WALKOUT: New Year Strikes could affect hundreds of flights and thousands of British holidaymakers

RYANAIR is facing a summer of chaos after its cabin crew threatened to strike during peak times this holiday season. 

Unions representing flight attendants across Europe are calling on the budget airline to stop using Irish labour laws and to adapt to the laws of each country where it operates.

The unions are from some of the most popular destinations for summer holidays, including Spain, Portgual, Italy and Belgium.

Ryanair says negotiations are making progress, but Sitcpla, representing cabin crew in Spain, said the talks are ‘usless’ unless mediators adress and acknowledge their legitimate claims in writing.

Spain’s USO union said: “If Ryanair refuses to meet our demands, and setting June 30 as a deadline, the unions will start all necessary procedures to mobilise at a European level for the summer, including calling a strike.”
