Ryanair pilot strike stopped by High Court in Dublin

Around 180 pilots who are members of IALPA are due to take industrial action in a dispute over pay and conditions

It means IALPA/FORSA members won't be able to go on strike tomorrow and Friday.

While there is not yet a verdict on the London court case, which Ryanair has called "unjustified strike by a small number of pilots going ahead during the last week of the United Kingdom school holidays", the airline hopes strikes would not affect holidays.

In Ireland, a court granted Ryanair's application for an injunction, preventing some Ireland-based pilots at the airline from taking strike action on Thursday and Friday.

"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".

In a statement, the union said it "vehemently repudiates yet another attempt by the government to annihilate the right to strike of the Portuguese and, in particular, Ryanair's crew", ensuring that it does not accept "defending the economic interests of a private company and to the detriment of the rights of Portuguese workers ".

The pilots union BALPA said Ryanair has "blown" strikes resolution hopes, earlier today.

NY officer at centre of Eric Garner's death fired
Former police officer Daniel Pantaleo used a chokehold to kill Eric Garner as police attempted to arrest him on suspicion of selling loose, untaxed cigarettes on a sidewalk.

The airline is before the High Court in London seeking the same measure for United Kingdom pilots.

Further more, Ryanair said: "British pilots earning six figure annual salaries should not be threatening the holiday flights of thousands of British passengers and their families (very few of whom earn over £170,000 p.a.)".

Ryanair pilots who are members of Balpa are also planning a 72-hour strike from 00.01 BST on 2 September until midnight on 4 September.

RYANAIR HAVE announced that the anticipated strikes from Ireland this week will not go ahead, something that will bring relief to anxious passengers due to travel. It raised the issue of whether Europe's biggest budget airline would offer compensation to passengers if they ended up being unable to fly.

Paul Gott QC, for Ryanair, told Mrs Justice Lambert during the hearing that strike action could be "enormously disruptive", and Ryanair would suffer "significant reputational" damage.
