Ryanair admits management 'failure'

Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary has said the firm is facing a "Significant management failure" as it struggles to cope with massive flight cancellations. Ryanair is cancelling 40-50 flights every day for the next six weeks, after it admitted it had "Messed up" the planning of pilot holidays. A group of Ryanair pilots has rejected a cash bonus to work extra days. Ryanair had offered captains a one-off payment of £12,000 or 12,000 euros, and first officers £6,000 or 6,000 euros, but they said they wanted new contracts and better working conditions instead. In response, the pilots wrote a letter saying: "The pilot market is changing, and Ryanair will need to change the ways which the pilots and management work together to ensure a stable and common future for everyone." Ryanair has said it expects to have re-accommodated more than 95% of customers affected by cancellations by end of this week.
