Ryanair cancellations leaving passengers up in the air

Customers affected by the cancellations will be emailed with offers of alternative flights on the same or next day, or full refunds if they choose not to take an alternative flight, plus details of their EU261 compensation entitlement, the airline said.

The Dublin-listed budget airline next week celebrates the fourth anniversary of its Always Getting Better campaign, which Chief Executive Michael O'Leary has described as an effort to stop "unnecessarily pissing people off".

However, Ryanair has so far only revealed which flights will be cancelled up until Wednesday this week, leaving many passengers in the dark about whether their journeys will take place.

Among those cancelled with be one in four flights out of Stansted and one in 13 flights out of Dublin. It also faces paying compensation of 250 euros ($300) per traveler for flights canceled on less than two weeks' notice.

Over the weekend, 16 flights were cancelled at the two airports.

Ryanair have announced a series of emergency personnel measures to ease the pressure on the raft of flight cancellations the company has made since Friday.

The Commission for Aviation Regulation says passengers are entitled to a refund or an alternative flight.

We had already received the information on the cancelled flights up to Wednesday 20 September, and these new details run from Monday 25 September to Saturday 28 October.

STV News has asked the airline when the full list of affected flights will be published.

There are multiple flights to and from Ireland to be found on most of the days of cancellations.

The holiday issue arose from a change from holiday allowance in the company running for a fiscal year to a calendar year.

If you are affected you should have received an email, otherwise your flight should remain unchanged.

If passengers have booked other services via the airline like auto hire, then they should also include details of this in their compensation claim.

"It's also essential that Ryanair release a full list of flights that will be affected so that passengers have as much time as possible to make alternate arrangements".

He added that airlines must ensure "customers are fully compensated" in the event of any disruption or cancellation. Passengers onboard these flights can either rebook or get a refund for their travel.
