DUBLIN — Ryanair considers placing another large 737 MAX order over the next 18 months and expects flying the 230-seat MAX 10 variant by 2025, Group Chief Executive Michael O'Leary told Reuters in an interview on Thursday.

I would like to see a follow-on order sometime over the next 12 or 18 months," O'Leary said in a phone interview after signing a deal for 75 additional 197-seat MAX 200 jets.

"Very much part of the agreement we announced today is that Ryanair is going to be at the front of the queue when Boeing is able to price a MAX 10 order and put together a delivery program," he said.

O'Leary said he was in active discussions about the MAX 10 but also said that the delivery timetable of the MAX 10 program looked likely to slip.

"Boeing is busy having design issues, there are still some regulatory issues they are working their way through with the regulator on the MAX 10."

"I think regulators are looking for some further design work to be done so I think the delivery of the MAX 10 is going to slip back maybe 12-18 months," he said.

Today Ryanair has announced that it has finalized an order commitment for 75 737 MAX jets.#
