The company said less than 2% of its flights would be cancelled - but passengers have responded with anger over the short notice.

While it now calculates crew leave from April to March, regulators are forcing it to calculate it from January to December from the start of next year, it said.

No Ryanair flights from Leeds Bradford appear to have been cancelled today, with departures to Venice, Dublin and Chania getting underway this morning.

On social media, passengers expressed frustration at a lack of response from Ryanair as to specific flight cancellations.

He explained: "We have operated a record schedule and traffic numbers during the peak summer months of July and August but must now allocate annual leave to pilots and cabin crew in September and October while still running the bulk of our summer schedule".

The low-priced carrier was prompted to take the drastic step after seeing less than 80 per cent of its planes arrive on time in the first two weeks of September.

'Flights are operating as scheduled unless an email confirming a cancellation has been received.

Through cancelling fewer than 2% of the flights during the upcoming six months, or until the winter schedule begins, we will succeed in improving the resilience of operations for scheduling and restore the annualized target goal of punctuality of 90%, said a Ryanair spokesperson.
