Ryanair boss O'Leary: 'This is our mess up'

Ryanair customers whose flights are being cancelled will receive an email by Monday evening informing them, chief executive Michael O'Leary has said.

The budget airline plans to cancel 40-50 flights every day for the next six weeks, after it admitted it had "messed up" the planning of pilot holidays.

Mr O'Leary said most people would still be able to fly on the same day.
