Genius. And I suppose those pax who booked on BA a few months back should have been wary because of BA's track record with dodgy IT!

And those idiots who booked Monarch holidays too...

I bet they didnt have Michael O'Leary claiming it was bad weather over Italy when actually he didnt have any pilots to fly his jets!

In previous posts I have mentioned that their crewing issue will take at least 12 months to begin to right itself. There is no doubt the blame game is starting now, strikes or no strikes. They will have a good idea of the training through put for summer 2018 and also whether they are managing to retain people, my guess, it is going to be super tight on what is planned. This message about 'the platoons of goons' is not just for the media/passenger benefit but also for the various regulators. If you take the UK CAA it could not care to hoots who flies the passengers (viz a viz Qatar can appear at the drop of a regulators pen) so woe betide whoever messes up someones £9.99 flight. Ryanair's management are getting the narrative sorted early so they can move out of the sights, the aim is being directed.....answers on a postcard.

I'm not an expert but according to recruitment figures, RYR will recruit another thousand pilot within 2018, mostly cadet.
Correct me if I'm wrong but this lead us to 2100 pilots in two years so half the pilot workforce. woooww

Interesting Year ahead!

Anyone interested in Terms and Conditions in Europe does well to read anything RYR has on the news bulletins.

As for the ca 500 10 years plus Veterans , some are feed up with the whole show. Especially watching Igor from Vladivostok and the likes sailing into the LH seat at his preferred base at 156 000 euro a year as an RYR employee!

I have made my predictions, and it looks like MOL has made a worstcase that is close.

It really amazes me why people would accept a sham contract as a pilot. Full-time employment, or your employer is taking you for a fool. Come on guys, you deserve better!

Now entering what is probably RYR's biggest "non operation" expense. The airline is nearly 2nd to their law firm! I bet this doesn't get far, though I bloody hope it does. Good luck.

Ryanair is trying to find a pragmatic solution with unions in a“sweet spot” where staff conditions are improved, but that the airline’s pioneering low-cost model is not undermined, Wilson said.
“The world isn’t going to change drastically beyond this model,” he said.
So fast Eddie is this a statement of fact or just your opinion?

Is it just me but was wondering why Ryan Air bother with a people manager?

Would that be the same low-cost model that is used by hugely successful profit making, expanding, unionised, profit sharing SWA? or is it another version?

SWA Terms and conditions!

Is there anyone here that works for SWA or that know the terms and conditions?

With the financial success of RYR it would be what the RYR pilots should aim for! I have heard it is quite good , so can anyone in the know please post a short overview of what they make and how the general conditions are.

This would be most helpful for the RYR pilots to put things in perspective. And any successful European LCC pilot for that mater.

I was jumpseating with a crew lately where the Captain has been in RYR for 12 years and the FO for 17 years (still on old contract which is better than the new captain ones so he wants to stay in the right hand seat) and they're trying to get things slightly back to how it was years ago. They're the ones fighting for the better, because they actually liked RYR some time ago. They do have great offers from other airlines which they might accept in the near future though if things don't change. And they know about half DUB based experienced guys will do the same. Hopefully O'Leary wakes up one day, because I don't want this airline to break loose before I have my 1500 hours! :lol:

I see MOL is now saying he'll ground aircraft to protest over Brexit and make the public see what a bad idea Brexit is

More like the next time they have a pilot shortage and planes get grounded he will blame it on Brexit to make it look like a planned grounding rather than an actual pilot issue.

Chatting to a few FR folk it would appear the summer schedule is still being “worked on”. Is this standard for FR or indeed other airlines..... March seems a bit close to summer. Or could numbers still be be short. What’s the legal position on standby cover?
