories like this impact your desire to fly top airlines like Qatar Airways?
