Ryanair offers €12000 bonus to pilots who give up leave

Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary admitted for the fist time today that his airline cancelled nearly 2,000 flights because it doesn't have enough pilots, leading angry shareholders to criticise his "gung-ho management attitude".
Ryanair has been forced to cancel around 50 flights a day until the end of October due to a mess-up over its pilot leave.
Ryanair pilots have not threatened industrial action, the airline's chief executive has said.
Referring to pilots' pay, he said: "Maybe we have got it a bit on the low side".
Passengers on cancelled flights have complained that notice was far to short and that it was hard to claim compensation.
"Since there is no requirement in aviation regulation to provide annual leave per se, it is unclear what is compelling Ryanair to provide any leave to their pilots at this time", the association said.
"We would like to advise that with immediate effect, the pilot workforce at the bases [airports] listed below rescind the goodwill that has been extended toward the company for many years, including working days off and turning up early". We asked on Monday for volunteers to work days off.
Since passengers were alerted of the details of which flight would be affected, pilots have since responded to Ryanair's bonus payments offers for working overtime.
But the statement from the Italian Competition Authority said the investigation would look at whether managerial problems were to blame, rather than "random, external" circumstances beyond the airline's control - and whether the disruption could have been prevented. Some analysts have suggested this could help staff to secure improved conditions.
Ryanair has said it expects up to 20 million euros in compensation claims and 5 million euros in lost fares as a result of the cancellations, though analysts estimated the total cost could be higher.
Consumer group Which? told the Daily Telegraph that it believes Ryanair's efforts are insufficient and have left customers "hunting around for information", meaning they could fall foul of the rules.
