Emirates order 40 787-10’s

Unsurprisingly a long hinted at order for the 787 finally came to pass from Emirates. 40 787-10’s will be delivered from 2022 onwards, their aim to replace older aircraft – the handful of 772LR’s and older 773’s.

There is this ridiculous habit in the industry of wanting to make it seem like a race between Boeing and Airbus when both offer very different products that cross over in some areas and not in others.

The highlight will be the A380 order – if Emirates are in the mood to sign it.
