"Is this how you make money? Fool people into booking flights that you have cancelled? Disgusting."
Passenger Tony Leen said: "Received notification from @Ryanair that flight from Faro to Cork on July 29 cancelled already. Weren’t they hoping to reopen summer routes from July 1?"
Another person added: "@Ryanair, you have cancelled my flight to Malaga for July 9 but on your website you can book to go out the same day, please explain."

Which?'s Rory Boland previously warned Brits to avoid being too hasty in booking flights.
He said: "It’s a huge risk, even if you are willing to quarantine at the end of your summer holiday.
