Emirates Airline Orders 40 Boeing 787 Dreamliners

Emirates also announced on Sunday a commitment to buy 40 Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners with a market value of $15.1 billion.

At the 2017 Dubai Air Show, Emirates revealed the new Boeing 777-300ERs with first class suites estimated to cost over $9000.

The order is set to be delivered from 2022, with Emirates expecting the planes to remain part of their operating fleet into the late 2030s. We have adjusted our capacity...it's only 2% growth, but does that mean to say Emirates is going to be stuck at 2% growth?

"I think the ownership here are concerned about continuation (of the A380)".

Emirates uses A380s on its services out of New Zealand.

But the tumultuous landscape has forced Emirates to adapt, retiring older planes and aligning itself with its low-priced sibling FlyDubai.

For entertainment, Singapore Airlines' KrisWorld entertainment system lets passengers select what they want to watch beforehand through the SingaporeAir app, or bookmark and resume content from wherever they left off.


The UAE may still undergo a broader airline consolidation and Clark said a similar alignment or collaboration with Etihad may materialize over time.

Speaking to Reuters at the Dubai Airshow, Tim Clark also said the largest Middle East carrier would probably stick with the Boeing 787 for its mid-sized fleet needs after ordering 40 of the jets on Sunday and could order more of them in future.

There's no need to feel jealous of anyone who gets a window seat either - on the new plane everyone does.

While a significant win for Boeing, "this is the weakest Dubai Air Show in terms of orders in many years, with only 60 orders after the first two days (2015 had 126 orders and 2013 had 552 orders)", wrote Bernstein analyst Doug Harned.

"We are delighted about the partnership with Emirates, which is one of the most well-known airlines in the world".

Passengers would see more modern and airy cabins, Clark said. Emirates is owned by the Dubai government. The manufacturer hopes a new Emirates order will stimulate demand with other carriers for general demand to pick up over the years.
