In Norwegen läuft ein Boykott-Aufruf gegen den irischen Billigflieger Ryanair. Die britische Zeitung Travel Weekly zitiert ehemalige Flugbegleiter/innen aus norwegischen Medien:

  • Employees had to pay for training and uniforms
  • Employment could be terminated at any time, with from 0-14 days’ notice.
  • Crew were required to pay a €200 fee to resign in the first 15 months of the contract.
  • Hourly pay was set at the equivalent of $21 an hour in flight, with no extra pay for weekends or holidays.
  • There was no sick pay.
  • Crew were entitled to 20 days holiday, booked well in advance but subject to cancellation if Ryanair required staff to work.
  • Employees were required to take at least four weeks’ unpaid leave a year.
  • Crew were required to be on standby for work without payment and be able to report within an hour.
  • Participation in union action was grounds for immediate dismissal.
  • Contract terms were to remain confidential, with violation grounds for dismissal.

Ryanair-Chef Michael O’Leary bestreitet die Vorwürfe. Er halte sich an irisches Recht und niemand müsse für Ryanair arbeiten.

Und ich hatte mich schon gewundert, dass mein Ryanair-Ticket von Bremen nach Oslo (das ich eh schon mit einem unguten Gefühl gekauft habe) drei Euro kostet (plus 25 Euro für den Koffer und diverser anderer Nebenkosten ist es immer noch billig). Und jetzt? Ticket wegschmeissen oder trotzdem mitfliegen?
