Frankfurt Court Rules Ryanair cannot cancel some tickets

The Frankfurt court - without ruling on the legality of screen scraping - has ruled that the Irish based airline cannot cancel flights booked via a third party website www.cheaptickets.de.

For the protection of the passengers this is a good thing. For the rule of law - the jury will still be out.

BTW if Ryanair does cancel any of these bookings - then it is subject to a fine of 250K Euros and up to 6 months prison for contempt. Remember that is not for the cause, but for disobeying the court. So far its 15 all.

Thanks to Professor Alex for this.
