Ryanair pilots: No thanks to €12000 bonuses for working backlogged holiday days

Ryanair cancelled flights list UK Stansted

Ryanair has also rejected suggestions that staff are tempted to begin industrial action, saying with captains looking to switch bases and first officers looking for promotions, there's no risk of blue flu.

This new development comes at a time when there growing news reports of pilots trying to re-negotiate their contracts with the airline and discussing the possibility of "mass sick days".

He said pilots who had a four-week block of holidays coming up in the next few months because of rota changes would be told to take three weeks instead and have the other week in January.

He also said that Ryanair does not require the agreement of the pilots to take back the leave, and said that all the cancellations would likely cost the airline about €25m (£22m).

There have been suggestions of a strike over conditions at Ryanair, an airline where CEO Michael O'Leary had previously referred to pilots as "glorified taxi-drivers".

A source told Reuters that a letter had been approved by pilots at 17 of 85 Ryanair bases demanding new permanent, contracts under local labour law, though this could not be independently verified by Reuters.

Ryanair's O'Leary has told shareholders that 75% of passengers with cancelled flights have been rebooked and refunded.

Pilots are not treated as the highly trained professionals that they are by many companies and that is why they are leaving, according to a former member of the profession.

Ryanair says: "We don't comment on rumour or speculation, especially when it originates from competitor pilot unions".

Pilots who work a day off will continue to be paid the relevant working day off payment, "sector" pay for hours worked, and their annual leave payments, if working a day that was previously allocated as annual leave.

"There's an underlying problem at Ryanair, which is quite simply that the company can not replace pilots as fast as they quit", he wrote.

Ryanair has said it expects to have re-accommodated more than 95% of the 315,000 customers affected by cancellations by end of this week.
