Boeing, Emirates complete $56B order

  • Boeing (BA) has finalized a $56B order for 150 777X planes from Dubai's Emirates airline. Included in the deal are purchase rights that Emirates could exercise for an additional 50 airplanes - which would bring the value of the order to $75B.
  • The new acquisition deals a harsh blow to Airbus (EADSF), after Emirates scrapped a $16B purchase for 70 Airbus A350's in June, and was looking to replace the order.

    'after Emirates scrapped a $16B purchase for 70 Airbus A350's in June, and was looking to replace the order.'

     

    How much of the 56 Billion will come to fruition, and in what time frame?

     

    This is all just kickbacks for American politicians to continue to fu*k with U.S. oil interests and help the ME oil owners.

    Since Airbus has been the number commercial jets builder therefore the number of Airbus cancellations must have less then Boeing to kept
    Airbus No 1

     

    May some day you will post a comment on the topic with some facts

     

    remember the 777-x, 737max, 787-10 are still on the drawing board and may go into flight test in 2020 and the 777-9 in 2022

     

    and the A350 will be delivery in 2016 !
