Ryanair flights cancelled as cabin crew strike

Some cabin crew at Ryanair went on strike in Belgium, Spain and Portugal today in a dispute over pay and working conditions.

It caused limited disruption as the budget airline cancelled dozens of flights that left hundreds of passengers stranded.

Surging inflation across Europe has led to millions of workers struggling with a higher cost of living, prompting trade unions to demand higher wage increases often backed by strike calls.

Airlines and airport operators across Europe have also struggled with staff shortages to handle the flow of passengers as demand for travel bounces back with the end of most COVID-19 restrictions.

 Workers at several other airlines, including British Airways are also planning strikes this summer.
