Dublin, Ireland - Irish low-cost operator Ryanair is in talks with the US airframer Boeing about a potential new plane order.

Discounts or cancellations for the existing 737 MAX orders are also part of the discussions, chief executive Michael O’Leary said on May 1st.

Ryanair is the largest operator in Europe and one of the largest customers with an all-Boeing fleet. The carrier currently has 210 737 MAX jets on order. The company has given Boeing a deadline of May 18-19 to secure a “comprehensive new agreement,” O’Leary told Reuters news agency during an interview.

O’Leary said he believed the grounded MAX will be back flying by July or August and said he expected Ryanair to take its first deliveries of the plane by next summer but that it was unclear if it would receive 10 or 30 of the jets by that point.
