Pilots strike will disrupt Ryanair's services next week.


Pilots with the Irish-based airline Ryanair have indicated that they will be staging a one-day strike on 24 November as part of an ongoing dispute over working hours.

The Irish Airline Pilots Association, which represents the pilots involved, said the strike was being held 'because pilots are already working at the limits of their legal hours, yet the company wants to simply abolish a 1994 agreement and impose longer hours.' Ryanair is apparently trying to increase working hours from 55 to 60 hours per week.

The strike is expected to disrupt flights, Reuters reported.
