If you are heading on your holidays, let's hope it isn't on July 12.

Ryanair cabin crew have signalled that they are joining pilots in their strike action. 

Earlier this week, Ryanair was served a notice of industrial action on behalf of Ryanair pilots by Irish Airline Pilots’ Association (IALPA).

The union revealed that 99 percent of their member supported the ballot calling for the action.

The results of Tuesday's ballot confirmed that a 24-hour strike would take place on Thursday, July 12, at 1 am. 

Cabin crew have now announced they will accompany pilots in their work stoppage if their demands are not met.

The Ryanair staff penned their requirements which covered pay, work rotates, annual leave, pensions and compensation.

Last night it was submitted to management.

The move to create a list of demands was branded "pointless" by Ryanair.

Commenting on the development, union official Oliver Richardson said:

"We are a federation. We don't call strike action… strike action is called by our affiliates.

"As a federation, would we support as best as we could those affiliates in taking that action? Of course, we would."

The airline has stated talks are already underway with unions to negotiate the issues raised.

Fingers and toes crossed it gets sorted!



Ryanair is most definitely the king of budget airlines – how else could you get across Europe for under a tenner? – but it does come with its downsides.

Over the last twelve months though, the airline has pledged to improve customer experience in a big way, and today they revealed the most recent change for passengers.

Passengers travelling on the new Boeing 737-800 planes, which will join the fleet in January, will no longer be blinded by those awful bright yellow seats. Phew.

Above is a peek at the interior of Ryanair's new plane cabins, featuring bigger windows, slimmer seats for more leg room, redesigned overhead lockers and a blue colour scheme that's far easier on the eye.

Judging by the image, which was posted to Ryanair's Twitter today, those early-morning flights should be a LOT easier to handle for hungover stag and hen party groups.

Plus, staff are set to get new uniforms and there'll be a new in-flight menu too.

The changes come after Ryanair updated its website last year to make it more user-friendly, and also did away with the oh-so annoying "on time" trumpet noise that plays at the end of every flight.

It's not gone for good though, sadly, but its been replaced by something that's slightly more pleasant to listen to:

Happy days,
