Ryanair Holdings Plc could snap up more Boeing Co. 737s should other carriers shy away from orders amid softening demand, Chief Executive Office Michael O’Leary said.

Ryanair is interested in sourcing extra single-aisle planes, even though it has 115 current generation 737-800s due for delivery over the next few years followed by 100 updated 737 Max 200s arriving from 2019, and is also exploring a further Max order.
