FU­RI­OUS Ry a n a i r pas­sen­gers were stranded last night af­ter the firm an­nounced it was can­celling up to 50 flights a day.

As many as 285,000 peo­ple could be af­fected by the bud­get air­line’s move, which aims to clear a back­log of crew leave and meet punc­tu­al­ity tar­gets.

Those hit yes­ter­day in­cluded hen party rev­eller Kirstin Arms­den, who told the air­line on Twit­ter: “Ab­so­lutely dis­grace­ful that you’ve can­celled our flight with­out ex­pla­na­tion.”

Karen Naughton Brill said her daugh­ter’s 21st birth­day trip to Am­s­ter­dam was “ru­ined” when flights were called off at short no­tice. She wrote: “She’s gone to bed in tears.”

Another pas­sen­ger claimed to have been left “home­less” in Benidorm be­cause they were un­able to get a plane home.

Ryanair, headed by out­spo­ken boss Michael O’Leary, has apol­o­gised.
