Ryanair's German pilots to strike on Friday before holiday

"I would be very unsure about how many of our pilots will support this tomorrow", Bellew told Reuters, adding that the airline would be able to "catch up" by flights departing later if there was disruption.

It said its threat of industrial action had diminished for the time being.

However, as Ryanair attended a number of meetings with the unions, Irish pilot union IMPACT came away from the meeting disappointed with the lack of written confirmation of the airline's official recognition of pilot unions.

Ryanair pilots in Germany are set to strike for four hours tomorrow, saying that all flights planned by German airports during the period will be affected.

Germany's Cockpit (VC) said Ryanair broke off the first scheduled talks this week because it objected to two of the five union members at the table, which it said proved the company had "no desire to enter into constructive negotiations".

Ryanair last week took the unprecedented step of offering to finally recognize unions after crew in Germany, Ireland, Britain, Italy, Spain and Portugal threatened walkouts in long-running rows over pay and conditions.

Today, Ingolf Schumacher at the VC, said Ryanair's offer to negotiate with the VC "can only be classified as another publicity stunt".

"In the history of the VC, there has never been a case in which the collective bargaining autonomy has been trampled on by an employer as is now the case with Ryanair".

The Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) trade union confirmed all pilots directly employed by the airline are being asked to join a walk-out from 5.01am until 8.59am (local time) on Friday.

The airline had been facing a host of strikes across the Continent but conducted a major U-turn this month that seemed to have warded off the issue by pledging to acknowledge unions - something its boss Michael O'Leary once said would only happen when "hell freezes over".

In a statement, Ryanair said it had sent a letter confirming that is recognising Impact and its Ryanair Company Pilot Council.

The union said it will meet Ryanair management on 3 January to agree a comprehensive recognition agreement that will establish collective bargaining procedures at the airline.

"This is good news for Ryanair pilots, passengers and shareholders", she said. "We'll also be talking to the representatives of Ryanair pilots who were also involved in Tuesday's meeting", Mr Harbor added.
