Ryanair is prepared for further delays to the delivery of its Boeing 737 Max airliners, its chief executive Michael O’Leary said in an interview. O’Leary said that he will be lucky to see any by October, as Ryanair has ordered 135 of the jets, but has none in service. 


He has previously announced Ryanair would not take orders in July or August because it is its busiest time of the year.

“We were meant to have 58 planes by the summer. That went down to 30, then 20, then 10 and the latest is maybe only five. It’s possible we’ll only get the first jets in October 2020”, O’Leary said.

Other airlines have already agreed a recompense with Boeing. However, O’Leary said that he would discuss recompense after the planes were delivered.
