Yesterday's FR-6465 Zadar-Charleroi was scheduled 13h10-15h10, with EI-DHB.

[..]

The newspaper reports that rumours are that it was a wildcat strike.
Methinks that if it were a wildcat strike by a Belgian crew it would have taken place at CRL rather than a remote location like Zadar :roll:

RE : Amsterdam Schiphol Airport charges, levies, taxes

Ryanair had filed a compaint with the Dutch regulator ACM – Autoriteit Consument & Markt against AMS Airport. ACM has now ruled against Ryanair: “the tariffs and conditions at Schiphol 2018 are not abnormal”, ACM says.

Ryanair complained they have not been contacted and they were not able to give their advise on the new tariffs, but ACM now says this is untrue. Ryanair also wanted a review of the Security Service Charge, claiming it was unfair (mainly because Ryanair has on average less suitcases p/p needing a safety scan). The Dutch ACM compared the AMS tariff to other airports, and ACM now says the tariff is not unfair nor discriminatory.

Ryanair’s Irish pilots call for fifth strike day on 10 August, the same day as the Belgian and Swedish pilots, and possibly also the Dutch and German ones.

Ryanair cancels 20 flights from Dublin on that date.

Another kind of strike at Ryanair ...?

I'd say Ryanair : 1 - Vigili del Fuoco : 0

The FR plane seems to be following the taxilane line. This runs about 18 meters from the edge of the concrete pavement, half the wingspan of a Code C aircraft.
The 6m-wide asphalt pavement south of it is the wingtip clearance (min 4.50m required) to the red/white blast fence.
The Fire Truck should have been using the service road that is further south of the blast fence.

Maybe painting the Fire Truck in a conspicuous colour like red would have helped the pilots to identify the conflict and stop before the hit.
Or the VV.F. driver was in "guida sportiva" mode ...

At the start of september all unions from all countries were FR operates under irish contracts (everywhere except the UK) will meet to coordinate a european spread action on the same day(s). This would be the biggest strike FR has ever experienced in its history.
