Ryanair to cut flights after 737 Max delays

Ryanair has said it will be forced to cut the number of summer flights it operates next year as it predicted further delays before the Boeing 737 Max is allowed to fly again. Ryanair is awaiting the delivery of 58 planes, but it only expects to receive just over half of those before summer. The airline said it was in talks with airports about which of its loss-making and underperforming bases could suffer cuts or closures. Ryanair added that it would also talk to its people and unions about the planned closures, which it said were "Directly caused" by the delays delivering the 737 Max. The airline is now expecting to carry 157 million passengers in the year to March 2021, five million fewer than it had been planning for.
