Ryanair and the Irish pilots' union look set to meet for talks next week in a bid to avert a pre-Christmas strike.

It was announced earlier today that next week's strike action would go ahead unless Ryanair management arranged to meet with IMPACT ahead of Wednesday's strike action.

Impact said the union would make no further comment until after the meeting with Ryanair on Tuesday.

The strike has been suspended as company management have agreed to recognise the union of pilots based in Ireland.

The Irish carrier offered to recognise unions for the first time on Friday after pilots in Ireland, Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain and Portugal threatened walkouts.

It has asked the airline to release its pilot representatives so they can prepare for and attend the meeting.

Claims by two analysts that Mr O'Leary's position as chief executive, which he has held since 1994, was being questioned by investors were met with a terse response from the airline.

Ryanair, Europe's second-largest airline by passenger numbers, has been forced to cancel 20,000 flights through to March because of pilot scheduling problems stretching back to September.

'Christmas flights are very important to our customers and we wish to remove any worry or concern that they may be disrupted by pilot industrial action next week, ' said Michael O'Leary.

"Recognising unions will be a significant change for Ryanair, but we have delivered radical change before, most recently when we launched Ryanair Labs and our highly successful Always Getting Better customer improvement programme in 2013".
