    Less than 1% of customers affected, and those that are get a refund or reroute plus a free flight. It's annoying for those affected, but hardly chaos.

    It's not ideal but they're getting their act together. People are being given lots of notice and can apply for a refund or reroute online. You only need to call if you want to change to a new airport.

    So is life.

    Every time I see another story involving Ryanair, it makes me glad I don't require or need the use of their transportation.

    How much more time do they need?

    It's been generally well known for a long time that you need a pilot to fly a plane.

    Ryanair's been with us since the 90s and EU reg 261:2004 with us since 2005, they've simply had plenty of time and don't have a clue.

    Ask for re-routing if Ryanair cancel your flights.

    You can be re-routed on any airline, so search for the best alternative and then ask for that re-routing.

    Sky scanner, kayak and google flights may help, tick the box for 'add nearby airports' for a wider search, also look at the day before and after your travel date.

    Headline should be that MSE can't link to an article.

    Another MSE post which doesn't deserve the airtime.

    Getting their act together? They've just announced a further 18,000 cancellations and route axes.

    What about the people who have booked hotel's etc and don't get a refund on that.
    If you don't think this is chaos what then? Getting their act together (sic) they must have knew this was coming but continued to take bookings under false pretences

    And now they're being investigated by the CAA for misleading consumers as to their rights

    But hey, at least they've got their act together, eh.

    Totally agree.


    Why do the mse people feel they have to start threads when we're perfectly capable of starting our own.:mad:


    At least this one isn't the usual hypothetical dilemma.


    And then they advertise for Board Guides. If they've got time on their hands, do some monitoring or tidying up.
