Ryanair To Take A Weeks Leave Off Pilots To Solve "Mess-Up"

Balpa says Ryanair's problems have been exacerbated by the high turnover rate of pilots.

He told shareholders six weeks of cancellations, which he previously admitted was a "mess", has cost the airline about £22million (€25m).

"I don't even know how there would be industrial action in Ryanair", O'Leary said. The airline has hired additional customer service personnel to accelerate the handling of flight change requests and the reimbursement of the passengers concerned. However, the story doesn't end there.

The Irish Examiner reports a draft letter signed by Ryanair pilots has warned they will "work to rule".

O'Leary's statement comes amid reports that flight captains and first officers have rejected Ryanair's offer of bonus payments in exchange for taking on more hours.

Ryanair pilots are demanding improved employment conditions and pay. The reason behind that rejection are mixed.

"This has caused huge inconvenience for Italian residents, and we insist on the absolute respect of passengers' rights", Delrio said on Monday.

The budget airline is notorious for trimming the price it pays for everything and that's likely reflected in the wages it pays its staff.

Passengers on cancelled flights have complained that notice was far to short and that it was hard to claim compensation.

However, the Ryanair share price has already fallen some 10% and if a sustainable agreement between Ryanair and its pilots can't be agreed, there's little to stop it from falling further.

Micheal O'Leary apologised to shareholders, and again to customers, for the cancellation of 2,100 of its over 103,000 flights, due to a failure within its pilot rostering function.

Pilots must also undertake to complete at least ten working days off between 15 September of this year and 31 October 2018 - including one full block of five days during their month off.

Balpa general secretary Brian Strutton said: "It seems Ryanair has been just about scraping through the summer schedule and having no flexibility in the system, coupled with a miscalculation of pilot annual leave, has led to this disastrous situation".

Ryanair has said it expects to have re-accommodated more than 95% of the 315,000 customers affected by cancellations by end of this week.
