The of Europe's biggest low-cost airline has promised to increase the pay and working of pilots to stop them leaving the company. Michael O'Leary, CEO of Ryanair, made a pledge to the budget carrier's 4,200 pilots to address concerns that pilots are and want to quit the company. Pilots have been offered salary of up to $11,700 and bonuses of $14,000. A long-serving pilot told the BBC this was, "too little, too ." He said: "There is a of basic benefits [for pilots] - no free bottles of water, coffee or tea and no meals." He said pilots also had to buy their own uniform. He added: "People have just had enough of the atmosphere."

Mr O'Leary is attempting to repair the done to Ryanair's after a scheduling error with pilot holidays. The costly mistake meant more than 20,000 flights have been cancelled recently because of a lack of pilots. This has affected over 700,000 . An industry analyst said the airline made this costly , "by initially disrespecting the skill set of pilots". He added: "In a move, [Ryanair] is being forced to backpedal, apologize and meet [pilots'] demands." O'Leary is that pilots will stay. He said: "I urge you to stay with Ryanair for a brighter, better for you and your family." He added: "We are a very secure employer in a very industry."
