Turkish Airlines Chairman Ilker Ayci said on Tuesday he would meet Boeing's CEO on Friday to discuss the airline's pending orders from Boeing and its expectations for compensation for its losses, state-owned Anadolu news agency reported. Several nations, including the United States, Singapore, Britain and Australia, suspended Boeing 737 Max flights in March after the Ethiopian Airlines crash, leaving the world's largest planemaker facing its worst crisis in years. Several airlines have since asked for compensation from Boeing, including United, Ryanair, China Eastern Airlines, and Flydubai.
