Ryanair pilot group demands chief executive Michael O'Leary quits the airline



A group representing Ryanair pilots has called on chief executive Michael O'Leary to quit, claiming it is "inevitable" the airline is facing more costly cancellations.
 
In its letter, the European Employee Representative Council (EERC) - an unofficial body representing mostly pilots based on the continent - tells him the no-frills carrier has failed to stem an exodus of pilots to rivals.


Ryanair faced down a wave of anger before Christmas by saying it would, for the first time in its history, recognise unions.


While that climbdown averted the prospect of strikes during the crucial festive season, the airline has only struck a recognition deal with a union representing British-based flyers since then.


Mr O'Leary has admitted strikes are likely over Easter as a result of continuing issues, though the EERC has dismissed that as "alarmist" and continued to offer mediation services.
