Ryanair Pilots Reject Bonus Offer, Seek New Contracts Instead

Ryanair cancelled flights list UK Stansted

Ryanair explained that they canceled flights in airports that had the most jam-packed schedules, so they can easily cater to those who they put on alternative departures.

"We know that numerous pilots in these holding pools are actually Ryanair pilots waiting for a start date and when they get that start date they will then issue Ryanair with their notice".

Ryanair passengers have been left stranded for days at a time, with some desperate to get back to young children and others racking up huge and unexpected bills as they are forced to stay overseas for longer than planned.

In a statement on its careers website, Ryanair maintains that it "can offer the best career opportunities and progression in the industry", and provides "generous travel benefits" to its employees.

They will get the other week back in January, and the airline does not need the agreement of pilots to take back a week of their leave, he said.

O'Leary later insisted there were no problems between the company and the pilots and that if they misbehave "that will be the end of the goodies".

"Airlines are already beginning to see pilot associations flex their muscles with respect to improved compensation packages and this will only grow in the next 12 months as yearly negotiations take place".


Ryanair's boss Michael O'Leary has announced plans for the airline to recruit 125 new pilots within "the next week or two". However Michael O'Leary has told the Ryanair AGM that pilots "do not want unionisation".

Has your flight been cancelled?

"We believe these working conditions are leading to pilots leaving the airline after a few years to go work for other airlines".

At the AGM, shareholders approved all resolutions by substantial majorities; votes in favour of the Financial Report (99.2pc) and votes in favour of the Remuneration Report (88.7pc).

All 315,000 affected customers were emailed by Ryanair on Monday to advise them of flight changes, alternative flights, refunds and European Union flight compensation law.

O'Leary admitted to a "mess up" over the recent wave of cancellations, saying they were caused by a transition to a new system of allocating leave to pilots.
