I am going on the first Ryanair flight from Hamburg to Stansted. This is the first flight of the day. I am aware of a strike on 22nd August for UK-based Ryanair crew.

Is there anyway to check if my flight will be affected by the strike?

  • The people best placed to answer are Ryanair, but even they may not know until shortly before.

Maybe; AFAIK, It is a pilot strike then there is a big chance that the plane will be grounded.

"... They plan a 48-hour strike from 00:01 on 22 August until 23.59 on 23 August, and a 72-hour strike from 00:01 on 2 September until 23.59 on 4 September..."

"It’s highly likely though that some flights will not take off, and passengers who have booked flights, or are thinking of doing so, should check with the airline. Ryanair tends to give passengers two or three days’ notice if their flight is cancelled."

    Typical Ryanair. They advertise it as a 48-hour strike but you only get 47 hours and 58 minutes... Aug 19, 2019 at 8:29
