Ryanair has cancelled 150 of its 400 scheduled flights to and from Germany tomorrow.
It comes as the VC pilot union called a surprise strike in Germany which left affected passengers with 24 hours notice of flight cancellations.

While Ryanair hopes to complete much of its schedule, in the interest of minimising customer disruptions, the airline has confirmed the cancellation of 150 out of 400 flights.
All affected customers have received emails and SMS text notices this morning and have been offered a refund, free move on to the next available flight or reroute options.
Customers who have not received notices will not be disrupted and should travel to the airport as scheduled tomorrow.
Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:
“We condemn the short notice decision of the VC to call a strike on Wed 12th when Ryanair has already agreed to independent mediation/arbitration in Germany, has agreed to negotiate local contracts and has agreed to increase basic pay for German pilots.
"We apologise sincerely to our customers for this unnecessary strike and regrettable disruptions which Ryanair has done everything in its power to avoid.”
