400000 hit by new Ryanair cancellations to solve pilot crisis

Ryanair has today announced that a further 400,000 passengers will have their flights cancelled between November 2017 and March 2018. From April next year, the airline will permanently operate 10 fewer aircraft.

But because passengers are this time being given up to five weeks' notice of the cancellation, they will not receive any extra compensation under European Union passenger rules.

Ryanair is facing "enforcement action" for failing to give customers accurate information about their rights following hundreds of flight cancellations.

The gesture means Ryanair's original €25m (£22.2m) cost estimate for the pilot rota blunder has doubled to €50m.

As a result, 34 routes are suspended for the winter season from November to March 2018.

Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary apologized to passengers and stated that "slower growth" will allow the company to grant necessary vacation time to its employees.

Ryanair has just announced that it is cancelling more flights in the coming weeks.

The airline said less than 1% of the 50 million passengers it will carry this winter are affected and every one of these customers has received an email today giving them between 5 weeks to 5 months notice of these schedule changes, offering them alternative flights or full refunds of their airfare.

"Slower growth creates a large surplus of standby pilots so we can allocate all annual leave due in the 3 months to December, and more again in Q1 of 2018".

Ryanair customers can find out which flights are affected and about compensation or re-scheduling arrangements on the company's website.

The carrier said almost 400,000 customers are booked on these flights, though they affect one flight per day across 200 airports over the five-month period.

The airline cut its expected passenger volumes to 129 million from 131 million and to 138 million from 142 million in the following 12 months to March 2019.

The airline have claimed that this move will prevent any further cancellations in future.

Ryanair cautioned that it expects to see a softening in yields or fares over the next two months as it offers a range of seat sales to win back unhappy passengers.

Ryanair said: "We have notified the Alitalia bankruptcy Commissioners that we will not be pursuing our interest in Alitalia or submitting any further offers for the airline".
