Image Ryanair pilots want a deal over union recognition
There could be a breakthrough in attempts to avert Ryanair's first ever pilots' strike.
But Impact has warned that a meeting on Wednesday would come too late to prevent a 24-hour strike that day.
Impact said it would meet Ryanair management on Tuesday and "looked forward to establishing a positive relationship".
Trade union IMPACT released a statement this evening declaring the suspension of the strike action.
"Let's keep talking. Get people home quietly for Christmas", Ryanair Chief Operations Officer Peter Bellew said in a statement on Saturday.
Unions representing Ryanair pilots in Ireland and Portugal on Sunday suspended plans to strike before Christmas, lifting the threat of industrial action at the low-priced giant after it agreed on Friday to recognise trade unions for the first time.

Impact said the union would make no further comment until after the meeting with Ryanair on Tuesday.
It is the first time Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary has extended such an invitation to union leaders in the 32 years the company has been flying.
An upcoming Ryanair pilot strike has been suspended after the airline agreed to talks - much to the relief of those flying overseas for Christmas.
"If the best way to achieve this is to talk to our pilots through a recognized union process, then we are prepared to do so, and we have written today to these unions inviting them to talks to recognize them and calling on them to cancel the threatened industrial action planned for Christmas week".
Pilots in Germany had voted to take industrial action some time during the Christmas period.
The carrier admitted it had "messed up" the planning of its pilots' holidays.
