Boss Micheal O'Leary remains bullish, maintains new plane orders, and says "real progress" on union recognition in several markets, but Ireland and Portugal lag behind.


Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary has jetted in to Brussels to report on progress in his company's recognition of unions, but also to warn of the possibility of holiday problems ahead for travellers in the near future.

"We're very close to concluding agreements in Spain and Italy, and expect that they will be finalized within the next month. We're not making as much progress in other countries, most notably Ireland and in Portugal, so we expect some disruptions, there may be some disruptions possibly over Easter, maybe during the summer period," he said.

Ryanair only just averted a Christmas strike by pilots but since then has nailed down agreements with staff at many locations while struggling with roster errors and a lack of personnel as many left for rival operators.

However the irrepressible O'Leary remains bouyant about the fortunes of Europe's biggest airline.
