COLOGNE, Germany (Reuters) - Budget airline Ryanair (RYA.I) hopes to find an agreement with German unions before Christmas, Chief Marketing Officer Kenny Jacobs said on Tuesday, after pilots and cabin crew staged a full-day walkout this month and threatened further strikes.

Ryanair’s cost position would be significantly more attractive than that of rivals even if Europe’s biggest low-cost carrier struck deals with unions, he added at a travel industry conference.
