RYANAIR is hoping to win back passengers with a huge flash sale.

The airline – which has angered millions after cancelling tens of thousands of flights in the last two weeks – is hoping the super-cheap fares will win back customers.

Ryanair has announced plans to roll out a series of seat sales over the coming weeks, in an effort to improve its public image.

They’ve already launched one for this weekend – a 1 million seat sale for travel in October, November and December, with fares as low as £4.99 to Grenoble and Lorient in France.

But will the low fares be enough to convince angry passengers to fly with Ryanair again?

The airline’s Chief Exec Michael O’Leary seems to think so.

At last week’s press conference when asked about whether the chaos would affect future bookings, he said: “Our booking engine is full of passengers who have sworn they will never fly with us again.”

Many customers have called for a boycott of the budget airline after its boss “cancelled Christmas” with the

fresh wave of flight cancellations.

The sorry situation has prompted passengers to set up the movement #boycottRyanair, encouraging others to avoid the airline.

One Twitter user called Jeff said: “You’ll never get another penny from me, even if you sell flights for a penny. Absolute disgrace. #BoycottRyanAir.”

Another Tweeter called Pauline Lawless‏ said: “#BoycottRyanair Please everyone let that idiot see how we feel. Boycott Ryanair till he’s gone.”

Others are mainly concerned about whether they can trust the airline to honour its bookings following the recent cancellations.

Sun Online has been contacted by several concerned Brits who are worried about booking flights with the airline in the next few months.

But they ARE already looking, which means they probably will buy the tickets.

Ryanair have been accused of behaving outrageously and treating passengers with complete contempt in the last two weeks.

People have shared stories of how their holidays have been ruined and many have complained that their Christmas plans are in tatters.

But as Michael O’Leary knows – people cannot resist a bargain.

These days Brits have become accustomed to a jet set lifestyle, thanks to rock-bottom fares that are driven mainly by Ryanair in the UK.

Travelling to Germany for the Christmas markets or Tenerife for a weekend of winter sun would have seemed completely unaffordable ten years ago – now it costs three times as much to get from London to Newcastle by train.

While some people will put their money where their mouth is, others are likely to find a £4.99 fare to the south of France impossible to resist.
