I believe it's all about the experience of someone. However, there are many people think Emirates is much better than Qatar Airways and that's a fact. I know another friend who resigned from QA after 2 weeks from joining, when he knew there's a deal between the 2 companies which means it will take 1 year for him to join Emirates after leaving QA, the guy was impatient but for good, and now there are still 5 months for him to go. That explains most QA Cabin Crew join the company just to gain experience and then they join Emirates forever, that is it!

The major requirements for commercial pilots are flying experience, education and FAA licensure. Many pilots are trained in the military or at a flying school. Completing an FAA-accredited flight training program may allow prospective commercial pilots to gain experience while learning flying skills not taught in the classroom. Employers often prefer to hire pilots who have completed a college degree. Courses may include aerospace engineering, aviation meteorology, physics and mathematics.
All commercial pilots must complete an oral, written and practical FAA licensing exam. Pilots also must pass a physical exam and meet the minimum number of required flying hours.
Aircraft pilots must also be able to work away from home for long periods. Many commercial airline pilots have irregular schedules and must stay overnight to accommodate flight schedule
