Now Ryanair now hopes 20 of the aircraft, which it says will be a "game-changer" in terms of capacity and fuel efficiency, to be delivered in March or April 2020 but chief executive Michael O'Leary admitted there could be none delivered.

US carriers do not expect to fly the MAX until 2020, according to their schedules, as they wait for regulators to end a worldwide grounding that followed two deadly crashes.

"If there are training requirements (and) co-ordination to be done with the European Union member states to make sure everyone does the same thing at the same time, this will take a bit of time", Ky said.

In Europe, it may take until the first quarter of 2020.

It is one of Boeing's biggest customers for the grounded plane with 210 on order.

After 2 crashes which killed 346 individuals on Capitol Hill in Washington, October 29, 2019, the manufacturing unit of Boeing's 737 Max has been grounded quickly after the incident.

Aiming to win back public confidence in the Boeing 737 MAX, major USA carriers want to hold the additional checks as soon as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Boeing clear the 737 MAX to resume operations after months of worldwide groundings.

EASA is doing simulator tests in November.

"There has been a lot of work done on the design of the software." . Mr O'Leary added: "We may have to cut that again but, frankly, there is no point in keeping on changing the number until we get more certainty".

Boeing spokesman Gordon Johndroe said yesterday the company "will continue to cooperate with the committee".

When Ky was asked if EASA would require that 737 MAX pilots undergo further simulator training, he would not elaborate on it knowing that should that be EASA's decision it would delay the MAX return and put a further financial burden on the airlines.

"The 28,000 flight attendants working for American Airlines refuse to walk onto a plane that may not be safe and are calling for the highest possible safety standards to avoid another tragedy", Bassani wrote, noting that Muilenburg's testimony made clear "there were serious breakdowns in the supervision of the 737 MAX".

The airline employs more than 9,000 cabin crew and has a further 1,130 ground operations and maintenance staff, with the remainder in administrative, IT and management roles.
