Stranded by Ryanair’
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.
