Ryanair misses pilots' deadline to improve working conditions

"Not getting the balance right results in the situation we have seen at Ryanair in the past week".

But he insisted Ryanair's pilots work under "good terms and conditions" and relations with air crew are good.

Brian Strutton, general secretary of United Kingdom pilots" union Balpa, said the comments were "wrong' and would lead to safety fears.

Mr O'Leary has admitted pilots may have been paid a "little on the low side" and has offered some a €10,000 pay rise on top of the bonus but said he would not give in to any form of industrial action, if it materialised and threatened the provision of services.

"Following an intervention from the CAA, Ryanair has confirmed to the United Kingdom regulator that it will reroute passengers on other airlines", the body said.

Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary will face shareholders at the company's annual general meeting amid a pilot shortage that has forced the budget airline to cancel hundreds of flights.

About 500 of Ryanair's 4,200 pilots are due to take four weeks of leave in a single block in October, he said, so may be asked to defer one week of that leave until after January 1.

But two pilots familiar with efforts to negotiate with Ryanair said the company has ignored the ultimatum, allowing the deadline to pass. A former captain of Europe's biggest airline has now launched a scathing attack on its management and "penny-pinching" boss Michael O'Leary.

Ryanair is set to cancel around 50 flights a day in the next six weeks, affecting 350,000 passengers.

He said: 'I would challenge any pilot to explain how this is either a hard job, or how it is they are overworked or how anybody who by law cannot fly more than 18 hours a week could possibly be suffering from fatigue.

Up to 400,000 passengers were affected by the cancellations.

Some 315,000 Ryanair customers are expected to be affected by the cancellations over the next six weeks, but the airline's investors have had a pretty smooth ride-the airline's share price rose on Friday, almost back to where it was before the scheduling snafu emerged.

"I seriously regret these cancellations and upsetting and worrying 80 million of our customers last week", he said. The company says it's drawing a line under the mess: 95% of the customers affected by the recent turmoil will be refunded or given new flights by the end of the week, and profits for the full year won't be impacted.
