Spanish cabin crew at Ryanair are unhappy with their pay and working conditions and have threatened to walk out on three days in January if their demands for an improved working environment and pay are not met.

Ryanair passengers could face disruption if travelling on January 8, 10 or 13 January as it is likely that Spanish cabin crew will strike after unions met with Ryanair bosses and a mediating body and nothing was resolved.

Unions supporting the 1,800 Spanish Ryanair cabin crew claim that their workers are treated worse than cabin crew from all other countries as the Irish airline has apparently completely disregarded Spanish legislation regarding minimum working conditions.

Ryanair bosses were given until 21 December to make changes, but the situation remains the same.

Despite rulings from Spanish courts, employment inspectors and the European Commission, the low-cost airline continues to ignore Spanish employment law and comply with basic working and contractual rights.

Flights all over the country will be affected.
