"We will cancel 40 to 50 flights daily for the next six weeks, less than two per cent of our schedule, with a slightly higher number initially, as we begin to implement these cancellations", explained Ryanair spokesman Kenny Jacobs.

Des Manning told KCLR Live they've been busy fielding calls about it and thankfully haven't had any of their customers affected yet.

Customers can check online for a list of canceled flights through September 20. Every passenger who is entitled to compensation will receive it in full, he added.

The budget airline has reacted by cancelling 2% of its timetable to help both the airline's performance and give staff a chance to take their holiday days.

The carrier's current annual leave year runs from April to March, but it is now transitioning to a January to December schedule from 2018.

"Thanks so much @Ryanair for cancelling our flight tomorrow morning".

And a mother said her daughter's 21st birthday in Amsterdam had been ruined because her flight had been cancelled last minute - with hotels and tickets to museums unrefundable.

Barring exceptional circumstances, airlines must under European Union rules provide at least two weeks' notice to avoid paying compensation of €250 per passenger for flights of 1,500 km or less or €400 for longer flights within the bloc.

You can check whether your flight is on the list of cancelled services here.

On Monday, the low-priced carrier said over 98% of its customers will be unaffected by the "less than 50 per day" flight cancellations between Thursday and October 31.

If you are stuck in your holiday or business destination, the airline is required to pay for your accommodation and reasonable food and communication expenses while you wait for the next available flight.

If you are affected you should have received an email, otherwise your flight should remain unchanged.

THE majority of standard travel insurance policies won't cover you for flight cancellations and other costs.

Ryanair employed 4,058 pilots at the end of March, according to its annual report, up from 3,424 a year earlier to keep up with a rapid growth in passenger numbers.

The short notice given has riled many passengers though, with aviation minister Lord Callanan saying: "We expect all airlines to fulfil their obligations to their customers and do everything possible to notify them well in advance of any disruption to their journey".
