High Court grants Ryanair injunction to stop this week's pilots' strike

Ryanair strike- Government decrees minimum services

Ryanair strike- Government decrees minimum services

The airline said the ruling was a "huge relief" to passengers at the end of the school holidays and called on a "minority of very well-paid pilots" to end their dispute.

Ryanair said that a small number of flights from Portuguese airports could be affected by minimal changes to the timetables and that all passengers will be notified.

"If this injunction is successful then the risk of flight disruption will be removed", it noted, adding "We will continue to do all we can to minimise disruption to our customers".

Ryanair has pointed to falling airfares and profits as well as the fact that its pilots' pay is "already 20% ahead" of salaries offered by its competitors.

A strike by Portuguese cabin crew working for budget airline Ryanair is causing little impact, with only some minor delays reported.

Ryanair has its main United Kingdom base at Stansted, although this is just one airport where strike action will take place.

Putin says U.S. missile test raises new threats to Russian Federation
On Aug. 2, the USA formally withdrew from the nuclear pact, following a months-long war of words between Moscow and Washington. For Russia, Putin said, the test means "the emergence of new threats, to which we will react accordingly".

Ryanair is going to the High Court in a bid to block strike action by its United Kingdom pilots.

Ryanair (RYA.L) has announced it has won a last-ditch legal bid to stop a group of its Irish pilots going on strike this week.

A second round of strikes has been scheduled for September. "It means that all the time that could have been used to try to find a resolution will have been spent preparing for court action".

Fórsa national secretary Angela Kirk has said that the Irish Airline Pilots' Association is "seeking pay levels it believes are common and competitive in the commercial airline sector, from a company that made a substantial profit of €1 billion previous year".

The carrier also said Forsa had not outlined specific pay demands, had been hasty in their movement to strike and conducted the strike ballot improperly.

Unions representing cabin crew in Spain said their plans for 10 days of strikes next month still stood after more than seven hours of mediated talks with the airline ended on Tuesday without agreement.
