Ryanair faces legal action for suspending 34 routes, cancelling 400,000 flights and “persistently misleading” passengers due to shortage of pilots.
Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has been in discussion with the legal office to take legal action against Ryanair..”The CAA’s chief executive, Andrew Haines, has written to the airline’s legal chief, Juliusz Komorek, outlining breaches of the rules on passengers’ rights and threatening legal action under the Enterprise Act 2002.”.. ‘independent’ news reported.
According to EU regulation, “When an EU airline cancels a flight with more than two weeks’ notice, it need not pay compensation. But it must offer a flight on another airline if that is the best option for the passenger, and bear the cost of transfers to or from alternative airports.”..
Ryanair offered travel vouchers for £40 one-way or £80 return that can be used to book a Ryanair flight for travel between October and March 2018, but the fresh cancellations came after the offer affecting more than 315,000 passengers.
