From the above People before Profit article:

The IAA is a state agency with a dual mandate. These two mandates are directly in conflict with each other.

1. It is charged with the regulation of safety and security.

2. It also has a for-profit mandate based on charges for inspecting airlines.
Just like they do in Banana republics...

IAA

I would put forward another reason for the IAA being the way it is, they are sipmily out of their depth , they have too much work for a small authority , limmited experience outside Ireland and most of the inspectors are ex Ryanair and only see the Ryanair way of doing things.

Only when the IAA move into this century will they becom a component authority capable of managing the number of aircraft on the Irish registry.

This is not a corruption issue it is one of resources and modern aviation experience.

Can anyone shed light on the unverified rumours that a few pilots at Ryanair who identified themselves as company council members are being deciplined and one has been summarily dismissed?

Unionisation taking place in Ireland, Sweden, Italy, Spain, Germany and Portugal. When are the UK based pilots going to join the party?

I am really disappointed that UK based pilots and BALPA is not on the list of pilot groups who are standing up against the company. Why is it like this?

One reason for this could be the incredible amount of recruitment and availability of jobs. Are guys just seeing themselves through by hoping they can jump ship soon?

Since Thatcher labour forces went down the hill....
It was Thatcher with a stroke of political genius that linked forever the organised labour movement to the destruction of the nation. It has been used in many other countries. It wasn't the reckless banker, the polluting and environmentally destructive corporate it was the employee.

The legal remedy of labour removal, effectively the ultimate last resort has in most western economies been watered down. Union themselves lost their way and forgot their charter and those of us not choosing our parents well enough have suffered.

Unsurprisingly GDP per capita fell in most western economies.

With aging populations, globalised capital destroying onshore employment meant progressively the middle class shrunk, its role and wealth diminished it had to borrow to fund lifestyle. Growth is sluggish, debt too high and lower interest rates don't further stimulate like the stupid politicians are told the textbooks say it will

Ironically as politicians of both persuasions scratch their heads looking for answers in the same neo-classical economics, they need only ask Henry Ford how it all fitted together.

'One man's spending is another's income': He raised the wages of his workers to ensure his business had enough customers.

Corporates and government fail to understand this fundamental problem; the profits from our system are concentrated in far too few hands. With huge costs and other barrier's to entry aviation is no longer a rewarding return for an investment of time and money. In an Orwellian nightmare like that overseen by O'Leary is it really any surprise that there are now too few pilots and those that are left want nothing to do with Ryan air?

Italian union announces 4-hour strike of Ryanair pilots for 15 December

Italian union announces 4-hour strike of Ryanair pilots for 15 December

ya ya..
“We regularly receive threats of industrial action from competitor airline pilot unions from Italy, Portugal and even Aer Lingus pilots occasionally.
Both we and our pilots ignore these letters…

At the end of the day it all depends on how many pilots participate. If they don't do it now, nothing will change. I hope they realize it..... The time for divide and conquer is over.

Probably the most accurate post in this topic for a while.

Looking forward to see how it happens on the 15th, sadly UK pilots still seem to be a bit disorganized and divided. Hope they will unionize soon as well.

I would agree that the poor reward for investment in pilot training is drastically limiting supply.

Yawn. Heard this version so many times.
