I thought the 737 order was previously announced (earlier this week). Btw heres a press release for the Emirates order:


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- Emirates Airlines has placed an order to buy 42 Boeing 777 jets worth around US$9.7 billion, the airlines' chairman said Sunday.

Sheik Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said the aircraft, to be powered by General Electric (GE) GE-90 engines in a deal worth $2.5 billion, include 24 Boeing 777-300 ERs, plus 10 777-200 LR worldliners and eight 777 freighters.

Emirates is scheduled to receive the first aircraft from the order in 2007, and has an option to buy 20 more 777 aircraft.

The announcement was made at the annual Dubai Airshow, the largest regional aircraft exhibition.

Industry analysts had been expecting Emirates to place orders with both Boeing and European rival Airbus Industries at the Dubai air show, where Sheik Ahmed made the Boeing order announcement, along with Boeing Chief Executive Jim McNerney and GE Vice Chairman David Calhoun.

"This new order will support the airline's growth plans and enhance our fleet range and versatility," Sheik Ahmed said.

He said his fast-growing airline had yet to decide whether it will buy the Airbus A350 or the Boeing 787.

"We will decide when we are ready," said Sheik Ahmed.

Emirates is already the largest customer for Airbus' huge double-decker A380, which made its maiden Mideast flight at the Dubai air show.

Sheik Ahmed said he hoped to use the Boeing 777 to develop more European and Asian routes.

The 777-200LR, which earlier this month broke the world distance record for commercial airliners, will also allow Emirates to start nonstop flights to long-range destinations on the U.S. West Coast and in South America, he said.

The 777-200 is the world's longest range commercial jetliner. According to Boeing, it can fly upto 7400 nautical miles (13700 kilometers).

"We're glad that the 777 will become the cornerstone of the Emirates fleet," said Boeing's McNerney.

The deal boosts the airline's order book to 132, with a total value of $37.4 billion. Emirates is awaiting delivery of 23 777-300ERs, 45 A380s, 20 A340-600s and two A310Fs.

The airline currently runs a fleet of 83 aircraft.

With the huge amount of 777-300ER aircrafts coming into Emirates fleet, what will happen to the A340-600. Will the order be cancelled or will they take delivery of that too? I heard from many people the A340-600s and A340-500's might be ditched! Now that boeing is building a longer version of 787, I think the A350 order predicted for emirates will be also ditched.

I would be really happy if Emirates went with the 787s.

Is there any particular reason why a whole new thread had to be started on a single order?

You guys should be glad I'm not a moderator here, lol.

I believe emirates is a very rich nation, it's being run by a sheikh, which is a royalty status comparable to Kings, Emperors and Sultans. Hlf of it is from oil wells?

I would be happy to see Emirates 787s as well. I'm hoping to see that stretched 787-10 if Boeing ever makes it for Emirates. I'd really love to see that .

Emirates is state-sponsored, labour is cheap and the employees have limited rights.

The goal of Emirates and Dubai is to make Dubai the World hub. Placed where Africa, Asia and Europe meets, the location is perfect.

Emirates is unlikely to buy the 787 in my view, since their buying strategy shows that they believe that the future of aviation will be hub-to-hub istead of point-to-point (which the 787 is perfect for).

Qatar Airways unveils new aircraft livery, and plans for new Airbus A340-600 that wil

Qatar Airways unveils new aircraft livery, and plans for new Airbus A340-600 that will be equipped with a dedicated First Class lounge





Qatar Airways today unveiled its brand new-look that takes it into the next generation of air travel.

From new aircraft livery to innovative onboard products, award-winning Qatar Airways is making radical changes to its image, reflecting itself as a more progressive and confident airline.

The enhancements are part of an on-going product revamp that began last Autumn with the roll-out of a new style of onboard service across its premium cabins on long-haul flights.

Beginning this summer, the Qatar Airways will introduce redesigned livery on the newest addition to its rapidly-growing fleet - the Airbus A340-600 High Gross Weight (HGW) aircraft.

Qatar Airways is the launch customer of the High Gross Weight version of the A340-600 aircraft, which is capable of flying up to 14 hours non- stop with a full load of passengers and cargo. The new A340-600 will also be equipped with a dedicated First Class lounge.

Passengers flying in the premium cabin of the A340-600(HGW) aircraft will have the added benefit of a dedicated onboard First Class lounge allowing them to relax and eat in the comfort of their very own special area. Epitomizing luxury and innovation, the new First Class lounge promises to be one of the best in the air when it takes to the skies this summer.

The lounge features a stand-up bar with drinks rack and spotlight mood lighting. It also features cream leather sofas that can seat up to six passengers. Lampshades are positioned on two teak wooden tables, while a special additional aspect is electronically-operated window shades.

The general ambience of the lounge is one of comfort and relaxation with Qatar Airways' strong burgundy corporate colours very evident in the curtains, carpets and furniture.

Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker described the revolutionary changes as a "giant step forward" for the airline as it enters the next generation of air travel.

"We are operating in one of the most competitive industries in the world where passengers have greater choice and are more demanding," he said.

"Qatar Airways is a relatively young full-service airline, less than 10 years old, yet we have led with innovation to become a well-reputed global business. This is reflected by our numerous awards.

"Our new First Class lounge onboard our A340-600 aircraft reflects the importance we pay to our most loyal customers - our premium class passengers who are looking for that little more attention, privacy and comfort.

"Over the next few weeks and months, we will be unveiling further details of our onboard product on the A340-600 and I promise they will be revolutionary in design and style."

Doha-based Qatar Airways has ordered 10 A340-600s for deliveries beginning this summer over a two-year period. The aircraft is designed to operate long-haul flights such as Doha to Europe, United States, Far East and Australia. All new A340s joining the fleet will feature the new livery.
