Ryanair provides update on flight cancellations

Ryanair cancelled flights list UK Stansted

Six Ryanair flights to and from Dublin today have been cancelled as part of the airline's plan to cancel 50 flights a day for the next six weeks.

He also said there have been no demands for new contracts.

"Will there be squabbles with pilots?"

"We believe these working conditions are leading to pilots leaving the airline after a few years to go work for other airlines".

He added:"I don't even know how there would be industrial action in Ryanair".

Ryanair has said the cancellations could run into November.

"It was the right operational decision, but we handled it badly. we upset and anxious 80 million passengers", O'Leary added.

Ryanair's O'Leary has told shareholders that 75% of passengers with cancelled flights have been rebooked and refunded.




A Ryanair aircraft lands at Ciampino Airport in Rome, Italy December 24, 2016.

Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary will host a media briefing at Ryanair HQ on Thursday morning. With pilots rejecting the latest offer, there is a risk of more cancellations in the future. The number of passengers affected is less than the initially announced 390,000, because September's preliminary reservations were 90%, compared with 70% in October, the company said.

The letter, which the BBC said comes from staff all over Europe, reportedly says new contracts will stop the large exodus of Ryanair pilots to competitors.

In an update, the airline said it had cancelled 2,100 flights to the end of October as it struggles with landing planes on time amid a reported shortage of pilots.

"The pilot market is changing, and Ryanair will need to change the ways which the pilots and management work together to ensure a stable and common future for everyone", the pilot representatives said in the letter. We asked on Monday for volunteers to work days off. "We will not be responding to anonymous circular emails".

Compensation for passengers forced to re-book could reach 20 million euros (17.7 million pounds).

Shares in Ryanair were down 0.6 percent at 16.42 euros at 1334 GMT, having briefly dropped below 16 euros while O'Leary addressed the meeting.
