Co-ordinated action against Ryanair in 4 European companies.

Saint MO might be getting more time to go to the horses very soon.

Ryanair is big enough to absorb small losses from individual bases.  So, for example, a small percentage of Dublin pilots vote to strike, the union calls a strike, Ryanair transfers 6 planes to Poland.  Suppose there's continued action in Dublin, more planes will get transferred.  Eventually the other bases will get the message.  Ryanair has finally agreed to deal with unions, but the unions also have a duty to act responsibly.  Remember what happened to BMC?

You're absolutely right, this union action will ultimately damage the pilots they represent, but Ryanair will continue to grow and prosper.  I do indeed remember what happened to BMC and the subsequent BL companies, primarily as a result of irresponsible union action.

Phew! Glad you finally agree with me.

why as a weak leftie border line pervert do you support the large multi national conglomerate over the worker ?

your supposed to be looking out for the little guy (worker) rather than the big bully conglomerate.

or is this socialism at play once again where you dont really look out for the little guy at all if you have a interest in a certain multinational ?

you happily screw them over and dont for a second think once about who you have hurt

socialism is disgusting and this here is proof of that.

Not really. The pilot shortage means there are more jobs then pilots. You can't bully the way Ryanair does when most pilots have multiple offers.

The cabin crew aren't exactly making Hollywood money.

Shifting planes to Eastern Europe sounds easy. But Ryanair makes it's money on the extras. It's easier selling extras to higher income countries.

Ryanair doesn't make its money on extras, the average ancillary income is only about 15 euros per passenger - this includes checked bags, reserved seats, priority boarding, in-flight sales, and website sales (car hire, insurance, hotels, etc).  It wouldn't seem difficult to hit that average in most countries in which Ryanair operates.

What is being overlooked here, is not the rights and wrongs per se, but exactly how high is O`Learys stock with the real owners, led by David Bonderman. They are as ruthless as Mick. If he is seen as an obstacle to smoother waters and the profits start to sag, because of him (no doubt what the various unions are aiming for) he will go..Make no mistake about that.
