The Irish Independent is reporting that low cost carrier RyanAir has placed an $18bn (€14bn) order with Boeing to buy up to 200 aircraft. It is unclear whether the order includes any 737 MAX.

Apparently the order will be confirmed by US President Barack Obama and Taoiseach (Prime Minister of Ireland) Enda Kenny at the White House next week.

This order also implies that RyanAir has essentially abandoned its seven year old efforts to buy Irish national carrier Aer Lingus and will use this order to expand its fleet and services.
