Personal finance expert Martin Lewis explains what rights customers have during the Ryanair pilot shortage.

Martin told 5 live Daily’s Adrian Chiles: “In a way you’re better to be notified with 13 days to go [before your flight] than with 15 days to go.”

Around 300,000 Ryanair passengers are expected to have their flights cancelled in the next six weeks.

God awful airline.
looks like to me by forcing pilots to take holidays means that the financial liability is eliminated off the balance sheet and hence the profits are maximised ensuring those who are paid huge bonuses on profit target get even larger bonuses.
Does Ryanair have a pilot shortage? - BBC News

tl;dr Yes.

"Is Ryanair short of pilots? It's a critical question.

It could help explain why 400,000 Ryanair passengers are having flights cancelled over the next few weeks.

But it's hard to give a straight answer.

The company's boss, Michael O'Leary, is adamant that they don't have a pilot shortage. He says the cancellations are down to a cock-up with the holiday rotas, combined with bad weather and air traffic control delays and strikes.

But I got a completely different message from several former and current Ryanair pilots, who are equally as strident that a lack of pilots is also to blame.

Some of these people told me that they are risking their jobs by talking to the media.

At least two used the word "droves" to describe the numbers leaving right now. There is a buoyant market for pilots, as airlines such as Norwegian and Jet2 are expanding. We know 140 Ryanair pilots have gone to Norwegian this year. Jet2 wouldn't give us a number."
