Ryanair scheduling update

Ryanair cancels flights after 'messing up' pilot holidays - BBC News
Marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said affected customers with bookings up to 20 September had been informed."We have messed up in the planning of pilot holidays and we're working hard to fix that," he said.Most of the cancellations are due to a backlog of staff leave which has seen large numbers of the airline's staff book holidays towards the end of the year.The airline is changing its holiday year, which currently runs from April to March, to run from January to December instead.Rynanair said the shift meant it had to allocate annual leave to pilots in September and October.
Interesting to see that earlier PPRuNe posts explained 'that ;-)' before the airline got this message out. My compliments to the PPRuNe posters!
