Ryanair could face €20m bill over flight cancellations

Ryanair could face €20m bill over flight cancellations

So far it has only published a list of affected flights up until Wednesday.

The airline plans to cancel 40 to 50 flights a day until the end of October, citing "tighter crewing numbers" as the result of a new employee-leave calendar that forced pilots and crew members to take time off, the Independent reported.

Between four and six flights into and out of Dublin Airport will be cancelled by Ryanair every day between now and the end of October as part of a programme that will see an average of 48 flights scrapped daily across its pan-European network, the airline has confirmed.

Mr O'Leary played down claims that the problem had been made worse by a shortage of pilots, after Norwegian Air said 140 had joined it from Ryanair.

The letter shows Ryanair pilots were only informed on 13 September of the staff shortage facing the company yet Mr Hickey outlined that it knew a year ago they may face a leave backlog.

"This increased leave at a time of ATC capacity delays and strikes (in France), has severely reduced our on-time performance over the past two weeks to under 80%".

Alex Neill, a managing director at Which? consumer service, said: "It's vital that passengers who have suffered the nightmare of Ryanair's cancelled flights are now given clear information about what they are entitled to".

Thousands of passengers vented their anger on social media.
