Ryanair pilots set to strike despite planned talks

Nearly 100 pilots working for Ryanair in Ireland voted to stop work on July 12 for 24 hours, and now Ryanair has announced which flights will be cancelled as a result of the strike.

The airline said customer service teams are helping them with refunds and transfers to alternative flights.

Ryanair released a statement on Tuesday afternoon to confirm this, writing that this situation would ideally have been avoided.

Ryanair has confirmed that it is to cancel up to 30 flights to and from Ireland on Thursday.

About 120 members of the Irish Airline Pilots' Association (Ialpa) are due to stop work for 24 hours in a long- running dispute over pilot seniority.

Ryanair defended their stance as an employer, claiming that Ryanair pilots enjoy quite impressive benefits regarding pay, holidays and job security. However, no planned strike in Ryanair's 33 year history has ever gone ahead, so there is hope for Tomorrowland visitors planning on travelling those days that all will be okay.

Passengers who have not received an email or text alerting them to the disruption can safely assume that their flight will depart as normal tomorrow.

They should check in as normal at their departure airport.

Visitors to Tomorrowland's second weekend (27th -29th July) may face travel concerns following the announcement of planned strikes from Ryanair staff.

"These coordinated strike threats are created to cause unnecessary disruption to customers and damage Ryanair's low fare model, for the benefit of high fare competitor airlines in Ireland and Germany", it said.

The pilots have called the strike after talks with the budget airline broke down.

This top Irish businessman believes that anyone - anyone at all! - can find a way to get funding for a new business.
