The commission has already said it expects Ryanair will have to pay out hefty sums in compensation.

Ryanair has informed all passengers whose flights have been cancelled up to and including Wednesday, but the regulations say if the notice given is less than two weeks then compensation must be paid.

Questions have been raised over whether Ryanair can advertise and sell tickets for flights, which it may later have to cancel.

The commission says the legislation does not prohibit Ryanair from doing this, however, the airline will be liable to pay refunds or provide alternative flights and pay compensation if there is not sufficient notice.
