Ryanair flight cancellations (were you affected?)

Back in 2017 thousands were affected by Ryanair cancellations of flights.

Ryanair's Facebook page stated their official line, which was "we have messed up in the planning of pilot holidays and we're looking to fix that.

It wasn't best practice either, as their policy is to not book passengers onto rival airlines.

However, the legislation states: "You have the right to be rerouted to your final destination shown on your ticket at the earliest opportunity under comparable transport conditions or re-booking at a later date if that is more convenient for you."

The term 'earliest opportunity' has yet to be tested in the courts.

The difficulty for passengers comes where the flight concerned was a weekend away, where the original flight was on a Friday. However, if the replacement flight is on a Sunday, this is more than likely a breach of the EU rules.

If you were affected by the Ryanair flight cancellations and have not yet receive proper compensation, it's not too late to claim.

You have up to six years to make a claim for flight compensation where the cancellation was less than 14 days before the flight was due to depart.
