Ryanair claims to be Europe’s favourite airline, but it seems that it hasn’t won any favour with some of its former employees.

A trade union is supporting two former flight attendants who said they were unfairly dismissed and accuse Ryanair of having a ‘culture of fear‘. They claim that working conditions are poor and there is no sick leave pay. The former employees were living in Norway, one of the most expensive countries in Europe, and were said to be receiving a ‘southern country wage’.

Ryanair claims that the union is using this case to divert attention away from job cuts and pay negotiations from another airline.

Do the flight attendants have a case worth fighting for, or is Ryanair doing things by the book?
