SEATTLE/DUBLIN (Reuters) - Budget airline Ryanair on Thursday ordered 75 additional Boeing 737 MAX jets with a list price of $9 billion, throwing a commercial lifeline to the embattled U.S. planemaker after regulators lifted a 20-month safety ban. “The Boeing MAX is a fabulous aircraft,” Ryanair Chief Executive Michael O’Leary said. Ryanair did not disclose the price it will pay, but traders say deals typically include discounts in excess of 50% of list prices. Reuters reported on Wednesday that Ryanair was close to placing an order for up to 75 Boeing jets. Boeing is also negotiating with airlines including Southwest and Delta and Alaska Airlines, which last month agreed to lease 13 Boeing MAX jets, industry sources have said.

SEATTLE/DUBLIN (Reuters) - Budget airline Ryanair on Thursday ordered 75 Boeing 737 MAX jets with a list price of $9 billion, throwing a commercial lifeline to the embattled U.S. planemaker after regulators lifted a 20-month safety ban. Part of the discount was compensation for the 18-month delay to the first delivery of the MAX, O’Leary said. Asked during the signing ceremony about price concessions Boeing offered, O’Leary joked: “Not enough ... Ryanair also hopes to agree to another large order of the 737 MAX over the next 18 months, and expects to be flying the 230-seat MAX 10 by 2025, O’Leary told Reuters.

One aid worker in touch with Tigray told Reuters that fighting continued to the north, south and west of the highland city of 500,000 people. WAR CHILDEthiopia’s government and the TPLF have both accused each other of targeting civilians - and both denied that. Food stocks are nearly empty for 96,000 Eritrean refugees in Tigray, aid agencies say, while medics in Mekelle are short of painkillers, gloves and bodybags. “Aid is needed now as there’s an acute shortage of food, medicine and other relief,” tweeted Norwegian Refugee Council head Jan Egeland, saying relief convoys were ready to go. The TPLF accuses their ex-military comrade and government coalition partner of trying to increase his personal power over Ethiopia’s 10 regions.

One aid worker in touch with Tigray said clashes had been taking place to the north, south and west of the city. Claims from all sides have been hard to verify while access to Tigray region was blocked and communications largely down, though internet and phone services were returning this week.

Like other technology companies, Google has also faced criticism for not doing enough to resolve the lack of women and racial minorities among its ranks. The problems of racial inequality, especially the mistreatment of Black employees at technology companies, has plagued Silicon Valley for years. Researchers worry that the people who are building artificial intelligence systems may be building their own biases into the technology. After hiring researchers like Dr. Gebru, Google has painted itself as a company dedicated to “ethical” A.I.

HAMDAYET, Sudan (Reuters) - Like thousands of others fleeing to Sudan from the conflict in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region, 20-year-old Girum left his family and many of his possessions behind. Like Girum, most have been ferried across the Tekeze river and into Sudan at Hamdayet, clutching few if any belongings. Girum said his instrument, which has strings stretched across a simple rectangular wooden frame, was retrieved after his home had been looted. Other Tigrayan refugees have said they fled attacks by government forces and allied militia. In a speech to parliament on Monday, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed urged those who fled into Sudan to return.

NAIROBI/GENEVA (Reuters) - Four Ethiopian aid workers employed by two separate foreign organizations were killed in Tigray near the border with Eritrea last month during a war in the northern region, a humanitarian and a diplomatic source said on Wednesday. There was no immediate comment from Ethiopia’s government or the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) who have been battling since Nov. 4. The aid organizations declined to comment because a communications blackout in Tigray meant relatives had not been reached nor the exact circumstances of their deaths verified. There were credible but unconfirmed reports that a fifth aid worker had also died in Tigray, another humanitarian source told Reuters in Europe. The conflict is believed to have killed thousands of people in Tigray, sent more than 45,000 refugees fleeing to Sudan, and forced several hundred foreign aid workers to leave the region for safety reasons.

PARIS (Reuters) - Ryanair is close to placing an order for dozens of additional Boeing 737 MAX jets in a commercial boost to the U.S. planemaker after regulators lifted a 20-month safety grounding, industry sources said. FILE PHOTO: Ryanair planes are seen at Dublin Airport, following the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), Dublin, Ireland, May 1, 2020. Ryanair is one of Boeing’s largest worldwide customers and an order from the Irish carrier is seen as a pivotal moment in efforts by Boeing to rehabilitate the troubled 737 MAX, once its fastest-selling model. Alaska Airlines last month agreed to lease 13 Boeing MAX jets. Aviation photographer Michael Kelly tweeted a picture of a Boeing-operated private jet landing in Dublin, fuelling speculation that Ryanair bosses would travel to the United States for an announcement, echoing a previous Boeing jet deal.

FILE PHOTO: Ryanair planes are seen at Dublin Airport, following the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), Dublin, Ireland, May 1, 2020. Alaska Airlines last month agreed to lease 13 Boeing MAX jets. Ryanair’s order may, however, be overshadowed by new European Union tariffs on Boeing jets, bringing a long-running trade row to a head in the midst of the U.S. electoral transition. Ryanair, meanwhile, has said it expects Boeing to absorb the cost of the 15% European tariffs on planes already ordered.

Boeing said it had no comment on the American flight and that it would not have staff aboard. The planemaker has said that airlines will take a direct role in demonstrating to passengers that the 737 MAX is safe. Wednesday’s flight marks the first time anyone besides regulators and industry personnel have flown on the MAX since the grounding. A smooth return to service for the MAX is seen as critical for Boeing’s reputation and finances. Airlines and leasing companies have spent hundreds of billions of dollars buying the latest upgrade of the 737, the world’s most-sold aircraft.

Reflecting the COVID-19 pandemic that has roiled commercial aviation, each of the roughly 90 journalists, flight attendants and other American Airlines employees on the flight wore face masks. In an example of how airlines have begun to soft-pedal references to the MAX brand, the safety cards on Wednesday’s flight omitted the “MAX” name and just said “737.”

HAMDEYAT, Sudan (Reuters) - A Syrian refugee living in Sudan, who says he wants to show how refugees can make a difference, is helping to supply clean water to Ethiopians fleeing conflict at home. Kanoush says his mission is to prove that refugees can bring about change and has devoted his free time to helping other refugees and people in need. “In Sudan I wanted to give an example that refugees are not really problems,” he told Reuters. Salam has also volunteered in other refugee camps during his time in Sudan and has founded an organisation in Sudan’s eastern Kassala state that empowers women and young people to start their own businesses. A month-long war in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region has sent 45,000 refugees into neighbouring Sudan.

ADDIS ABABA/NAIROBI (Reuters) - Ethiopia’s prime minister met political parties on Wednesday to plan next year’s election and shift attention away from a month-long war in the north that was sliding into a messy guerrilla conflict. That defiance was one reason for the federal government’s military offensive against TPLF leaders from Nov. 4. He took Ethiopia’s top job after nearly three decades of a TPLF-led national government, which had become increasingly repressive, jailing opponents and banning opposition parties. There was no immediate comment from TPLF leaders. TPLF leaders say they are continuing to fight from surrounding mountainous areas.

ADDIS ABABA/NAIROBI (Reuters) - Ethiopia and the United Nations reached an agreement on Wednesday to channel desperately needed humanitarian aid to a northern region where a month of war has killed, wounded and uprooted large numbers of people. The pact, announced by U.N. officials, will allow aid workers access to government-controlled areas of Tigray, where federal troops have been battling the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) and captured the regional capital. Aid agencies had sounded the alarm about a growing humanitarian crisis and been pressing for access, after hundreds of foreign workers were forced to evacuate. That defiance was one reason for the federal government’s military offensive against TPLF leaders. It accuses Abiy of “invading” Tigray, where federal troops captured the regional capital Mekelle at the weekend, sending TPLF leaders fleeing for the hills.
