Request EU investigation regarding massive flights cancellation announced by Ryanair

As announced by the company Ryanair (see press release) about 40 to 50  flights are expected to be cancelled, daily, by the company over the next 6 weeks (end of October 2017). This represents about 2,000 flights, meaning 300,000 passengers to find a B-plan.

More widely, as Ryanair claims 2,500 flights per day, there are about 15,000,000  passengers under the threat of a short notice cancellation, because Ryanair in not able to provide, as of today, the accurate list of these 2,000 cancelled flights.

Despite Ryanair claims that this decision is driven by "punctuality which has fallen below 80% in the first two weeks of September", because "ATC capacity delays and strikes, weather disruptions", Ryanair also acknowledges this situation is caused by a poor capacity management, because "backlog of crew leave [that] must be allocated before 31st Dec 2017".

Therefore, it appears this situation is a significant violation of passenger's rights, as probability of cancellation is significantly increased and unilaterally decided by Ryanair, and does not allow, during this period, passengers to cancel without penalties their flights by their own, to switch to another carrier (e.g. cancel on 18 September a flight scheduled on 15 October, even if not formally announced cancelled yet)

Petitioners require immediate investigation from the EU Commission, through Customers Commissioner Věra Jourová and Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc, to put in light the real causes of this decision that makes uncertain the flight of millions of European citizens.
