Curious about reliability of Ryanair

How good are Ryanair regarding cancelling flights, we are hoping to fly to Portugal in August this year, and because of our young family need the certainty.

You'll never get 100% certainty with a specific flight on any airline but Ryanair operate hundreds of flights daily and cancellations are the exception.

They are pretty punctual though you should pray they are late just so they don't play that bloody stupid, annoying fanfare when they are early/on time

I find that Ryanair operates with military precision. You should always have a back up plan though. It never hurts!

Ryanair cancellation rate is very low. However, in the very unlikely event that your flight is cancelled, you will be (to all intents and purposes) abandoned.

Completely agree with the last post, Ryanair are rarely late and rarely make cancellations, but if something does go wrong don't expect any help.

I know your entitled to help in that situation but you won't get any. They will get you on another flight when they can and until then your on your own.

Cancellation shouldn't be a problem but if you're travelling with kids you'll need a lot of baggage so be careful of the extra charges.
