|Underexposed? Aer Lingus sunshine flights end early this year |
due to lack of demand ...
However, many hundreds of customers (some almost a year ago) have already made bookings beyond the August cut of point and feel they have been left high and dry.
The Aer Lingus routes affected are Belfast / Majorca and Belfast / Alicante, Spain.
The airline said it had reallocated its planes to "routes with greater demand".
It said it would offer a "full refund or alternative flights" to customers who were booked to fly in September.
"We apologise sincerely for the inconvenience caused," said an Aer Lingus statement.
However, a number of people who contacted BBC Newsline's Facebook page expressed anger at how they had been treated.
One woman commented: "Our family of five has been cancelled via email yesterday.
"We were travelling 29 August to Alicante and home on 5 September so return journey cancelled.
"This is a total nightmare for us, particularly as we're travelling with two infants and have been saving for months. They offered to fly us home to Dublin but it arrives at 130am (completely unsuitable with babies) and there are no buses to get us home to Belfast."
