Ryanair Slumps as Scrapped Flights Risk Reviving Bad-Boy Image

Ryanair Slumps as Scrapped Flights Risk Reviving Bad-Boy Imageā€

Ryanair sent emails to the first affected passengers last Friday, giving them the choice of a refund or an alternative flight.

If your flight has been cancelled, ask for a refund.

Ryanair is mandated by the Irish Aviation Authority to bring staff time-off in line with the calendar year from January 1, requiring it to distribute the backlog before the end of 2017.

While it now calculates crew leave from April to March, the Irish Aviation Authority is forcing it to calculate it from January to December from the start of 2018, it added. The Irish Aviation Authority mandates that if the airline wishes to make this switch, all crew must receive their vacation time by the end of December.

You can also potentially claim on your travel insurance for lost holiday bookings or extra expenses if your flights are cancelled by Ryanair.

Ryanair has apologised for the disruption caused to passengers and said it was "working hard to fix" the problems, but that there will be a 2 per cent reduction in its 2,500 daily scheduled flights until the end of October.

"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".

According to European Union law, the company has an obligation to reroute you to your destination at "the earliest opportunity", however, exactly how long "earliest" means is yet to be tested, so you may not be able to get a flight with another airline and charge Ryanair for the fare.

The airline said it will email customers affected with offers of alternative flights or full refunds, and details of their EU261 compensation entitlement. Be sure to document what you spend, though and keep receipts.

The budget airline says the cancellations have been made in order to improve its punctuality.

"The airline will know which passengers are entitled to compensation and should pay this out automatically, so they don't have to go through the additional stress of trying to claim what they are rightly owed".

Move quickly and try to reschedule your flight as soon as you find out yours is cancelled.

Ryanair has been running its system at the limit, with 97 percent of seats occupied in August, when the carrier flew 12.7 million passengers.
