I Am Serious And Don’t Call Me Shirley


From top: Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary; Irish pilot payslip for June 2018

Their payslips?

Ryanair has taken the unusual step of publishing staff pay and benefit details online as workers for the airline stage strikes.

Ryanair posted details on its website of pilots’ monthly and annual salaries, which included captains from Ireland, the UK, Belgium, Germany and Portugal.

The airline claimed the pilots earned between €190,000 and €220,000 (£169,000 and £195,000) year.

It also said cabin crew earned up to €40,000 (£36,000) a year – “more than double the living wage”.

    Why not do this? It’s good to put the pilot unions claims into perspective. Being an airline pilot gives you alot of legal benefits (very little actually flying time per month) and a high salary.

    No wonder there are no women pilots. That’s too much money for a ladybrain. I mean, you could get a gazillion copies of Grazia for that kinda money.

      The trick is to send someone out to do it for you! Financial Management is the art of Delegation.

    Some of the demands they want are little over board but everyone has the right to strike. Saying that though, if the wage amounts published are true and they still want more perks I’d sack everyone thats out. But one thing notice the cabin crew is UP TO 40,000. How many hours for that salary.

        That 900 hours (for pilots) is 900 hours of flying (technically it is when they are in control of the plane – so it includes taxiing to/from the runway as well as in the air).

        The pilots work more than 900 hours. The spend time before/after the flights preparing the planes.

        I would guess that the same would apply to the cabin crew, and a 900hr limit would be flying hours.

    ah I’m not buying those numbers

    if cabin crew supposedly clears just short of 4 grand a month I’ve been a fool for most of my career. possibly a senior manager in charge of cabin crew methinks

    I know none of this is about salary but those numbers I suspect are arse

      A few years ago I interviewed for cabin crew in Ryanair. I wouldn’t call that an accurate representation of what the average cabin crew make, just going by what I was offered.

      Some do, I’ve no doubt. But that wasn’t the average six or so years ago.

    Why black out bits that obviously aren’t personal information? What are the other payments?
