Ryanair cancelled flights list: Travel advice as pilots stage walkout

Kenny Jacobs Ryanair’s chief marketing officer at a news conference in Germany yesterday

Around 50,000 passengers across Europe are expected to be affected this weekend as Ryanair is forced to cancel nearly 400 flights due to a 24-hour walkout by staff in five European countries over a dispute about pay and working conditions.

Around 250 flights have been cancelled as a result, forcing passengers who planned on travelling on Friday to rebook or take different routes.

Ryanair has refused to issue a list of the flights cancelled, but The Times understands that at least 50 departures from the United Kingdom have been called off, with more than 250 cancelled in Ireland.

The Ireland-based budget airline said the industrial action was "regrettable and unjustified" and called for unions to return to the negotiating table.

In July, around 300 flights were cancelled in similar strikes in Portugal, Spain and Belgium. Irish pilots have held four strike days.

Ryanair, which flies in 37 countries and carried 130 million passengers last year, averted widespread Christmas strikes last year by agreeing to recognise trade unions for the first time in its 33-year history.

Ryanair has slammed the strikes as "unnecessary" but pilots counter that the carrier has refused to engage in meaningful dialogue about collective labour agreements since it began recognising unions in December 2017.

But Ryanair pilots say they earn less than counterparts at other airlines like Lufthansa.

Ryanair has described the German strike as "unjustified".

The unions want the contracts of Ryanair employees to be governed by the laws of the nation where they are based, not by Irish legislation. "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.

"We expect the company to lower profit guidance for FY19 as it lowers capacity, on both strike disruption and crew shortages, and see weaker unit revenue trends as strike-affected traffic is redeployed on to operating flights and as passengers book away from what is now a less reliable travel option than usual", HSBC analyst Andrew Lobbenberg said.

But its combative chief executive Michael O'Leary has also warned the airline may shift jobs and planes to more profitable areas if the turmoil continues.
