Ryanair cancellations: What we know so far

Ryanair plans to cancel up to 50 flights a day for the next six weeks

Furious passengers had been swamping the airline with demands to know if their flight was among the 40-55 the airline said it would cancel every day over the next six weeks.

Ryanair (RYA.I) boss Michael O'Leary admitted on Monday to a "cock up" over pilot shortages that led him to cancel flights and disrupt the plans of hundreds of thousands of travelers in his bid to improve the budget airline's punctuality.

On Saturday, the airline released a list of all of the flights that have been cancelled until Wednesday September 20.

Hannah Maundrell, editor in chief of price comparison site Money.co.uk, says: "It's so disappointing for Ryanair passengers whose flights have been cancelled especially at such late notice".

"It must arrange alternative flights or provide a full refund for everyone affected".

When questioned on why the airline still appeared to be selling tickets for flights set to be cancelled, O'Leary said it was due to planned flight cancellations only being finalised "25 minutes" before their Dublin press conference.

"Pilot recruitment is also underway for more pilots for our new Dublin base opening later this year", Norwegian added.

"Ryanair must urgently publish the full schedule of impacted flights".

Houston Texans vs. Cincinnati Bengals
The Texans were bad on both sides of the ball, and need to get into shape in a hurry if they want to contend for the division. The Cincinnati offense reached the red zone three times , and couldn't punch it in, instead settling for three field goals.

He said it was not for the Commission to comment on the operational decisions of an airline, but that Ryanair had to comply with the rules. You should get your money back within seven days or given an alternative flight.

Ryanair blamed a number of factors for the sudden cancellations including a backlog of staff leave, which must be taken by the end of the year.

If you are in the first two weeks of cancellations, you have the right to claim compensation if you choose to take a refund instead of changing your flight. This is typically €250 per person, or a reduced amount if the alternative route offered by Ryanair arrives at your original destination within two to four hours of the original flight.

Embarrassingly for a multinational company, the disruption occurred because Ryanair "messed up" the planning of its pilots' holiday leave.

The full schedule of cancelled flights from September 21 to October 31 will be published later today - follow Independent.ie for the news as it happens.

If you are affected, it's vital you claim additional compensation from Ryanair.

Until this is released, it should let passengers cancel their flights without penalty.

The flight must have departed from an EU airport, operating by any airline, or it must be arriving into an EU airport and be operated by an EU airline. "We advise customers to check the email address used to make their booking", said a spokesperson for the airline.
