Bunch of c...s.
Mr O'leary has just informed me by Email that the flights I booked to Lisbon at the end of next month have been cancelled due, ironically, to his staff needing their holidays.
He has offered me the chance to re-book on another flight, unfortunately he has cancelled them too. I could try to find another flight that fitted our accommodation dates but there aren't any, and as usual when help is required from another business, the other pariahs in the trade have trebled the costs of their flights.
This should be in Vent I suppose :x :evil:

Doesn't risk assessment enter your mind before you choose a plane operator.

There's a reason they could offer cheaper flights. The Uber of the skies.

I have to agree with this. Ryanair has a lousy reputation for cancelling flights.

As there's been more than 2 weeks notice, your chance of compensation is minimal but if you can be bothered download this form and either sent it recorded post to Ryanair itself or via email to passengercomplaints@caa.co.uk

I flew with them four or five times in the 2000's and decided not to do it again, hated the arrogant twat O'Leary and no knee / leg room in seating and it was a scramble to run across the tarmac to be first on the plane, as it was then no reserved seating. Ryanair needs him ( O'Leary) to resign and sell the airline on to a fresh face who could possibly save them. It is not an issue of pilot rostering errors, they have lost so many pilots who have joined other airlines, that they are now so short of pilots, that the ones remaining cannot take their holidays as there are no back up pilots left. He will not admit that issue. Sort it or get out and sell on. Rozza, let me know your dates and Uncle Gladdie will help you out searching airlines etc.

Tosh. They are paying the bare minimum that they can get away with. Further the EU regulations for compensation are in place, but not as yet informed.

The cost was not an issue for us, the availability of flights that suited me and Mrs R, despite having to fly from Manchester AND flights from Stanstead that my daughter could use that coincided with ours was the key issue.
The daftness is that my daughters outward flight has been cancelled and her homeward one has not. Plus we have accommodation booked to suit those dates with no obligation upon them to return our money.
Money is not the Be all and End all of booking flights there are multiple issues behind the need for them.

In the long term in society as with industry we pay a higher price for deregulation.

Ryanair was never a fan of Unionisation as they raced to the bottom of the pay scales.

Now with the pilot in the box seat they can get the same work elsewhere for far more rewards.

Keep away from British airways as well they have compete pricks running the show.

Parking fee £30, already paid. Tried to get a refund from Ryanair who informs us to contact their parking "Partners" for a refund from them. Have a guess what the partners said?, yep, contact Ryanair.
After an hour of fuckin about the 'Partner' finally refunded the amount minus a £7 "Admin Fee", :evil: :twisted: .
£7 multiplied by tens of thousands, the robbing bastards.

Its quite apparent that Ryanair are trying it on and not observing all their legal obligations.

Trying to blagg passengers they have let down to accept less than they are entitled too.

Know your rights. Get clued up.

The use of "Gallows Humour" can be therapeutic at times.

Indeed so, you could not make up what has gone on with those two airlines in the last week or so..unbelievable. Hope that you can find a third airline to get your flights.

I see the boss now wants to say a fake sorry to everyone while offering his pilots better terms of employment and high salaries.
I hope they do one to other airlines myself, the blokes a twat.

Thanks. Brought back on a Canadian Jumbo, all good. The airport in Spain awash with UK officials quietly getting it sorted. Dunkirk spirit still alive.
