Ryanair cancels German flights ahead of strike

Ryanair says it will cancel 150 flights out of 400 scheduled to fly to and from Germany on Wednesday due to a 24-hour strike by pilots and cabin crew. In August, Ryanair struck a deal with Irish pilots and said it was hopeful it would secure further deals. "These are wildcat strikes designed to cause maximum disruption to our customers and maximum damage to the Ryanair business," said Ryanair's chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs, speaking at a news conference in Frankfurt in Germany. "It is unacceptable that a union representing Ryanair's German pilots, who earn up to €190,000 a year and work a five-day week followed by a four-day weekend, is now threatening customers' travel plans at short notice," Mr Jacobs added. Ryanair agreed last year to recognise unions as official representatives for workers for the first time in its 33-year history.
