Spain: 12-day Ryanair strike
Some 41,000 flight connections cancelled across Europe from July to September
Some 11,000 flight connections were cancelled across Europe in June; at least 70,000 have been cancelled since April. As companies risk paying 453 million euros in compensation to some 1.5 million travelers due to delays and last minute cancellations, some low-cost airlines staff are announcing numerous protests throughout July.
Following Saturday's disruptions to hundreds of flights in Spain, the Ryanair and easyJet airline cabin crew strike announced 12 more days of mobilizations throughout the month in the Iberian country. They will protest three more times: July 12 to 15, July 18 to 21, and July 25 to 28. The disruptions will affect 10 Spanish airports where Ryanair operates.
Meanwhile, for the months of July, August and September, the companies have canceled an additional 41,000 routes. The disruptions will affect about 7 million potential travelers. The reductions were announced by airlines Lufthansa, Swiss, Austrian Airlines, Eurowings, Air France-Klm, British Airways, easyJet, and Sas. Chaos also in the United States where Airlines for America estimates that 15 percent of flights scheduled between July and August have been canceled.
