Ryanair publishes full six-week flight cancellation list

The Ryanair CEO stated: "All customers on the affected flights will receive an email highlighting the alternative flights they can transfer to hopefully on the same day".

The airline is facing tens of millions in lost revenue as a result of the cancellations, refunds and compensation claims under European Union aviation rules, Liberum analyst Gerald Khoo said.

"This is clearly a mess up, I take responsibility for the mess up and I have to clear it up. Not good. Won't be flying with Ryanair again".

"We have operated a record schedule (and traffic numbers) during the peak summer months of July and August but must now allocate annual leave to pilots and cabin crew in September and October (while still running the bulk of our summer schedule)".

Pressure grows in Ryanair to release full list of cancelled flights

According to Bloomberg, the cancellations affect between 308,000 and 385,000 passengers.

The airline, which has been bolstering its transatlantic charge this year, said it had recruited 400 pilots since the start of the year, and 140 of those have come from rival Ryanair.

The cancellations brought bad publicity for an airline which has worked hard over the past few years to improve its image.

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".
