Ryanair starts the strike that will last until the end of July today. The Spanish cabin crew of the company begin this July 11th the twelve days of protests called by the unions USO and Sitcpla. The strike is in response to certain labour practices of the Irish company denounced by the workers, who warn that the contracts are not adapted to Spanish legislation. The 24-hour stoppages will take place on the 12th-15th, 18th-21st and 25th-28th July at all airports where the airline operates. In addition, on the 15th the strike called by USO for EasyJet workers at the Malaga, Palma and Barcelona bases will resume, which will last until Sunday 17th and will return next Friday 29th.

The unions already called six full days of strike on June 24th, 25th, 26th and 30th, and July 1st and 2nd, for the ten bases that the airline has in Spain: Barcelona, Madrid, Malaga, Alicante, Seville, Palma, Valencia, Girona, Santiago de Compostela and Ibiza. These first six days caused the cancellation of 215 flights to and from Spain and over 1,225 delays, although the minimum services laid down by the Spanish Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda was 100%. However, after these six days, the unions continue to demand that the airline change its attitude and sit down again to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement that includes decent working conditions for its workers under Spanish law.

How to claim lost luggage on Iberia, Vueling or Ryanair?

If your bag has been lost at the airport, you need to know how to claim it.

  • The first thing you have to do is to go to the information desk or the counter of the company you have travelled with. There you will have to fill out the Property Irregularity Report (PIR), it is essential to fill out this document before leaving the airport in order to prove that the loss occurred there. If the document is not duly filled out, no further action can be taken. The company will keep one copy and the traveller will keep another, which must be attached to the subsequent claim, along with the boarding pass and baggage tickets.
  • A formal written claim must then be filed, from the moment of receipt, the airline will have 10 days, if it is a domestic flight, or 21 days, for international flights, to either return the baggage to you or officially declare it lost. Therefore, if after 21 days there is still no trace of the baggage, you will have to file another claim for lost baggage.
