‘What rights do airline passenger have?’

The cost of purchasing cheap tickets on low-cost airlines has proven costly for hundreds of thousands of passengers.

Ryanair, Europe’s biggest budget airline recently cancelled some 2000 flights. The company says the decision was because of a scheduling blunder among its pilots and cabin crew. Well, as you can imagine, that decision sparked immediate outrage from frustrated passengers. The CEO, Michael O’Leary, was forced to apologise – saying Ryanair ‘messed up’.

The flight cancellations are expected to last until the end of October. So, what can passengers do to protect their rights?
