    Unfortunately, they’re always right, even when wrong.

    Happened me twice, Liverpool and France(once weather, other French strike) They would refund price or next available flight.
    In Liverpool with weather it was the following day and from Leeds/Bradford.
    In France, the next available flight was 3 days later. Got a refund of about 20 quid as was cheap flight. Booked an Aer lingus flight that departed.
    I'd suggest if flight cancelled you would want to be one of the first to try get a reschedule as there will be a massive number in the same situation . I'm not sure whether you'd be better try get a reschedule at airport desk or over phone....

    Can't see it being more than a day and it looks like they may avert the strike anyway so nothing to worry about. If you're wrong the missus will love all the grovelling you will have to do so she really can't lose

    Anyone fancy guessing how this all ends? Have Portugal booked for the last week in August, the drip drip nature of this has me concerned.

    Normally the Labour Court calls them in and investigates it. Ryanair are facing into strikes or industrial action in a few places in Europe over the next few weeks, I can't remember all the countries now but at least three. They need to put this to bed quick enough.

    Saw this earlier,

    Ryanair scratchcards. Any truth to this?


    Dave writes:

    "I have just returned from holiday courtesy of Ryanair. During the flight, the cabin crew were punting the Ryanair charity scratch cards. They were selling them using the children's hospice charity CHAS which, they said, benefited from their sale. They also said that you had the chance of winning 1 million euro. They must have sold at least 25 cards on board our flight. On later investigation, I discovered that in 2013 they sold about 16 million euro worth of scratch cards, and distributed 55,000 euro to charities, ie about 0.3%, or less than 1 cent for each 2 euro scratch card went to charity. There is also only one card per year with the chance of winning the million euro, but if you are lucky enough to get this card, you are then invited to choose from 125 envelopes, only one of which has a cheque for 1 million euro. The million euro will only be won once every 125 years. This is an utterly cynical way for Michael O'Leary and Ryanair to increase their profits, using a children's cancer charity to do so. They could hardly stoop any lower."

    I think I also read that the workers need to sell them to hit their quotas too.
