Ryanair Holdings PLC (LON:RYA) is seeking a High Court injunction to block strike action by its United Kingdom pilots later this week.
Ryanair has lost a High Court bid in London to block strikes by its United Kingdom pilots starting on Thursday.
Fiona Cincotta, a senior market analyst at City Index, said being granted the injunction could further damage the airline's relationship with pilots and the union.
The airline is before the High Court in London seeking the same measure for United Kingdom pilots.
It means IALPA/FORSA members would be in breach of a court order if their strike goes ahead.
Portugal's National Union of Civil Aviation Cabin Crew called the five-day walkout beginning Wednesday to protest what it alleges is Ryanair's non-compliance with Portuguese labor laws, including holiday pay and days off.

RYANAIR HAVE announced that the anticipated strikes from Ireland this week will not go ahead, something that will bring relief to anxious passengers due to travel.
"Instead Ryanair is relying on legal technicalities to try to persuade the High Court to block the strike".
Fórsa national secretary Angela Kirk said Ryanair pilots told her they'd been forced into industrial action by the company's failure to offer any significant response to their proposals over a four-month period. "Their attempt to block lawful strike action is just another demonstration of the bullying tactics the airline appears to favour".
The Irish Airline Pilots' Association (IALPA) had submitted a 30-page proposal to Ryanair management in March of this year, which sought pay levels and structures it says are in line with sector norms.
The pilots union BALPA said Ryanair has "blown" strikes resolution hopes, earlier today.
Ryanair said in a statement on Tuesday: "Balpa, who represent a small number of highly paid United Kingdom pilots should not be disrupting the return holiday flights of United Kingdom families later this week when Ryanair Captains already earn £180,000 p.a and are now seeking unjustified pay increases of between 65% to 121%".
