Singapore, 14 November 2017 - Emirates, announced at the weekend it has made a USD15.1 billion (AED 55.4 billion) commitment for 40 Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners. The airline says that in selecting the 787-10, it complements its 777 fleet with a medium twin-aisle airliner that offers 25% better fuel efficiency per seat and emissions than the aircraft it replaces.
The United Arab Emirates-based carrier will also become the first to receive the new Boeing 777X in 2020.
According to the United States Department of Commerce, the deal between Boeing and Emirates would support more than 75,000 direct and indirect American jobs.

On Tuesday Lieutenant Colonel Francis Hughes submitted his retirement paperwork, days after Colonel Richard D. The retirement is routine, according to a statement released by David Procopio, a state police spokesman.
H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman, Emirates, commented, "Emirates' orders today will be delivered from 2022, taking the airline well into the 2030s".
A desperately needed order from Emirates for A380 "superjumbos" that would help keep alive the programme hangs on Airbus being able to secure orders for the giant airliner from other customers.
The 787-10 Dreamliner is 5.5 meters (18 ft) longer than the 787-9 yet shares more than 95% commonality with its smaller sibling.
