BERLIN | Ryanair pilots strike in Germany, 4 other countries
BERLIN — Ryanair pilots in several European countries on Friday staged a strike that prompted the budget carrier to cancel 400 flights.
A walkout called by German union Cockpit accounted for many of Friday’s cancelations. Strikes were also called in Sweden, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands.
The airline said that over 2,000 flights, or 85 percent of its schedule, would operate as normal and that the majority of passengers affected have been re-booked on other Ryanair services.
