REUS – Angry passengers with Irish no-frills airline Ryanair bombarded the company with complaints Wednesday after flights were temporarily suspended between Reus in Catalonia and Stansted airport outside of London.
Ryanair staff said the six-day suspension beginning Wednesday was necessary to rearrange the airline’s schedule.
It has only affected morning flights, said a spokesman.
Passengers affected by the move will be able to use their tickets on Ryanair’s night flight or others linking northeastern Spain and London, they added.
But furious passengers told reporters that no one had bothered to inform them of the cancellation of Wednesday morning’s flight until they arrived ready to travel at the Reus airport.
“I can’t take the night flight because my workday ends very late,” said David Subirats who commutes every week to London.
“And I can’t catch the Ryanair flight from Girona because I have no way to get there.”
