Michael O’Leary, chief executive of Ryanair Holdings Inc., blasted Boeing Co. during an earnings call. He called for a shakeup at the top of the plane-maker. Ryanair, Europe’s largest budget airline, has ordered hundreds of planes from Boeing, but deliveries have been delayed.

Ryanair ended negotiations with Boeing over an order for Max 10 aircraft over a price dispute. “The management of Boeing in Seattle is very poor,” O’Leary said Monday’s call. Ryanair: “Boeing has been very good to us. We’ve been very lucky.”

O’Leary said Boeing had agreed to deliver a number of 737 Max airliners by this spring, but failed to come through. “It’s probably cost us about 600,000, 800,000 seats in May and June, which is disappointing and still unexplained by Boeing,” he said.

O’Leary: Boeing need a management reboot in Seattle. Ryanair would be happy to work with Boeing’s existing management, “If they get their s*** together.” “Boeing need to up its game or they need to change the existing management.’
