Man fined £230 for flying into rage after being denied bacon bap on plane 

Evening Standard
A passenger who flew into a rage after he was denied a bacon roll by a flight attendant had been fined more than £200. Ronald James, 68, left a cabin crew member in tears before demanding to see the captain during a flight from Palma to Exeter in April, a court heard. He became angry on the flight when he wanted a bacon sandwich for his granddaughter but was told there was no food available, Exeter Magistrates' Court was told. Mr James told the court that they were eventually offered some beef burgers but that they were very "poor quality" and "dried out." The court heard that Mr James became extremely agitated and refused to sit down when customers were told to prepare for landing in Exeter. Mr James was fined £115 after he admitted to one count of behaving in a threatening, abusive, insulting or disorderly manner. He had to pay £100 to two victims in compensation and was ordered to pay a surcharge of £30 along with prosecution charges of £85.... read more

Ryanair strikes: Hundreds of flights to Spain, Portugal and Belgium cancelled in summer holiday walkout 

Evening Standard
Tens of thousands of Ryanair customers have had their summer holiday fights cancelled after a cabin crew strike forced the airline to ground up to 600 planes. The Irish airline has cancelled hundreds of flights to and from Spain, Portugal and Belgium on Wednesday and Thursday next week. The walkout, over pay and working conditions, coincides with the first week of the UK summer holiday which is one of the busiest time of year for holidays abroad. It will affect almost 50,000 passengers who had booked to fly to or from those three countries on July 25 or 26.

London bus driver claims temperatures in his cab reached 48C during heatwave 

Evening Standard
A London bus driver has claimed temperatures in his cab reached up to 48C during the heatwave sparking safety fears. Unite Union Representative Moe, who has been a driver for 10 years, said the hot conditions on some buses were leaving drivers feeling "faint" and "drowsy". He told the Standard that some of the vehicles did not have adequate air conditioning facilities and drivers are overheating as a heatwave continues to grip London and the south-east. Transport for London said all buses on the network since 2012 are required to have air conditioning for drivers and it said it was committed to improving conditions. It said it was encouraging bus operators to work with drivers to make sure they have a comfortable working environment. Green Party London Assembly member Caroline Russell has urged London Mayor Sadiq Khan to introduce a "maximum working temperature policy" for drivers and investigate to make sure all buses have fully working air conditioning. Moe, 31, said: "We're not driving fast enough for air to come in [to the bus cabin]. You feel drowsy sometimes and you can feel a little faint. And at the same time you have customers asking you to put the air conditioning on." He claimed hot temperatures on buses is a problem "every summer" and has argued that some buses do not have air conditioning on "at all". Moe added that drivers are overheating while trying to concentrate on driving safely and manage passengers. He said: "The highest recorded temperature I have for a bus cabin is 48C, so you can imagine that's a lot. "We are trying to concentrate in this heat so you're going to be driving slowly, which doesn't allow any air in." Hitting 45°c today in @TfL bus drivers cab. No air conditioning as TfL & bus operators make no requirement plus NO safety guidelines . Bus Drivers forced to carry on to meet mileage for private for profit bus operators. @comadad@CarolineRussell@CarolinePidgeon@SadiqKhanpic.twitter.com/I27HNeih5w - MOE (@Unite_Battersea) July 15, 2018 Ms Russell has submitted a questioned Mayor of London Sadiq Khan on the issue. She has asked Mr Khan to ask TfL to "introduce a maximum working temperature policy for bus drivers" and "to investigate the issue and ensure that bus companies operating in London have fully working air conditioning units on their buses". She said: "The reason I think it's important to ask these questions is because the Mayor wants to have a safe transport system and his drivers are working in hot conditions that seems to me to be really risky and it's the kind of the thing that can be designed out." Mr Khan is due to give an answer to Cllr Russel's questions next Wednesday. City Hall also been approached for a comment by the Standard. Claire Mann, Director of Bus Operations at TfL, said: "Buses and bus drivers play a vital role in keeping our city moving and growing, and we're committed to improving conditions for them to ensure they can continue to play this part. "We have required all new buses since 2012 to have air conditioning for drivers, and we would encourage operators to work with their drivers to ensure that they have comfortable work environments."... read more
