Boeing delays plane deliveries, Ryanair plans to cut flights

Orders push company to reduce Summer program in the busiest period of the year

The low-cost airline Ryanair may be forced to cut some scheduled flight during the Summer 2024 season due to the shortage of aircraft supplied by the US Boeing Group. A hard blow for the airline, which could occur in the busiest period of the year.

"We don't really know how many planes we're going to get from Boeing. And now we're much less sure we'll get 45 to 50. We're pretty sure we'll get 30 to 40" by June 2024, said Ryanair CEO Michael O' Leary, in a press conference.

The low-cost company is the first in Europe to feel the interruptions due to an increasingly profound crisis of the American manufacturer, which the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has prohibited from increasing the production of the B-737 MAX. Ryanair was supposed to receive 57 MAX 8s by the end of April, but just over a week ago Boeing told the company that it would receive about 50 aircraft by the end of June.
