Ryanair passengers could be in for more turbulence after the airline warned of upcoming disruptions. CEO Michael O'Leary averted strikes last year by recognizing unions´ for the first time - but it seems the talks aren't going as smoothly as hoped.
Ryanair has struck a deal with the German pilots' union which has been one of its most vocal foes during a year of industrial disputes, strikes and cancellations.
Some 30,000 European passengers will be impacted by Ryanair pilot and cabin crew strikes on Friday. The German pilots' union said it will participate in the walkout with 1,000 German cabin crew members set to join them.
Irish no-frills carrier Ryanair has said it has reached an agreement with the trade union representing its Irish pilots. It was good news for the budget airline, which had sought to quell staff protests across Europe.
Almost 200 Ryanair flights across Europe won't take off as Ryanair staff in six European countries strike. The decision of the Cockpit pilots' union to join the strike will cancel 35-45 flights in and out of Germany.
