Cabin crew walk-out, 150 Ryanair flights connecting Germany cancelled

Published on : Wednesday, September 12, 2018

ryanairOut of 400 scheduled flights to and from German destinations 150 were cancelled as the cabin crew went on a strike.

 

 

Ryanair connects 16 destinations in Germany like major cities of Hamburg, Frankfurt and Berlin.

 

The German pilots’ union Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) called on all pilots serving the German airports to walk out for a day.

 

 

Apart from that German German cabin crew union Vereinte Dienstleistungsgewerkschaft asked for a day-strike for all cabin crew working on Ryanair flights.

 

 

The airline further specified that all the affected passengers were informed through email and text messages. They were also offered a refund or a free move to another flight. Those passengers with whom the airlines did not contact should commute to the airport for their scheduled flight.

 

 

The airlines mentioned the strike to be unnecessary , however, the pilots’ union VC and cabin crew union ver.di were pushing for better pay and working conditions.

 

 

Airliner.de, VC vice president Markus Wahl said that there was further possibility of strikes if a deal could not be reached.

 

 

The ongoing strikes have caused severe misery and last month 450 flights were cancelled during a one day strike which affected a huge number of passengers and was the worst day in Ryanair’s strike history.
