Dublin Airport Authority has been asked to outline its new operational plan before the Oireachtas transport committee tomorrow.
The Dáil has heard what happened at Dublin Airport at the weekend was 'inexcusable'.
The DAA is to appear before the transport committee tomorrow afternoon to address issues raised by TDs and senators, as well as facing scrutiny for its new proposals.
Public Expenditure Minister Michael McGrath says what happened at the airport at the weekend can't be repeated.
Due to significant queues inside the terminal for check-in, bag drop & security, passengers queueing outside the terminal may not make their flight & may need to contact their airline to rebook. We sincerely apologise for the obvious frustration and inconvenience this may cause.

Ministers have asked to see a detailed operational plan to be available publicly for investigation and that there would be a detailed communications policy so as to ensure that this situation does not occur again.
Former transport minister, Shane Ross, says a strong response is needed.
He said heads should not roll straight away as this would be unfair to the DAA, but people should be made accountable at board and management level and actions should be taken.
