I wonder if Enda will wear his special tie when meeting Obama and "announcing" that Ryanair are buying 14,000,000,000 worth of planes from Boeing.
Bit of a snub to the EU's Airbus, which would be embarassing if Enda was capable of joining the dots
http://seekingalpha.com/currents/post/881541Boeing has reportedly received an $18B order from Dublin-based Ryanair in a deal that is set to be confirmed next week, when Irish Taoiseach Enda Kenny visits the White House. It's not clear whether Ryanair will acquire the 737-800 or Boeing's new 'Max' model. The booking would be one of Boeing's largest ever and presumably mark the end a feud that goes back to 2009 over a collapsed order.
