The fifth day of strike of the cabin crew of the Irish low-cost airline Ryanair has begun with 10 flights canceled and 14 delayed until 11 a.m., reported the USO union, organizer of the strike.

The cancellations of flights that were to be operated by Spanish cabin crew are due to “the lack of notifications of minimum services by the company, which has not summoned full crews,” USO explained.

In some cases, Ryanair has supplied them with the guards, “which have been abusive again”, and the flights have left with delays, adds the airline.

Specifically, Ryanair has canceled three flights from Barcelona-El Prat, bound for Billund (Denmark), Krakow (Poland) and Paris-Beauvais, respectively, round trip.

Two services from Malaga have also been suspended, one to Berlin Brandemburg and the other to Gran Canaria, also with their respective returns.

On the other hand, the 14 delays in departures have been distributed in this way: three from Barcelona, ​​2 from Malaga, 3 from Palma de Mallorca, 2 from Madrid, another 2 from Seville and one from Ibiza, while Alicante and Gerona did not They have had delays.

The strike of the Ryanair TCPs in Spain, which began on June 24, had little impact that day, after the company imposed minimum services of 100%, for which it operated the 438 flights it had scheduled.

USO Sector Aéreo criticizes that Ryanair has cataloged all flights this Thursday as minimum services, in addition to calling guards at airports to all crews in Spain.

The union criticizes that the Government allows the airline not to allow its workers to strike.

“Ryanair reapplies its own minimum services of 100%, its own law, and forces all its crew to fly, trampling on their right to strike,” said USO general secretary at Ryanair, Lidia Arasanz.

He also added that “the Government does nothing; the Labor Inspectorate does not go to the bases on strike days to corroborate the irregularities committed by the company, and the National High Court does not protect the constitutional right to strike and to claim our rights” .

Likewise, from the union they point out that the airline is issuing communications to the pilots ensuring that all crews have minimum service letters, with the detailed flight they have to operate and a list of other possible flights, something “that is totally illegal”.

However, USO and Sitcpla maintain the Ryanair crew strike days for this Thursday, June 30, and July 1 and 2.
