Ryanair Pilots's Strike Hits Thousands Of Passengers Between UK and Ireland As Flights Cancelled.

More than 5,000 Ryanair passengers have had their flights to and from Dublin cancelled by a pilots’ strike on Thursday 12 July. 
The airline, which is the biggest budget carrier in Europe, grounded 30 flights between the UK and the Irish capital.

Six flights to and from Gatwick were cancelled, along with four linking Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle with Dublin. Round trips to Stansted and Glasgow were also grounded.

Members of the Irish Air Line Pilots’ Association (IALPA) directly employed by Ryanair are in dispute about arrangements for transferring flight crew between European and North African bases as well as seniority and annual leave arrangements.

The two sides failed to reach an agreement after seven hours of talks.
