BELEAGUERED cut-price carrier Ryanair has apologized via Twitter to passengers affected by strikes today.
In a terse Tweet, the airline called the strike ‘unnecessary’
We apologise to the 2,500 Irish customers whose flights today (Tues) were cancelled last Thursday (and who were re-accommodated/refunded over the weekend) due to a 3rd unnecessary strike by a small minority (25%) of our Irish pilots (who earn €150,000 — €200,000 p.a.) over ‘seniority and base transfer’ proposals which they can’t explain and which don’t even affect them.
Our pilots should resolve these issues through our working group and not disrupt any more customer holidays.
Across Europe today, Ryanair will operate over 2,400 flights, taking over 450,000 customers to their holiday destinations.
On Monday, Ryanair posted a sharp rise in costs and a 20% drop in profits.
