Customers affected by the cancellations will be emailed with offers of alternative flights on the same or next day, or full refunds if they choose not to take an alternative flight, plus details of their EU261 compensation entitlement, the airline said.
Mr O'Leary said: "We're working very hard at the moment to make sure we finalise the list of flight cancellations, which will affect less than 2% of our customers, and also look after those customers who are disrupted".
The airline has outlined the affected flights, but only up until this Wednesday.
Cancelled flight details for Thurs 21 September to Sunday 24 September are still to be disclosed. The same goes for two other flights, on Wednesday, to and from Barcelona.
Why has Ryanair cancelled so many flights?
A problem with pilot rosters is being blamed for the cancellation of up to 60 flights a day over the next six weeks.
However, many travellers have now demanded that Ryanair release a list of all of the flights that will be cancelled over the next six weeks, with some complaining they have been left "in limbo".

She said the word "deplorable" was floating around in her head because 'Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner'. Clinton will also be appearing on " The Late Show with Stephen Colbert " and " The Daily Show with Trevor Noah ".
Ryanair states that "customers will be contacted directly about this small number of cancellations and offered alternative flights or full refunds".

You also can't claim for the same thing twice from the airline and your insurer.

Changes imposed by Irish regulators, in line with European law, forces Ryanair to conform staff holidays with the calendar year from January, requiring it to allocate that leave before the end of the year.
Ryanair has been running its system at the limit, with 97 percent of seats occupied in August, when the carrier flew 12.7 million passengers.
Analysts at Dublin-based Goodbody Stockbrokers estimated the cancellations would cost the airline about €34.5 million, comprising €23.5 million in compensation, €6.3 million in lost fees, and €4.7 million in subsistence such as meals, drinks and accommodation.
