World’s largest airline cancels, Ryanair strike 2018

World’s largest airline cancels, Ryanair strike 2018

The Dublin-based company said that due to boycott in Germany, Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain, it would have to cancel about 250 planes.

Strikers at the airport held up placards with the message "RYANAIR MUST CHANGE".

Thousands of travellers in Europe saw their plans disrupted yesterday after airline Ryanair cancelled some 190 flights because of strikes by cabin crew in Spain, Belgium, Holland, Portugal, Italy and Germany.

Ryanair, which initially cancelled...

The Irish airline on Friday said that more than 2,150 of its 2,400 scheduled flights would operate as normal.

Spanish cabin crew workers' unions said cancellations could be increasing throughout the day.

In Frankfurt, German pilots' union Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) warned of more action.

"The company has provided a bus. But at least I will arrive today", one traveller told Portugal's SIC television. "Ryanair's approach to employees and trade union representation is wrong", unions said, adding that about 50 flight cancellations in the country.

"They (Ryanair) sent me a text saying, 'Have a look at your email.' I don't have an email", said Eddie Hughes from Norfolk, England, at Madrid airport.

Trade unions hope that Friday's 24-hour stoppage will be the biggest strike in the Irish carrier's history. Staff are protesting Ryanair's practice of counting each employee as registered in Ireland, regardless of their true origin or domicile.

Staff claim this creates huge insecurity for them, blocking their access to state benefits in their country.

Hans Elsen, secretary of Belgium's LBC-NVK union, said that even though Ryanair's chief executive Michael O'Leary has said he offered unions what they wanted, LBC-NVK never got it on paper and can not take what he says in the media as an offer.

A spokesman for Ryanair said the company has already written to the unions in Belgium and all other EU countries, offering to implement local law, social taxes and to accept local court jurisdiction.

EU Social Affairs Commissioner Marianne Thyssen said on Wednesday air crew should be employed under contracts from the country where they work.

At a press conference O'Leary called for the cancellation of the strike, threatening that he would shrink Ryanair's fleet at two Brussels airports if it went ahead.

This week, Ryanair signed deals with cabin crew unions in Italy to provide employment contracts under Italian law. However, the aviation company has rejected the hurdles for the passengers.
