Ryanair's Michael O'Leary admits flight cancellations have caused 'a mess'
19 Сентября 2017, 12:57 | Katrina Lee
While Ryanair said those whose flights were cancelled would get full refunds or alternative flights - the move has angered hundreds of passengers.
It is believed that up to 9,000 passengers a day could be affected by the cancellations, with the airline admitting that it had "messed up" the planning of pilot holidays.
Des Manning told KCLR Live they've been busy fielding calls about it and thankfully haven't had any of their customers affected yet.
The budget airline is under pressure to publish a full list of the flights it plans to cancel over the next six weeks as customers have become increasingly angry.
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.
On Friday, the airline blamed a combination of air traffic control delays, bad weather and a backlog in pilots' and cabin crew holiday for the cancellations.
Firstly, the company changed its holiday year from January to December rather than April to March.
Kiely added that by cancelling flights until Ryanair's winter schedule starts in early November, the carrier can restore punctuality to a target of 90 percent. Some 162 flights were dropped between Saturday and Sunday with another 164 due to be cut through Wednesday.
