Ryanair published the full list of cancellations - that it said was now less than 50 flights per day - and said where possible, they had been allocated to its bigger base airports where it could offer disrupted customers the maximum number of alternative flights.

A dozen Ryanair flights have been cancelled between Monday and Wednesday to and from the Zaventem and Charleroi airports, the low-priced Irish airline announced on its website.

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

"Passengers whose flights are cancelled have a comprehensive set of rights", says an EC spokesman.

Ireland's Commission for Aviation Regulation is due to meet to discuss the ongoing situation and say it expects some passengers will be entitled to compensation.

"It must arrange alternative flights or provide a full refund for everyone affected".

The airline has blamed a backlog of staff leave for the disruption, which has led to large numbers of its staff taking holidays towards the end of the year.

Ryanair is mandated by the Irish Aviation Authority to bring staff time-off in line with the calendar year from January 1, requiring it to distribute the backlog before the end of 2017.

One Indian Soldier Killed in Firing By Pakistani Troops
Pakistan Rangers started unprovoked firing and shelling on Indian positions and civilian areas in Arnia sector around 1 am today. In the firing, Constable Bijender Bahadur hailing from Uttar Pradesh, who was deployed at a forward post was injured seriously.

If you have a trip coming up, and booked your flights with the budget airline, then that's unlikely to be the sort of pre-holiday news you need.

While the scrapped flights account for only about 2 percent of normal daily operations, the cause was avoidable.

Ryanair responded by releasing a list of cancelled flights until Thursday, September 21. Keep receipts of everything you spend.

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

According to European Union law, the company has an obligation to reroute you to your destination at "the earliest opportunity", however, exactly how long "earliest" means is yet to be tested, so you may not be able to get a flight with another airline and charge Ryanair for the fare.

You can apply directly on the Ryanair website for compensation (one claim per booking).

Some may also be able to claim compensation depending on several factors.

The PR disaster might cost Ryanair in the region of €30m.
