The Irish budget carrier has announced more sweeping cancellations, saying that around 400,000 passengers could be affected this winter. What started as a debacle is turning into a full-blown public relations fiasco.
Amid an exodus of pilots to competitors, Ryanair has written to cockpit crews offering to boost their pay and conditions. Last month the budget airline cancelled 18,000 flights because of a shortage of pilots.
Struggling with a shortage of pilots, Irish low-cost airline Ryanair says it plans to cancel thousands more flights until March next year. Hundreds of thousands of travelers are set to be affected.
For years, Lufthansa has been wrangling with its pilots as the airline attempted to reduce costs. A deal struck with its main pilots union on Tuesday should ensure significantly less labor turbulence in the years ahead.
An exodus of Ryanair pilots is just the tip of the iceberg as workers fight over diminished rights, say analysts. Amid a tightening labor market, companies can expect more trouble ahead.
