An airline stewardess working for Ryanair, who has decided to file a suit against the low-cost airline company, has told her story to Danish daily Jyllands-Posten.

She explains that staff must pay for their own uniforms, that they are not paid when required to be on call outside of scheduled work hours, and if they leave the firm before 15 months have expired they must pay €200.

These working conditions violate some national legislation as well as European regulations, the paper notes. According to a Danish labour market expert, interviewed by the daily, the airline sector is currently involved in "a race towards the bottom."
