Re: Social actions at air navigation service provider skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

When the passengers go to their bank to collect it, the bank charges € 35 costs. https://radar.avrotros.nl/forum/overig-juridisch-financieel-f93/ryanair-stuurt-3-cheques-die-ik-niet-kan-innen-t195480...
