Ryanair: Full list of cancelled flights over next six weeks

Budget airline admits it 'messed up' on pilot holidays

Updated: 

Ryanair has released a full list of flights which have been axed over the next six weeks.

The Irish budget airline said it has been forced to cancel up to 50 flights a day because of air traffic control delays and strikes and bad weather.

Boss Michael O'Leary also admitted the company had 'messed up' over staff holiday amid a backlog of annual leave to be taken by pilots and cabin crew, which has contributed to the disruption.

The chaos means around 40-50 flights will be cancelled every day over the next six weeks.

The airline initially released a list showing cancelled flights from Saturday to Wednesday - but have now released full details on their website for up to Saturday October 28 following pressure from ministers and consumer groups.

Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary said the company faces a compensation bill of up to 20 million euros (£17.7 million) as a result of the flight cancellations, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Speaking at a press conference on Monday afternoon he said: "Clearly there's a large reputational impact for which again I apologise. We will try to do better in future.

"In terms of lost profitability we think it will cost us something of the order of up to about five million euros (£4.4 million) over the next six weeks and in terms of the EU261 compensation we think that will be something up to a maximum of 20 million euros but much depends on how many of the alternative flights our customers take up."

He said customers whose flights have been cancelled will receive an email by Monday evening.

This will inform them what flights they can transfer to, which will be "hopefully on the same or at worse the next day".

Ryanair say refunds will be processed within seven working days back to the form of payment used for the original booking.

You can also change your flight for free.

The easiest way to change your cancelled flight for is by retrieving your booking online and clicking HERE .

Hannah Maundrell, Editor in Chief of money.co.uk said: "It's so disappointing for Ryanair passengers whose flights have been cancelled especially at such late notice.

"If your flight has been cancelled, ask for a refund. You should get your money back within 7 days or given an alternative flight. This should also apply to connecting flights you miss as a result, as long as they were booked together.

"If your flight is delayed by over 2 hours you should be able to get food and drink covered at the airport and accommodation if you need to stay overnight.

"Generally if your flight is delayed by over 3 hours you can claim compensation for the inconvenience. Cancellation amounts vary from 250 euros to 600 euros depending on your flight.

"If your other travel plans are impacted, look to your travel insurance for cover. This is when having a decent policy can really come in handy."

What about compensation?

If less than 14 days notice is given for a cancellation, airline travellers can claim up to 250 euros (£221) under EU regulation 261, depending on the timing of the alternative flight.

Customers given more warning are not entitled to a payout.

Is compensation automatic?

No, disrupted passengers must write a letter of complaint to the airline. They should keep as much evidence as they can, such as boarding cards and receipts to claim expenses.

A template letter can be found on the website of consumer watchdog Which?
