Bloomberg reported that Ryanair Holdings “is reported to be in talks to purchase between 150 and 200 Boeing Co. 737 Max aircraft, in a deal that would boost confidence in the grounded jet as it prepares for a return to service.” Ryanair “is discussing a mix of Max 200s, the version it has already ordered, and the bigger Max 10, the Irish Independent reported Friday.” A “purchase of that size would total at least $18.7 billion at list prices, making it the biggest plane order in a 2020 market.” The order “would also provide a morale-builder to Boeing as it brings its most popular jet back into commercial use.” Ryanair “currently has 135 737 Max-200s on order, plus another 75 options, according to its website.”
