Emirates to replace 777s with new Boeing model

Dubai, May 6, 2013

 

Dubai airline Emirates plans to replace "a large chunk" of its Boeing 777 aircraft with a new model launched by the planemaker, Emirates' President Tim Clark said on Monday.
 
Boeing announced earlier in May that it had begun selling an upgraded aircraft family code-named 777X, launching a race against Airbus for sales of long-haul jets.
 
Fast-growing Gulf carriers are expected to be the first and biggest customers for Boeing's latest offering.
 
"I'm looking to replace a large chunk of them (777s). It'll be a large order," Clark told reporters in Dubai, without specifying the number of planes he plans to order.
