In a report from Airlive, Ryanair chief executive officer Mike O'Leary hit out at the state bailout of competitors, including Lufthansa and Air France criticizing as “financial doping” and “manifestly unfair”.

On top of a number of pilots and cabin crew losing their job, the remaining airline staff face a pay cut of around 20% and unpaid leaves.

Ryanair believes that its flight may remain suspended until July the earliest while number of passengers will not return to those similar to its 2019 numbers until around summer 2022.

It is still unclear as to exactly how many pilots and cabin crew would be affected.
