Tony Ryan, 71, an Irish entrepreneur who founded Europe's leading budget airline Ryanair, died Wednesday near Dublin after a long illness, the airline and his family said. Ryan founded Ryanair in 1985 with a single 15-seat plane. By the time he floated the company on the Irish and British stock exchanges, Ryanair Holdings was expanding across the European continent with eye-popping fares, new routes and trademark boastful marketing.

Boeing Co. lost a major jetliner order to its primary rival Monday when Europe's largest budget airline said it would buy 120 Airbus planes with a potential value of at least $4 billion. The decision by EasyJet to buy the 150-seat Airbus A319, the largest single airliner order this year, came as a bitter blow to Boeing, which has been struggling with dwindling orders for its jets since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
