Ryanair: New cancellations from November to March; some 400000 passengers affected

The company has angered many passengers by cancelling flights after being left short-staffed by a botched revamp of its internal vacation planning.

Numerous flights have zero bookings at this time, the carrier said.

Though over 99 percent of the airline's 129 million customers will not be affected, O'Leary said "we deeply regret any doubt we caused existing customers last week about Ryanair's reliability, or the risk of further cancellations".

The budget airline previously announced it would have to cancel up to 50 flights a day following a pilot rostering error.

The reduction in flights will "eliminate all risk of further flight cancellations, because slower growth creates lots of spare aircraft and crews across Ryanair's 86 bases this winter", it said.

"All of the passengers who have been affected by these disruptions have now been offered re-accommodation or full refunds and their applicable €261 entitlements".

They have also received a Euro 40 (EUR 80 return) travel voucher which will allow them to book - during October - a flight on any Ryanair service between October and March 2018.

As well as Glasgow, all their flights from Edinburgh to London will also be cancelled with no flights to London leaving Scotland. The airline also said it would no longer pursue its takeover of Italian airline Alitalia.

Hannah Maundrell, editor in chief at Money.co.uk said: "It's so disappointing for Ryanair passengers whose flights have been cancelled, even with more notice this time it's still seriously frustrating".

Spending below this amount or on debit card may be able to be reclaimed under "Chargeback" but unlike Section 75, this is not a legal requirement.

As a result, it had to allocate annual leave to pilots in September and October. "We sincerely apologise for the cancellation of your flight (s)".

There was no immediate indication of how costly to Ryanair the latest cancellations would be.

"Aside from this, generally if your flight is delayed by over 3 hours you can claim compensation for the inconvenience".

The new cancellations are in addition to those affected by the cuts made earlier this month.
