Ryanair pilots have called off strikes planned for later this month, probably because their walk-outs aren’t having any effect on the airline’s flights.
Yesterday, Ryanair threatened to remove pilots’ travel perks for a year if they continued with the industrial action, which started with a wave of strikes in August.
Further strikes were planned from next week, but the pilots’ union BALPA said all action has been suspended for the time being.
It says it wants to create some breathing space, and it’s hoping for ‘meaningful negotiations’ with Ryanair.
Ryanair has so far refused to meet with BALPA to discuss its demands.
This week, BALPA also cancelled a British Airways’ pilots’ strike, due to take place on September 27. However, the airline had already cancelled some flights ahead of the industrial action.
