The airline said it was disappointed that no such vote was organised among the remaining 35pc of Dublin pilots who will now not receive this pay increase in the January payroll.

Pilots have criticised the airline for insisting on maintaining a system of 87 individual Employee Representative Councils which has been rejected by pilots in favour of union representation.

The increase will be paid next week after being accepted in bases including Stansted.

The pilots originally rejected the offer late a year ago over concerns about pilot staffing and employment terms and conditions. This includes Stansted and five other bases where pilots had previously rejected the company's overtures.

The memo states: "They warned us, they were going to send a message to all pilots to say that if the increase did not occur, it would be SEPLA's responsibility".

Asked for a comment on the SEPLA warning, Ryanair said it does not comment on "your rumour or speculation", or on discussions with their people in Spain or elsewhere.

Ryanair said pilots at each of its 15 United Kingdom bases, including its largest base at London Stansted, accepted pay increases of up to 20 per cent that many had rejected a year ago, sending its shares 3 per cent higher yesterday.

The majority of Ryanair's pilots in Ireland have already agreed to these pay increases voting in secret ballot at the Cork and Shannon bases, and a majority of pilots in Dublin who are contractors or new joiners have already agreed them.

Negotiations with the British Airline Pilots' Association are ongoing, the airline said, adding that the majority of flight deck crews in Ireland have already agreed to the pay increases, with the exception of its home base in Dublin.

The pay rise will see its United Kingdom pilots earning 20 percent more than direct low-priced rivals such as Norwegian Airlines and Jet2.

Talks with the Irish union, Forsa, are progressing "slowly", the company said.
