Ryanair appears to be adopting a non-combative stance after the UK Civil Aviation Authority threatened legal action to ensure compliance with passenger rights legislation.

The CAA has invited Ryanair representatives to a meeting to discuss the airline's handling of passengers in the wake of mass flight cancellations, after the regulator expressed doubts that Ryanair was explicitly offering to reroute customers on other carriers.

Ryanair simply states that it "will be meeting" with the CAA and adds: "[We] will comply fully with whatever requirements they ask us to."

The budget airline has been forced to cancel thousands of flights as it attempts to bring its schedule under control, and the CAA is concerned that passengers are not being given all the information they are due.

Several carriers – among them Emirates, American Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Etihad Airways and Singapore Airlines – have previously faced similar enforcement action by the CAA for denying compensation to passengers.
