Unpaid Leave For Ryanair Crews

Ryanair pilots and cabin crew based at Dublin and Stansted Airports will be forced to take one week of unpaid leave this year as the Irish low-cost carrier cuts back flights from those airports.
Ryanair’s Chief Executive, Michael O’Leary, said the airline’s executives would also receive a pay cut of at least 10% because of the industry’s financial difficulties, which have already put several carriers out of business.
To cope with high costs and lower demand, Ryanair is reducing flights from Stansted and Dublin this winter. The airline will be parking up 20 of its Boeing 737s; 15 at Stansted, its largest base, and five at Dublin.
Mr O’Leary had previously said that he expected only five large carriers to survive the downturn – Ryanair, easyJet, British Airways, Air France-KLM and Lufthansa.
