Ryanair strike on Friday: 104 Belgian flights cancelled
Full details of Friday's Ryanair pilots' strike have been confirmed, with the cancellation of 104 Belgian flights.
At Charleroi, 82 flights will not take off or land - about 70% of those scheduled by the budget airline - affecting almost 14,000 passengers. At Brussels Airport, 22 flights are cancelled.
Affected passengers should have been contacted by email. The budget airline is offering a full refund or passengers can switch their flight to an alternative date.
Until now Ryanair has refused to pay compensation for flights cancelled due to strike, but consumer association Test-Achats has advised affected passengers to lodge a claim nonetheless and is considering a class-action lawsuit.
