RYANAIR has denied that its pilots fly even when they are sick or tired following declarations on Dutch TV.
A spokesman for Ryanair pilots appeared on Dutch TV channel KRO claiming that cabin crew have to work even when they are unwell to ensure they get paid.
A representative from Ryanair responded that in just a week, 169 pilots said they were unfit to fly and were replaced. It also stated that every day, there are more than 200 pilots on stand-by in case they need to take the place of one of their colleagues.
Pilots also stated on Dutch TV that they were forced to fly with less fuel than they would like and the Dutch Pilots Association (VNV) recently demanded an investigation into Ryanair’s policies.
