The Emirates carrier is expected to announce a huge order for Boing 777X airplanes at the Dubai Air Show this weekend.
The Boeing 777X is the next promising airliner coming from Boing. According to Bloomberg the new Boing 777X is off to great start as Emirates is supposed to order 150 777X. The announcement is supposed to come at the Dubai Air Show 2013. The Dubai Air Show starts on Sunday.
The Emirates carrier has evolved into the world's biggest international carrier. The new order would cement that even further.
The Boeing 777X is though still topic in union negotiations. Reuters has a new in-depth report on the issues there. Politicians are also getting involved as the fight for where the Boeing 777X will be built is entering the hot phase.
Boeing plans to release the first Boeing 777X by the end of the decade.
