The Irish airline already cancelled more than 160 flights over the weekend with Stansted, its leading base, affected the most.
On Monday alone, 22 Boeing 737 flights to and from the Essex airport have been cancelled, including links to Barcelona, Budapest, Oslo and Prague. Six domestic flights to and from Stansted have been cancelled of which four were serving Edinburgh and two serving Glasgow.
Other UK airports are less badly affected. Manchester has cancellations to Dublin, Hamburg and Krakow, with the corresponding return flights also grounded.
On Tuesday, the number of Stansted cancellations falls to 18, but casualties include some relatively long flights: to and from Riga in Latvia, plus services to Rome and Bari. Faro in southern Portugal loses its links with Luton and Manchester.
Kenny Jacobs, marketing director of Ryanair said that the cancellation notices for flights cancelled up to and including Wednesday 20 September have been sent to affected customers and posted on the official website.
The passengers took it to the social media for venting out how difficult things became for them with what it calls messing up “in the planning of pilot holidays”.
