Regarding flights to or from the Canary Islands, 100% of them will be respected, as reported by Europa Press.
The stoppages are called all the TCP in the bases of Ryanair in Spain, more than a dozen, totaling about 1,900 flight attendants in total. Of these, most are hired through Crewlink and Workforce, companies that make personnel selections for the Irish company.

On Twitter he reminded his passengers to check-in online and arrive at the airport at least two hours in advance.
The ‘low cost’ Irish, with an offer that exceeds 400 routes from Spain, faced last summer its first joint strike in six European countries, which resulted in 250 canceled flights and 50,000 passengers affected. Despite this, it has closed 2018 with almost 140 million travelers, 8% more. However, it has lowered its profit forecasts by 12% for the current fiscal year, which will close on March 31.
