The agreement involves money already owed by Ryanair to Boeing, it's understood. The airline has 135 firm orders placed for Boeing Max jets, and an option on 75 more. The core Ryanair fleet consists of 455 Boeing 737 aircraft. The chairman of Turkish Airlines, Ilker Ayci, is meeting today with Boeing chief executive Dennis Muilenburg to discuss terms of Max compensation. Neither Ryanair nor Boeing would confirm or comment when asked about the agreement struck between them.
