Number of Ryanair pilot unions have voted in favor of taking strike action on next Friday August 10, 2018.
The airline has already canceled number of flights scheduled for the day and there will be further changes.
Here’s an excerpt from the Telegraph (access their piece here):
Thousands of Ryanair passengers face disruption next week as the airline is cancelling more than 100 flights due to multiple strikes across Europe.
Pilots in Ireland, Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands have all voted to take industrial action, planned for next Friday, August 10.
As a result, Ryanair has cancelled 104 flights to and from Belgium on Friday, 22 to and from Sweden and 20 flights from Ireland. The Irish cancellations alone will affect around 3,500 passengers.
Ryanair has had contagious relations with its cabin and cockpit crews that often don’t directly work for the airline but are rather “contractors” disposable at whim.
Considering that there is a shortage of pilots, not sure why anyone would like to work for an airline who treats their employees like this?
Remember that Ryanair is required to rebook the affected passengers to their final destination at the earliest possibility and is required to provide accommodation and meals in case of long delays.
