Ryanair Today Announced They're Cancelling Even MORE Flights

Ryanair really don't do things by halves do they. In an announcement today Michael O'Leary, fast reverting to his favoured role of 'pantomime villain of the budget holiday world' announced that an additional 18,000 flights are set to be cancelled between November and March 2018.

This is set to affect 400,000 passengers and what's more they are suspending 34 route, including several important London connections to Belfast, Edinburgh and Glasgow. In what is perhaps a wondrously flagrant attempt at positive spin, Michael O'Leary announced the cancellations by referring to them as  the 'sensible schedule changes announced today'.

With Ryanair still reeling from the PR disaster of having to cancel some 50 flights a day over a six week period from the middle of September until October this is sure to further sour their already fraught relationship with customers.

The reasons for the cancellations are essentially the same; an error in scheduling pilot holidays. However Michael O'Leary has said that this spate of cancellations will be the last and that Ryanair will be operating its full Spring and Summer schedule after March.

Here are the full list of suspended routes:
