Ryanair Holdings Plc Chief Executive Officer Michael O’Leary harangued Boeing Co. over the grounding of the 737 Max jet, saying he’s concerned the Irish carrier will receive zero planes by summer 2020.

Ryanair, Boeing’s biggest European customer for the Max, has already slashed its estimate for the number of aircraft likely to be available for next year’s peak season. O’Leary warned Monday that even the revised figure is at risk if the manufacturer fails to get its act together soon.
