Boeing 737-8 and 737-9 are an alternative nomenclature for the 737 MAX 8 and 737 MAX 9 and had already been used in documentation from the United States regulator.

"Ryanair remains committed to the B737 MAX aircraft, and now expects that it will return to flying service before the end of 2019, however the exact date of this return remains uncertain", O'Leary said.

The airline said the shortfall in aircraft deliveries will mean "some base cuts and closures" for the winter and next summer, and it has started talking to airports to identify which underperforming or lossmaking bases to shut from November.

Ryanair had planned its flight schedule based on the delivery of 58 of the 737 Max aircraft by summer 2020.

'This number could rise, or fall further, depending on when the B737 MAX actually returns to flight services'.

Boeing's global fleet of 737 MAX planes has been grounded since mid-March following the second of two catastrophic accidents in Indonesia and Ethiopia which killed 346 people.

The planemaker is working on a software fix that people close to the matter have said it hopes to present to regulators in September.

The Boeing Max has been grounded worldwide since shortly after that crash and it's not clear when it will be certified to fly again.

Ryanair on Tuesday slashed its growth outlook and said it would temporarily shut bases as crisis-hit Boeing pushes back plane delivery owing to fatal crashes that grounded its 737 MAX jets.

"Our immediate focus is the safe return of the MAX to service and re-earning the trust of airlines and the traveling public, " it said.

Asked whether he was confident about the timeline during a conference call with analysts, CEO Michael O'Leary said: "Honestly we don't know".

Boeing executives, FAA engineers and global aviation regulators have extended the safety analyses to cover a growing list of nearly all the issues from emergency recovery process to potentially suspect electronic components.

The group said it hopes to "restore our growth to normal levels in summer 2021".

"The regulatory authorities determine the process for certifying the MAX software and training updates and the timing for lifting the grounding order".

Carriers have been scrambling to adjust their operations.

On Sunday, American Airlines said it was extending for a fourth time cancellations of about 115 daily flights.

Independent air transport consultant John Strickland forecast that Ryanair would seek compensation from Boeing over the delays - and seek to clamp down on airport costs as well.

The images prompted a flurry of speculation about a potential name change and show a Ryanair plane in Seattle with the 737 MAX logo replaced with 737-8200.
