“After four rounds of talks there is no satisfactory offer,” the union said in a statement.

Cabin crew represented by Verdi will join crews in Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Portugal, as well as German pilots, which have already prompted Ryanair to cancel a total of almost 250 flights.
