AND FINALLY: No MAX departures

Boeing problem.

At a press conference last week Ryanair chief Michael O'Leary confirmed that since the arrival of the airline's first Boeing MAX in June not a single passenger has declined to board, even with the offer of the next available flight.  "It looks like Boeing's problems with the MAX are now history," he said.  "They will be quickly forgotten." The airline has signed for 208 with 12 due to be delivered by the end of the year. Boeing says that orders stand at 4586 for the MAX and 541 deliveries.
