Emirates to buy 30 Boeing 787s
Economy News - Baghdad
Emirates and Boeing are set to conclude a settlement agreement that will see the Dubai-based carrier request about 30 787 Dreamliners, paving the way for a deferred order for the 777X, according to people familiar with the matter.
Emirates said it had temporarily ordered 40 Dreamliners in 2017, but "tough" talks at the last minute to finalize the order this week depended on negotiations on the fate of a separate large order for 150 777Xs after the latter was hit. For delays.
But a restructuring of the order for the 777X may not be officially highlighted at the Dubai Air Show, where Emirates plans to announce at 0700 GMT on Wednesday.
