End of summer holiday makers face major disruption as Ryanair cancels 110 flights.

The cancellations are due to a mass strike by French air traffic controllers.

Anyone intending to fly today is urged to check with their airline's website before going to the airport.

'All of our affected customers have been contacted and informed of their options and we advise all customers travelling on Tuesday to check the status of their flight on the Ryanair.com website before leaving for their airport' said Ryanair's Kenny Jacobs.

'President Macron’s Government has announced a major transformation of French labour laws – but it appears nothing changes when it comes to ATC disruption and unions holding Europe to ransom.' 

'2016 was a record year for ATC strikes and French Air Traffic Control unions have announced further strike action this week.'



Two Aer Lingus employees have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in a €18 million human smuggling ring.

The operation was uncovered after the Special Detective Unit the Garda National Immigration Bureau discovered that Aer Lingus employees were smuggling immigrants into the country through Dublin airport, according to the Independent.  

Ryanair have taken the opportunity to take a shot at the rival airline, posting a series of tweets that most Twitter users found to be in poor taste. 

Making light of the controversy, the first tweet says that their seats are "cheaper (and more comfortable) than Aer Lingus' catering truck."

This comes after sources told the Independent that each person wishing to be smuggled into Dublin can pay anything between €10,000 and €30,000 to be helped enter the country illegally. 

Another tweet shows a mock-up of an Aer Lingus catering trolley with human hands and feet sticking out.

The captions reads "Smart Immigrants flies Aer Lingus."  

The tweets have caused outrage online, with people claiming that Ryanair have gone too far with their notoriously tongue-in-cheek communications.Some have even branded the tweets "racist."

Labour leader Brendan Howlin also weighed in on the controversy, tweeting: “Unbelievably cheap shot from Ryanair. Low standards, made simple.”

A Ryanair spokesperson said: "While everyone loves our low fares, our social media posts may not cater to all tastes."

The two Aer Lingus employees, along with the man being smuggled, will appear in court today.
