If you're flying with Ryanair from Stansted today you'll want to double check your flight status.

Tens of thousands of passengers are facing disruption across Europe as some of the airline's pilots and cabin crew go on strike.
 
250 flights have been cancelled - including 11 departures from Stansted.
 
Ryanair says all affected customers have received emails or text messages to tell them.
 
Chief operations officer Peter Bellew said the action was "deeply regrettable".
 
"It is deeply disappointing that some of our customers and our people in Germany tomorrow will have their flights disrupted by an unnecessary strike called at short notice," he said.
 
The strikes are the latest in a series of walkouts by staff at Europe's largest low-cost airline.
 
On September 12th dozens of flights were cancelled in Germany after pilots and flight attendants refused to work for 24 hours.
 
In August, several days of strikes involving staff in Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands saw hundreds of flights cancelled.
 
Earlier this month Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary said strikes by pilots were necessary to keep air fares down.
 
He insisted industrial disputes with the airline's staff have caused "minimal disruption" as he pledged not to "roll over".
