Emirates buys 40 B787-10s

Dubai-based Emirates has ordered 40 B787-10s from Boeing to replace old B777-200s and 777-300s.
Chairman and chief executive Sheik Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said the aircraft would be delivered from 2022.
 
“We see the 787 as a great complement to our 777 and A380 fleet, providing us with more flexibility to serve a range of destinations as we develop our global route network,” he said.
 
The agreement with Boeing includes conversion rights to the smaller 787-9 and will be configured with either two or three-classes, seating between 240 and 330 passengers.
 
The 787-10 is capable of flying 6,430 nautical miles when configured for 330 passengers in a two-class layout, according to Boeing.
The order takes Boeing's published orders for the type to 211.
