Yesterday saw over 50,000 passengers stuck at terminal buildings. 

Chaotic scenes at Dublin airport which led to long queues were a 'blip' according to the DAA.

It's been confirmed that around 1,000 people missed their flights as a result of the delays.

Passengers were stranded in queues outside and inside both terminal buildings.

Junior Transport Minister Hildegarde Naughton is meeting the DAA Chief Executive this morning.

The DAA says people arriving too early for their flights is being partly blamed.

They say ahead of short-haul flights people should present 2 and a half hours before their takeoff.

Long-haul passengers are time enough arriving 3 and a half hours before.

The DAA says they don't expect the same issues on the forthcoming bank holiday weekend.
