Michael O’Leary warns of rising cost of fuel and says policymakers need to get inflation back to about 2%
Ryanair said on Tuesday it expects to incur no disruptions to its daily flight schedule in August or September from planned weekly strikes by some of its Spanish cabin crew. Members of the USO and SITCPLA unions said last month they would strike from Monday to Thursday every week from Aug. 8 to Jan. 7 to press demands for higher pay and better working conditions. The Irish airline, Europe's largest carrier by passenger numbers, says the vast majority of its Spanish cabin crew are represented by another union, CCOO, with which it has already reached a pay agreement.
Ryanair has vowed to take the Hungarian government to court after the airline was fined for passing its "unjustified" windfall tax onto customers.
