Ryanair pilots vote for strike action

UK-based Ryanair pilots have voted to strike in a row over pay and conditions.
The British Airline Pilots Association (Balpa) has announced two walkouts, one from 22-23 August, while the second strike will be from 2-4 September.
It said pilots did not want to disrupt people's travel plans but felt they had no choice after "decades of Ryanair refusing to deal with unions".
But the airline said the "ill-timed" strikes would endanger pilot jobs.
It comes days after the budget airline warned of job losses following a 21% fall in quarterly profits, due to higher costs for fuel and staff, and reduced ticket prices.
