Ryanair has announced it is cancelling 40 to 50 flights a day for the next six weeks.

The budget airline said it was cutting less than 2% of all departures to clear “a backlog of crew leave”.

It “apologised sincerely to the small number of customers affected” and promised to try and rearrange flights.

A statement claimed the move was to realign staff’s annual holiday window and improve punctuality.

Customers complained of their holiday plans going “up in smoke” at short notice after the news broke.

One traveller complained of being “homeless on (the) streets of Benidorm” and another said their group, including a pregnant lady, was “stranded in the middle of nowhere”.

A full list of cancelled flights for 16 September can be found here.
