Can I be contacted on a day off?

Jolly good. Would you be so glib had I used the word law instead of rules.

Ryanair issued an internal memo to say a phone call does not count as disturbed rest period.
This is absolutely true. According to a leaked memo to the crewing dept from Ryanair's chief pilot, phoning a pilot up to 2200 hrs local doesn't constitute disturbed rest !!! This includes the evening before a 5 am report !!!


I'd be very curious to see what the regulators would think of this. As a matter of fact, I doubt it's even legal.
I *personally* sent a copy of the memo to the IAA. The reply from one of their flight ops inspectors consisted of one line, and I quote :-

"if a pilot does not wish to be disturbed, they should switch their phone off"

So much for regulation then? Welcome to the banana republic of Ireland!
