Ryanair offers pilots €12000 bonus to forgo annual leave

Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary during a press conference in Dublin who will be hoping things do get better soon

The fact that Ryanair has been canceling flights the night before and leaving people stranded with little proactive help to get them to their destination is the final nail in the coffin of its brand name.

In an internal memo circulated by the airline's chief operations officer Michael Hickey, pilots who have already been assigned a month off are requested to work between one and two blocks of five days to avoid further cancellations. I say sorry on behalf of Ryanair.

The airline said earlier that it is preparing for up to €20 million in compensation claims after the cancellations, but analysts estimated that the total cost could be higher.

Ryanair said they will issue the next set of cancellations tomorrow.

European Union flight compensation regulations require airline operators to provide compensation to passengers for lengthy delays or cancellations. In these circumstances, you may have the right to be-booked onto a different airline.

As a result, Ryanair will probably have to scrap around fifty flights every day until the end of October.

Many affected travellers are also entitled to claim compensation for the disruption, however, if you have been given more than 14 days notice you will not be able to claim compensation but can still claim a refund.

Pilots will not receive the one-off bonus until November next year, an inducement to stay with the company amid reports that many are defecting to Norwegian, which said it had hired 140 pilots from the Irish airline since the start of the year.

Mr O'Leary insisted the airline is "not short of pilots" as he explained the reason behind the cancellations.

Shares (Berlin: DI6.BE - news) in Ryanair dropped 1.9 percent to 16.74 euros in Dublin trade by the close. "However, so long as the pilot shortage is rectified in due course, there should be no (long term group) impact", it added in a client note.

Independent.ie has contacted Ryanair for a comment.

The Irish budget airline said it has been forced to cancel up to 50 flights a day because of air traffic control delays and strikes and bad weather.

Those cancellations were sparked by changes to the holiday roster which left Ryanair with too few pilots to cover the flights.

It might be a loudmouth founder - such as Uber has previously had to live with - or accounting principles that leave the public wondering if companies are paying their proper share of tax, which applies to the USA tech giants.
