Ryanair pilots may have to delay holidays
Ryanair is planning to make its pilots delay a week’s holiday as it is struggling to cope with massive flight cancellations, CEO Michael O’Leary announced.
O’Leary made the announcement at Ryanair’s annual general meeting that took place recently in Dublin.
The Ireland-based airline is cancelling 40-50 flights daily, and the situation will like remain as it is for the next six weeks. The airline also admitted it “messed up” pilot holidays’ planning.
O'Leary added that some pilots had been offered an increase of 10,000-euro in salaries in exchange for helping out. The offer applied to pilots at London, Dublin, Berlin and Frankfurt airports.
The aforementioned pay rise is on top of a cash bonus that has already been offered to pilots. Captains and first officers will get one-off payments of £12,000 and £6,000, respectively.
If the offer is turned down by the pilots and refused to work extra days, more flight cancellations could be announced in the next few days.
