The number of disruptive incidents on flights has doubled, with Ryanair worst affected
Which? is warning airlines that they are breaking consumer law by imposing rip-off 'no-show' clauses - which they use to penalise passengers when they miss the first leg of their journey.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has written to the major airlines today reminding them they have to pay to get passengers home on a rival airline, if they cancel their own flights. EU law says that passengers with cancelled flights are entitled to: “re-routing under comparable transport conditions, to their final destination at the earliest opportunity”
In the US, by law, all airlines have to either allow passengers to hold their flight for 24 hours before paying, or cancel if they've already paid. This isn't always the case in the UK.
Ryanair's attempt to fix the problems with its website appears not to have worked. Both last night and this afternoon it has been replaced by a picture of famous landmarks and the message 'our site is down for maintenance'.
Parts of the Middle East and North Africa are safer by a range of measures than some more popular holiday destinations. Jordan has a lower risk of crime than France, Italy, the US and Thailand. Morocco has less crime and a lower risk of terrorism than most of Europe and the US. Neither country has high risk of natural disaster or significant health risks.
Online bookings and check-in with Ryanair will close for 12 hours from 5pm GMT on Wednesday. The airline has said that it needs to shut down its website and mobile phone app for a computer systems upgrade.
