Ryanair strikes in Spain: these are the 61 flights affected this Tuesday, 9 August
The Irish low-cost airline operates Spanish bases in Madrid, Barcelona, Girona, Malaga, Seville, Valencia, Alicante, Santiago de Compostela, Palma and Ibiza
Why is it industrial action always affects those who least need it? If it isn’t the French Air Traffic Controllers, it’s the Baggage Handlers in London, the cabin crew in Greece or whatever.
People work hard all year and their two weeks in the sun are the highlight of the year. So, why should they suffer? I’m not a political animal and, I don’t want to be expressing such views on a holiday blog but; come on!
When are Ryanair Strikes?
According to our friends at the Sur in English, that fine publication for the south of Spain, the strikes are as follows:
The industrial action, announced by the Unión Sindical Obrera (USO), will continue for five months – until 7 January 2023 – every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
This is going to cause people travelling to and from Spain problems, never mind causing Ryanair a problem.
