During an interview with German magazine Wirtschaftswoche, Ryanair’s chief executive Michael O’Leary disclosed, the Irish budget airliner is prepared for further delays in the delivery of Boeing 737 MAX.
He also mentioned that, compensation will be discussed only after the aircraft have been delivered.
Boeing’s 737 MAX has been grounded since March 2019 following two deadly crashes which resulted in the death of 346 people.
Ryanair has ordered 135 737 MAX jets.
“We were meant to have 58 planes by the summer,” said O’Leary. “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.”
