Ryanair cancels flights due to stewards' strike, 50,000 passengers affected

Ryanair strike will cut 50 flights to and from Belgium

Another 600 Ryanair flights have been cancelled next week due to ongoing strikes.

The strike by Forsa - which represents Irish pilots - will be union's third 24-hour strike.

Cabin crew from across Europe earlier this month published a list of 34 demands on July 4, including "a fair living wage", improved sick pay and employment contracts in their own language, based on local rather than Irish law.

"While this meeting was primarily to update the new members of your team, nothing has progressed since we have got no engagement or response from the pilots' committee on Ryanair's proposals", it read. The cancellations amount to 12 percent of its flights.

Given the possibility that the budget carrier may cancel more flights, the ministry is requesting detailed information from the company about the current situation. A further pilots' strike is scheduled for Tuesday.

Ryanair cancels flights due to stewards' strike, 50,000 passengers affected

There have been frustrations with the airline over the failure to reach agreements on issues like seniority, base transfers, promotions and annual leave.

Ryanair said passengers may request a refund of their tickets or be assigned to an alternate flight. Belgium is the most affected, with 31% of flights; Spain sees more flights cancelled, with up to 200, but that only counts for 24% of all flights.

The Irish airline, Europe's largest by passenger numbers, said in a statement it expected disruption to the travel plans of nearly 50,000 customers as it would cancel up to 300 flights per day.

A spokesperson said anyone affected had already been alerted by text message or by email, while also being offered an alternative.
