Ryanair CEO Urges Boeing to Improve Aircraft Delivery Following Reduced Forecast

Michael O'Leary, the CEO of Ryanair, has urged Boeing to "pull up its socks" after the aircraft manufacturer announced a reduction in its expected aircraft deliveries for the year. In its third-quarter financial results released on October 25, 2023, Boeing revised its delivery forecast for 737 aircraft from 400-450 to 375-400. O'Leary expressed his frustration with The Telegraph, stating that it's high time for Boeing to start delivering these aircraft punctually. He recalled that the Max was grounded for two years, but that was two years ago.


In September 2023, Ryanair attributed cuts to its autumn and winter schedule to Boeing's delayed delivery of the 737 MAX aircraft. The airline announced a reduction in operations due to Boeing's failure to deliver 27 expected aircraft between September and December 2023. In response to these delays, Ryanair anticipated receiving only 14 aircraft between October and December 2023. O'Leary stated in September 2023 that their primary goal is to ensure the delivery of all 57 contracted B737 aircraft before the end of May 2024. They are in regular discussions with Boeing regarding this matter.


On May 9, 2023, Ryanair confirmed an order for 150 new Boeing 737 MAX 10 aircraft for delivery between 2027 and 2033, with options for an additional 150. According to ch-aviation.com, the carrier is currently awaiting the delivery of 84 737 MAX 8200s.

O'Leary expressed in his latest statement with The Telegraph that they are working with Boeing to expedite these deliveries. However, he emphasized that their main concern is receiving the 57 aircraft by the end of April. They hope to receive them by June, but if the delivery slips into July or August, it will be too late and they won't accept them.
