Am I the only one who thinks that Ryanair need to be pulled up on this high court thing in the interest of passenger safety?

I certainly wouldn't feel comfortable getting onto a plane with a pissed off pilot who's employer had taken his union to court to stop him striking for better pay and conditions.

Pilots need to be in top mental and emotional condition when responsible for hundreds of passengers, but how can episodes like this be good for pilot mental health?

Not specifically Ryanair, but God forbid any airline has another Andreas Lubitz who is closer to breaking point than people think.

When it comes to pilot and passenger welfare, stories like this really don't help.

Indeed....upset and stress pilots have crashed planes accidentally and diliberately.

Back in the day pilot was a fantastic job. Nice house and car at home and on the overnights at the hotel you got to ride the odd air hostess.

Pilots were happy and passangers felt safe.
Nobody getting screwed....

Except according to your post, “the odd air hostess.”

And if he did a good job on her, she would not be so odd anymore

On the Andreas Lubitz thing, afaik Ryanair had a policy for a long time that if one of the pilots went to the bog, a stewardess/gay fella in uniform would go into the cockpit for the duration. The pilot unions in Germany were against this rule so Germanwings and Lufthansa did not have it until after the crash.

Aer Lingus as well. It’s an Irish aviation tradition

Cork Airport +10% YTD as of the end of July. Cork will almost certainly take over Belfast City as the third busiest airport in Ireland this year. Shannon down 8% YTD, on course to have their worst year since 2013.

More route announcements coming in Oct and Nov but Ryanair moving the base, Brexit and Global economic slowdown are all looming.
