Cabin Crew Ryanair - Germany
Started in the company over 5 months ago have been off sick on 3 occasions one occasion which was signed off by my doctor, Have been informed i have to go for a meeting in Dublin regarding sick days.
Which will probably lead to dismissal right in time before the unpaid leave what a coincidence.
Based in Germany with no help with accommodation or living expenses the company are a joke who do not care about there staff.
There are no benefits of working with this company apart from flying experience which hopefully will help other young people to move on to a better company who actually CARE about there staff, the negativity is unbelievable. The amount of money each individual has spent to get where they are in the company and not one word of appreciation. All they care about is sales, What do they want us to do FORCE a passenger to purchase something?
If i am dismissed from the company i can actually say i will be happy to return home and apply for other company's who appreciate the hard work and the shit the staff have to deal with day in and day out!
New recruits please remember,Termination at Ryanair will damage your career in aviation.All airlines require a 5 year work/study record which will involve a reference from Ryanair..In our 4 year Campaign only 2 Terminated former Ryanair probationary cabin crew have worked for other airline's after TERMINATION.What good is flying experience with a company with up to 60% of new recruits Terminated under 12 months,most being Terminated under 6 months so Ryanair can recover back the New Joiners Allowance....
Ryanair treat you like slaves whilst they take your money with help from the Bank Of Ireland....
As you can see news from Spain is that Exploiter of young people Mr Michael O'Leary has sent a letter to the Spanish Government regarding a campaign against Ryanair...We must point out that Ryanairdontcare;s 4 year legitimate campaign against Ryanair will continue to stop Ryanair damaging so many more young probationary cabin crew all over Europe for PROFIT...
Ryanair's Michael O'Leary will continue to lie and continue to put PROFIT before the safety of passengers and crew on his aircraft.
As you will see from the article below the investigation regards the three emergency landings the very same day in July is being conducted by the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) who have many former Ryanair employees on their books.
Michael O'Leary has told the Spanish public works minister that he will send the findings of these three serious incidents when they are made public. WE CAN CONFIRM THE IAA ARE THE OFFICIAL AVIATION AUTHORITY INVESTIGATOR AND HAVE CONFIRMED THEIR FINDINGS WILL NOT BE MADE PUBLIC...As you can see Scum bag Michael O'Leary doing what he knows best ''Lie''.......
Ryanair's Michael O'leary's philosophy: "Since it is explained on the company's website that boarding passes should be printed in advance, any inconvenience or expense suffered by the customer who has failed to comply is regarded as entirely reasonable.
This is the new Baader-Meinhof Gang....
AM I imagining this or was there a time when Michael O’Leary’s foul-mouthed, hyper-arrogant swagger seemed robustly endearing?
It wasn’t so long ago that, simply by appearing on television without a tie, a successful businessman could give the impression he was some sort of benevolent anarchist. Richard Branson has been getting away with that particular fraud since the late Crustacean period. But the Ryanair boss was always a little too sharp-elbowed to convince as a cuddly hippie.
Even those Victorian rubber barons who – unless Marxist cartoons have led me astray – used to feed the poor into mincing machines stopped short of labelling their customers as idiots and telling them to bugger off.
The latest O’Leary charm offensive concerns a young mother named Suzy McLeod. Arriving for a flight from Alicante to Bristol, the unfortunate woman learnt that, not having printed boarding passes in advance, she would be forced to pay €60 each for herself, her parents and her two children. “I had to pay €300 for them to print out a piece of paper,” she wrote on Facebook. “Please ‘like’ if you think that’s unfair.” More than half a million people duly obliged.
In O’Leary’s defence, you could never accuse him of being evasive when such controversies arise. He doesn’t knock together weaselly excuses concerning the price of inkjet cartridges or the man-hours soaked up by repeated hitting of the “print” key. A man of many words (all punctuated by exclamation marks), he manages dissent with the same delicacy that Josef Stalin brought to his own negotiations with the politically unconvinced.
Utilising withering, schoolteacher sarcasm, he commented: “As you know, there are no internet cafés in Alicante, there are no hotels in Alicante that would provide print-outs and no fax machines so that some friend or colleague at home could print them out and fax them down to you.”
He went on to explain that some “99.98 per cent” of passengers print boarding passes in advance (really?) and that: “To those who don’t, we say quite politely: ‘Bugger off.’” His response to a letter from Ms McLeod was characteristic. “It was your f**k-up,” he commented.
This particular issue offers a chilling, depressing demonstration of the Ryanair philosophy in action. Since it is explained (and it is) on the company’s website that boarding passes should be printed in advance, any inconvenience or expense suffered by the customer who has failed to comply is regarded as entirely reasonable. This is pretty much how the Baader-Meinhof Gang operated: if you don’t do what I say then you are responsible for what I do.
The fact that the reprinting of passes is an operation – like providing seatbelts or filling the plane with fuel – that virtually every other airline offers for free is not seen as relevant. But the pass is not some lovely souvenir of your journey to an airport in the vague vicinity of a major European city. It merely allows you to get on the plane.
Ryanair is charging you €60 to make the journey. But you’ve already paid for the journey. Haven’t you? Where will such logic end? Might the unfortunate tourist, after arriving at the airport without the relevant piece of paper, find herself being dragged on to the concourse and beaten senseless with rubber hoses?
“What are you screaming about, you f**king idiot?” the Ryanair enforcers will bellow. “Weren’t there any internet cafés in Riga? Stop punching yourself in the face! Stop punching yourself in the face!” (Sorry, Michael. That is very unfair. Ryanair would never stoop to beating up its customers. After all, there’s no money in it.)
Why do punters put up with such inconveniences? Well, when budget airlines arrived, customers willingly signed up to a not entirely unreasonable compromise. You pay a hitherto unimaginably low price for your ticket but, as a consequence, you forgo a number of privileges previously regarded as immovable aspects of the airline experience. You can’t select your seat in advance. You may be forced to fly to an airport some distance from your ultimate destination. You will sit in the class of moulded plastic seat more suitable to bus-station waiting rooms.
But to describe the issuing of boarding passes at the airport as any sort of luxury is to betray the noble science of semantics. Ryanair has determined it can legally charge for the service. Therefore, it charges. That’s all there is to it.
What is, however, particularly depressing about this business is the implication that, just because you pay a low fare, you should be prepared to accept abuse from the airline’s prime mover.
Perhaps I am misreading the situation. If Mr O’Leary were chief executive of Rolls-Royce he may very well call his customers “idiots” for expecting each vehicle to come with an ivory backscratcher. It seems, however, unlikely that – if so minded – he would remain in such a post for very long. Ryanair customers, even those without printers, deserve the same respect as limousine owners.
I am aware of the SCUM airline Ryanair ripping passengers off as are the Irish times now but what about the thousands of young probationary cabin crew at Ryanair who are damaged for life as a result of Michael O'Leary and David Bonderman's policy of Recruitment for Termination which has been in place since 2004.....
As you can see below the Spanish Unions are aware of the bad treatment of probationary Spanish cabin crew and Pilots at Ryanair..Other unions need to also get involved...The letter below was sent to the Spanish Government from Spanish unions in 2009 and have some very important points, a must read... http://www.scribd.com/doc/22704829/ryanair-spain-unions-EN-SP
Michael O'Leary is on the money. In an outburst that's been likened to Gerald Ratner's ruinous admission that he sold "crap" in his discount jewellery shops, the Ryanairchief executive has described thousands of his customers as "idiots".
O'Leary was specifically referring to airline passengers who turn up at the airport without printed boarding passes but the idiot tag could just as fairly be attached to anyone who travels by air.
We are idiots to stand for the shoddy treatment and bullying attitude meted out by O'Leary and other titans of the avaricious airline industry.
We are idiots to tolerate the miserable experience that a trip to the airport has become.
We are idiots to collude in the fiction that we are getting "cheap" flights when we fork out a nominal fee for a ticket that everyone knows is merely the opening gambit in a bamboozling process of cash-extraction.
Despite O'Leary's eagerness to pose as a blunt-speaker, however, this is not the kind of candour for which he would like to be renowned.
Ryanair passengers will put up with a lot -- fiendishly hidden baggage charges, a huge mark-up on a bottle of still water -- but few will put up with being called stupid by a tycoon who has built an empire on the back of their custom.
In fairness, O'Leary's reaction to the latest row suggests he is slowly waking up to the fact that, just as aeroplanes can suffer from metal fatigue, there comes a point where the endurance of even the sturdiest customer-base starts to wane.
The controversy began when Suzy McLeod, a mother of two from Berkshire, complained about being hit with €300 in fees when she arrived for a return flight from Spain without printed boarding cards. Ryanair passengers are expected to check in on line and print out their passes in advance. But because McLeod was on holiday, staying in a rural villa without Internet access, she was unable to comply with this stipulation.
McLeod took to Twitter to recount her dealings with,Ryanair and her story quickly became an on line phenomenon attracting over 500,000 followers. O'Leary's dismissive and boorish response intensified the uproar.
"Mother pays £200 for being an idiot and failing to comply with her agreement at the time of booking," he said, sarcastically summarising what he felt was a non-story. He also added. "We think Mrs McLeod should pay €60 for being so stupid".
Within days, O'Leary was rowing back, insisting he meant no offence to McLeod. "I was not calling her stupid, but all those passengers are stupid who think we will change our policies or our fees," he insisted. The modest change of what passes for O'Leary's heart suggests that new realities are not entirely lost on him.
Traffic-wise, Ryanairis flying high. The airline carried a record 8.9 million passengers in August, up almost 10pc on the previous month. Its reach is spreading -- but this rapid growth creates new threats. The bigger Ryanair gets, the more vulnerable it becomes to mass customer revolt.
Given the speed with which tales of corporate heavy-handedness spread via social media, O'Leary is wise to take greater care in how he talks about his passengers.
Even if his language moderates, however, it's unlikely to affect the manner in which his airline treats the travelling public. And, in that case, it's travellers who should reconsider their position.
Before allowing passengers to board a flight, airport security scrutinise every fibre of our person and personal effects, down to our shoes, belts and wallets. Unless airlines introduce a modicum of courtesy and respect into their customer relations, we should demand that they also have our heads examined.
