Maybe the title is kind of confusing, you're welcome to make edits if you find it appropriate...
Ryanair pilots have announced a strike for the 20th of December 2017. This day we fly with Ryanair from CRL (Charleroi) to SDR (Santander) for Christmas holidays. With different reservations, we fly on 28th of December from SDR to VLC (Valencia) and on 6th January from ALC (Alicante) back to CRL, both flights with Ryanair as well.
In case my first flight is cancelled, and there is no option for us to go to Spain, do I get a refund for the 2 other flights (different reservations)?
From the Ryanair FAQs:
How do I apply for a refund?
Refund – Passengers can get a full refund of the price paid for all unused flight sectors within 7 days. If the disrupted flight is also their outbound sector, customers will be offered a full refund of the return sector, together with, when relevant, a return flight to the first point of departure at the earliest opportunity (this is for passengers travelling on connecting flights).
It's not clear whether my 2 other reservations are considered as return flights.
I would like to know this in advance just to be prepared on what my rights are.
