Ryanair scrambles to please pilots, customers and investors

Ryanair scrambles to please pilots, customers and investors

But he also said he was considering forcing pilots to change their holiday plans and warned that any pilot who failed to show up for work as a form of industrial action would be frozen out of pay talks and denied promotion.

This new development comes at a time when there growing news reports of pilots trying to re-negotiate their contracts with the airline and discussing the possibility of "mass sick days".

Chief executive Michael O'Leary will tell pilots who plan to take four weeks of consecutive holiday in the coming months will be told to reduce it to three weeks, with the lost leave to be taken in January.

He also said that Ryanair does not require the agreement of the pilots to take back the leave, and said that all the cancellations would likely cost the airline about €25m (£22m).

Italy's antitrust watchdog said on Wednesday it had opened a probe into thousands of flight cancellations by Ryanair, which it said the low-priced airline could have prevented.

He told the AGM that the offer applied to pilots at London Stansted, Dublin, Frankfurt and Berlin airports. More than 700 Ryanair pilots have quit overall complaining of mistreatment and saying O'Leary treats them with "utter contempt", The Sun says.

The UK union is urging the airline to "do more to encourage pilots to stay with the airline, following news of its pilot holiday chaos" and to foster a "more attractive place for people to build their career".

They are said to be looking for permanent local contracts for all employees.

O'Leary is scrambling to prevent more disruption to Ryanair's schedule after cancelling up to 50 flights a day due to a rota "mess-up" that left it short of pilots.

Earlier today, Independent.ie learned that pilots at 33 Ryanair bases across Europe have now demanded improved working and employment conditions from the airline's management.

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

Separately, some Ryanair pilots have spoken to the about a "toxic" atmosphere and how they felt "undervalued".

Ryanair expects to have processed over 300,000 alternative routings or refunds for customers - over 95% of affected customers - by the end of this week.
