Despite being hounded on Twitter, it doesn't look like Ryanair is planning to release a forward list of cancelled flights, so if you're concerned you might be affected it might just be a case of playing the waiting game, unfortunately.
Ryanair has said it messed up and apologised to passengers.
"Ryanair's on-time performance has declined from 90% to under 80% over the past two weeks, a figure that is unacceptable to Ryanair and its customers".
In Rome, Alex Currie (26) arrived at check-in with his grandmother Mary McEvoy (69) to find their flight had been cancelled.
'Cancellation notices for flights cancelled up to and including Wednesday 20 September have been sent to affected customers and we will continue to send regular updates and post flight information on our website.
Ryanair is mandated under the Irish Aviation Authority to bring staff holidays in line with the calendar year from January 1, requiring it to allocate the leave before the end of the year. Never book with you again" and "This isn't good enough.
The airline said that less than 2 per cent of its flights would be cancelled.
It claims less than two per cent of flights will be cancelled, but passengers have expressed their fury over late cancellations.
The Irish Travel Agents Association (ITAA) has expressed "strong concern" over the cancellation of flights, saying they will cause "severe problems for thousands of travellers travelling to and from Ireland".
The company said last night: 'We apologise sincerely to the small number of customers affected, and will be doing our utmost to arrange alternative flights and/or full refunds'.
"Alternatively you must be offered a full refund".
Flights are working as common for clients who haven't gotten messaged correspondence from the bearer, Europe's greatest markdown carrier said in a refresh Saturday. Its a bloody disgrace.
If a flight is cancelled, passengers either apply for a refund or change their cancelled flight for free.
"They are quite distraught and upset as they have already been away for almost a week and I think the fact they didn't even get a phone call to explain why has just made them equally angry and upset".
Cancellations are unlikely to affect Cardiff Airport where Ryanair fly to Faro & Tenerife, however, Ryanair base Bristol Airport though has already seen today's Castellon flight cancelled.
