Ryanair pilots vote to ruin customers holiday plans

Members of Ryanair’s British pilot union have voted for strike action in a ballot triggered by a dispute over working conditions, the British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA) has announced. 

According to the union, there will be a two-day strike from August 22, and a second strike from the early hours of September 2 until just before midnight on September 4. 

Balpa said 79.5% of the ballots cast backed the action. 

The strike is a setback for management at Europe’s largest low-cost carrier, which in recent months said it had largely resolved an industrial relations dispute with pilots and cabin crew that led to a series of damaging strikes last year.
