Ryanair is facing strike activity by its employees in number of markets in Europe late summer and early fall this year.
Spanish cabin crew and pilots unions have now announced their strike dates for September 2019 that will cause flight delays and cancellations. Ryanair pilots in Britain are striking in early next month as well.

Cabin crew in Spanish bases are striking on September 1, 2, 6, 8, 13, 15, 20, 22, 27 and 29 while pilots have chosen to strike on September 19, 20, 22, 27 and 29. British pilots are striking on September 2, 3 and 4.
Here’s an excerpt from the Independent (access their piece here):
Spanish pilots union Sepla revealed it would call for a nationwide walkout in September to protest the closing of several Ryanair bases from January 2020, including ones in Las Palmas, Tenerife South, Lanzarote and Girona.
Around 900 pilots who are members of the union have been instructed to participate in the stoppages on 19, 20, 22, 27 and 29 September.
Some of the strike dates will coincide with those of a 10-day walk-out announced by Ryanair’s Spanish cabin crew. The industrial action is planned for 1, 2, 6, 8, 13, 15, 20, 22, 27 and 29 September.
Ryanair is Europe’s largest airline that operates flights and has bases all over the Europe. The airline has been known for creative ways to hire its employees. Many don’t work directly for the airline at all.
Passengers scheduled to fly on various Ryanair services should take into account these possible strike dates and plan accordingly.
