The union representing Ryanair pilots in Germany has announced that it is calling for the airline's German-based pilots to strike tomorrow - Friday, December 22 - from 5am to 9am (04.00 to 08:00 UTC) at all German airports.
"I would be very unsure about how many of our pilots will support this tomorrow", Bellew told Reuters, adding that the airline would be able to "catch up" by flights departing later if there was disruption.
The action forms part of a long-running dispute over conditions, the pilots' union Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) said on Thursday.
Those were the first since Ryanair had offered on Friday to recognise trade unions, prompting the suspension of strike action planned over the busy festive period - when many travellers head overseas for Christmas and New Year celebrations.
German union VC called for the strike on Thursday and said that 16 flights would be affected.

"If the best way to achieve this is to talk to our pilots through a recognised union process, then we are prepared to do so, and we have written today to these unions inviting them to talks to recognise them and calling on them to cancel the threatened industrial action planned for Christmas week", he said.

Ryanair pilots' strike for tomorrow called off
Over the weekend, pilots called off a threatened pre-Christmas one-day strike that was planned for tomorrow (December 20th). The low-priced carrier said it was making the move to avoid "widespread customer disruptions over Christmas".
Ryanair's conditional offer to recognize pilot unions prompted unions in other European countries to suspend their strike plans.
In a letter to the union obtained by Bloomberg, Eddie Wilson, Ryanair's chief people office, proposed an agenda for the January meeting while saying the union delegation should be composed of VC officials and "currently employed Ryanair pilots in Germany".
Impact said it expected management to reach agreement on procedures quickly so the parties could move on to negotiate substantial issues around pilots' pay and working conditions.
Ryanair said separately that it had formally recognized Impact while also submitting proposals on issues including pay and dispute resolution.
Meetings have taken place this week between Ryanair and IMPACT with the next key meeting scheduled for January 3, where the aim is to agree a recognition agreement that will establish collective bargaining procedures.
"This is good news for Ryanair pilots, passengers and shareholders", she said.
"This breakthrough, which was made possible by the principled resolve of Ryanair pilots, should be an encouragement to workers across the economy".
