Ryanair apologises after hundreds of compensation cheques bounce


Ryanair has apologised after it sent unsigned cheques to around 200 passengers who were owed compensation for disrupted travel.

Ryanair said that it sent out 20,000 cheques to pay compensation in July and of those less than 190 had been posted without being signed in an administrative error, meaning that when customers tried to cash them, they failed.

“These cheques were re-issued last week and we apologise sincerely for this inconvenience,” a Ryanair spokesman said in an emailed statement.

Thousands of Ryanair passengers have had their flights cancelled this summer due to air traffic control problems and pilot strikes.
