RE: France - Cancellations 28/03/06

Probably because Ryanair is totally dependant on local ground transportation to get the passengers from the middle of nowhere to the airport (or city) that they thought they were flying to.

While this answer takes a sarcastic tone, I am pretty sure that this is the actual reason.
