Ryanair disruptions - looking forward to a bunch of interesting court cases!

Dear readers, 
we certainly hope none of you have recently been involved - or will be affected in the coming weeks - by Ryanair's decision to cancel hundreds of flights in order to cope with their apparent failure to schedule pilot holidays in a way that would allow them to comply with their contracts with several thousands customers. 

We are not aware of any similar cases since the adoption of Regulation 261/04, so it is likely that this situation will engender court cases to clarify what obligations the airline has towards the many consumers whose plans have been disrupted or anyhow affected by the company's answer to its planning mistakes. 

For a mostly accurate overview of your rights in case your flight has been cancelled by the Irish company, take a look at the Guardian's summary
