Re: Ryanair cabin crew strike 25 and 26 July 2018 - cockpit strike 10 August

Maybe I fail to understand, but it seems you suggest that the crew shouldn't go on strike because their management doesn't respect the EU legislation helping passengers in case of disruption? Almost correct. Not because management doens't respect legislation but because the crew knows that passenge...

Re: Ryanair cabin crew strike 25 and 26 July 2018 : cockpit strike 10 August

. Affected passengers will be rerouted "ON OTHER RYANAIR FLIGHTS"* or refunded. * words in red added by convair to luchtzak quote in order to correctly reflect Ryanair's statement. . https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DjrstTyWsAEpna5.jpg Aren't they obliged to book their pax on other airlines if necessary?

Re: Ryanair cabin crew strike 25 and 26 July 2018

With their strike, the trade unions & Ryanair staff cause a lot of damage to passengers. Just one example: when Ryanair is unable to offer a decent rerouting, other non-refundable travel arrangements are lost unless the passengers buy new tickets. Which will be, quite obviously, a lot more expensiv...

Ok, I agree, long term planning is not rocket science, but it does require a certain "stock" of available resources. Indeed understaffing might well be the real issue, much rather than summer holidays.
The solution is a Europe-wide ATC! When will the EU understand?
