Sir - It's a no-brainer to treat staff well. It makes economic sense! I presume Ryanair has made the calculations of the projected loss if the strike goes ahead on Thursday. It's not only the cost of rearranging people's flights - possibly €2m plus - but then on top of that the reluctance of all those customers ever to fly with Ryanair again.

It always makes economic sense to treat people well in the workplace. I'm sure that's true if you worked out the cost of recruitment versus retention. I also have a strong personal reason for writing - two of my good friends are getting married in Eguisheim, France on Saturday. The nearest airport is Basel and most of the guests, including the elderly parents of the groom, are flying on Thursday, the day of the planned strike.

The next direct flight with Ryanair is on Saturday itself, the day of the wedding - not giving enough time to make it to the ceremony on time.
