What has Ryanair's boss said?

Ryanair chief executive Michael O’Leary said demand for future bookings is “terrible”.

He told Sky News: “Into November and December our forward bookings are running at around 10 per cent, that’s about a quarter of where they would normally be at this time of the year.

“We can’t rule out job losses but in Ryanair we’re certainly desperately working with our people to prevent them.”
