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.
Europe's largest budget airline has reported a surge in quarterly profits. The positive result came despite a flight cancellation crisis that had hit Ryanair after the airline had rostering problems with its pilots.
Ryanair has officially signed a deal to recognize a British pilots' union, the first recognition of a union in the history of the carrier. But it remains unclear whether more deals with other unions will follow.
German flag carrier Lufthansa says it has replaced Irish rival Ryanair at the top of the list of airlines with the most passengers in Europe. The demise of Air Berlin played no small part in this, experts noted.
With the threat of pilot strikes looming across Europe, the Irish low-cost carrier has bowed to employee pressure and says it will now accept unions for the first time. The unions have cautiously welcomed the news.
