DUBLIN (Reuters) – Ryanair <RYA.I> cabin crew in Spain, Portugal, Italy and Belgium are planning coordinated strikes and will announce dates for the action on Thursday, an official with Spanish union SITCPLA said.

Irish Ryanair pilots on Tuesday announced a strike for July 12 complaining that the airline, Europe’s largest low-cost carrier, had failed to improve conditions sufficiently after recognizing unions for the first time in December.

The announcement of dates for the cabin crew strike has been delayed until Thursday as an Italian union is seeking regulatory approval for the timing of the strike, said Antonio Escobar, a spokesman for Spanish union SITCPLA told Reuters on Wednesday.
