Ryanair cancels flights after 'messing up' pilot holidays

Ryanair cancelled 82 cancelled flights on Sunday after admitting it had "Messed up" the planning of its pilots' holidays. The budget airline said on Saturday that it will cancel 40-50 flights every day for the next six weeks. The cancellations could affect up to 285,000 passengers, who will be offered alternative flights or refunds. Ryanair has said that less than 2% of its flights would be cancelled and the move would help it hit its annual punctuality target of 90%. But passengers have complained about the resulting uncertainty. Passengers who reach their destination more than three hours late can be compensated from 200 to 600 euros, depending on the length of flights and delay.
