Ryanair has slammed German pilots joining Friday's day of strike action in Europe.

The airline has cancelled 250 flights to and from the country in what they call an 'unjustified strike'.

Ryanair has criticised German pilots for joining their counterparts in a 24 hour strike in Ireland, Belgium and Sweden.

The Vereinigung Cockpit  confirmed industrial action at a press conference earlier over pay and working conditions.

The airline has criticised the short notice after the VC refused to give 7 days notice so the airline could minimise customer disruption.

They're also calling on the VC to continue negotiations rather than strikes and consider the the revised proposal on a collective Labour Agreement that they sent them on Friday the 3rd of August.

Affected customers will be notified this afternoon and can take a refund, free flight move or reroute.

24 hour stoppages will take place in Ireland, Germany, Belgium and Sweden on Friday while pilots in the Netherlands have yet to decide whether on not they will join the strikes.
