Ryanair, the world’s most hated airline, have said people will not be refunded if they refuse to fly on the Boeing 737 MAX “death planes”, according to reports.
Ryanair is banking on a March or April delivery date from Boeing – just in time for summer.
But holidaymakers getting away for a break will be unaware that they could be travelling on a Boeing 737 MAX.
Aerospace giant Boeing was forced to halt production on the planes after a series of safety setbacks following two horror crashes that killed 346 people.
Chief Executive of Ryanair, Michael O’Leary, told the Independent: “You won’t know, because on average you book seats on Ryanair six to eight weeks in advance of travel.
“We only do the aircraft allocations the night before, because we don’t know which aircraft is where.
“During the first year, you’ll have a 10% chance you’ll be on a Max aircraft.
“Will anyone know or care? Frankly, I don’t think they will.”
And if passengers don’t want to be on the plane then they won’t get their money back, he continued, though Mr O’Leary did stress the planes will be the “most tested” and the “most safe aircraft ever delivered”.
“You have the right to get off the plane if you want,” said Mr O’Leary.
