"Or the sensible thing; take out 50 flights a day for six weeks during this crewing issue and create standby pilots and aircraft to bring punctuality back up to 90 per cent".

We had already received the information on the cancelled flights up to Wednesday 20 September, and these new details run from Monday 25 September to Saturday 28 October.

If the current pattern continues then an average of three flights a day to and from Scottish airports could be affected.

What these rights are depends on what type of flight your taking.

While Ryanair's scrapped flights account for only about 2 percent of its usual 2,500 daily services, the cause was avoidable and stems from the company's aggressive strategy. Be sure to document what you spend, though and keep receipts.

Make sure you have all your details to hand, including your flight number and banks details you booked the flight with.

In addition, passengers can also claim compensation.

Under EU rules, if your flight departed from an EU airport or is an EU airline landing at an EU airport, and your flight was cancelled within 14 days of departure, you may also be eligible to claim additional compensation of between 125 and 600 euros.

Richard Taylor of the Civil Aviation Authority told the Sun Online: "The welfare of passengers must be a priority for any airline experiencing disruption".

THE majority of standard travel insurance policies won't cover you for flight cancellations and other costs.

He went on: "We have to check if all this is respected by Ryanair".

Barring exceptional circumstances, airlines must under European Union rules provide at least two weeks' notice to avoid paying compensation of €250 per passenger for flights of 1,500 km or less or €400 for longer flights within the bloc.
