Ryanair Strike: Hundreds of Flights Canceled During Peak Holiday Season

Ryanair

Despite the walkouts, 85pc of its scheduled flights, more than 2,000, will operate as normal, Ryanair said.

British Airways-owner IAG, easyJet, Ryanair and Wizz Air on Tuesday (24 July) filed a complaint to the European Union over what they say is France's failure to tackle strikes by air traffic controllers.

But in a statement on its website Ryanair said that no flight will be canceled.

The Dutch Airline Pilots Association has said at least 11 flights stand to be affected by the strike in the Netherlands.

"They tweeted: "£ryanair cancelled my flight in the last min because of pilots strike.

Ryanair DAC is an Irish low-priced airline founded in 1984, headquartered in Swords, Dublin, Ireland, with its primary operational bases at Dublin and London Stansted airports.

Ryanair built its low-priced business model without unions but said a year ago it would recognize them.

The walk-out is part of an ongoing dispute over working conditions, which has already seen pilots - who are members of the Irish trade union FORSA - stage four separate one-day strikes. "It is annoying that it's happening in the holidays but that is the only means they have", said one man at an airport in Berlin.

Devin Nunes accidentally revealed his master plan to everyone
In the recording, you can hear McMorris Rodgers say, "Also, the Senate has to start". The fundraiser, which featured Nunes as the headliner, was closed to the press.

The carrier was already hit by a round of strikes last month disrupting 600 flights in Belgium, Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Spain, affecting 100,000 travellers.

The German pilots will join colleagues in Sweden, Belgium and Ireland to stage a 24-hour walkout that will cancel hundreds of flights.

Skavsta airport was prepared to assist passengers affected by the strike but so far only "a handful" have turned up and they "were easily accommodated, " Skavsta Airport Managing Director, Peter Steinmetz, said.

As many as 250 flights across Germany have been hit, with the airline having earlier this week announced an additional 146 cancelled across Ireland, Belgium and Sweden. This can mean staff based in other European states are unable to gain access to state benefits.

Ryanair, which flies in 37 countries and carried 130 million passengers past year, has repeatedly said it remains open to further talks with pilot representatives.

Unions also want the airline to give contractors the same work conditions as staff employees.

Customers affected by the cancellations should have been notified by email and SMS text message yesterday and advised of their options of a refund, free move onto the next available flight or reroute.
