Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary apologises over pilot rota blunder



Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary has apologised for the inconvenience caused by a pilot rota blunder which has left hundreds of thousands of passengers unsure whether their flights will take off.
 
The budget airline conceded it had "messed up" the planning of pilot holidays and also blamed the cancellations on a backlog of crew leave, air traffic control strikes and weather disruptions.


It estimated a bill of €25m (£22.1m) from compensation and lost fares.


The no-frills carrier plans to cancel up to 50 flights a day over the next six weeks. There are lists of cancellations on its website.
