Ryanair to release a full list of all their cancelled flights for the next six weeks
This will solve some of the confusion...
Ryanair will publish a list of their cancelled flights for the next six weeks, the company's CEO Michael O'Leary said on Monday.
Speaking on Sky News, O'Leary said that a full list was being prepared and would be released on Monday evening, as soon as it had been finalised.
Ten flights in and out of Dublin Airport were cancelled by the airline on Monday with another eight cancelled on Tuesday.

The reason given for this was so that their work calendar could successfully switch from April-March to January-December, as well as a backlog of crew leave which must be handed out before the end of the year.
In short, there's a change to the way Ireland records pilots hours to comply with EU rules.
It's expected that between 50-60 flights will be cancelled each day over the next six weeks as a result of these changes.
Darren McCaffrey of Sky News asked O'Leary on Monday whether or not people would receive compensation for their cancelled flights to which O'Leary replied, "Everyone who is entitled to compensation will receive compensation."
On Sunday, the Commission for Aviation Regulation said Ryanair will have to pay compensation to passengers whose flights have been cancelled with less than two weeks' notice.
Anyone seeking compensation has been advised to do it via the Ryanair website as some third party sites will take a percentage of the compensation as a fee.
