Ryanair cabin crew threaten summer strikes
30 May 2018 @ 11:38

CABIN crew on Ryanair flights across Europe have threatened strike action this summer starting from July 1 – potentially hitting Spain's tourism industry hard.

The low-cost Irish carrier has been revealed as officially the cheapest and best value for money for short-haul flights, especially as it is the only one that allows two hand luggage bags – the larger of which is placed in the hold at the departure gate for non-priority boarding passengers.

This means the company is a popular choice for breaks in Spain and often transports tourists who only planned to visit because they saw a knock-down flight price, having not otherwise intended to travel.

Spending less on a flight also means tourists have more cash at their disposal once actually in Spain, but the strikes could lead to planes being grounded if insufficient staff are available to provide essential cabin services.

Spanish unions USO and SITCPLA, together with Portuguese union SNVPAC, Italy's UIL and Belgium's CNE met yesterday (Monday) in Madrid to demand Ryanair applies national labour legislation for each country where this is more generous than Irish employment law.
