FARNBOROUGH, United Kingdom, July 19, 2010 – Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Dubai-based Emirates Airlines today announced an order for 30 Boeing 777-300ERs (Extended Range) at the 2010 Farnborough International Airshow.  Eighteen of these were previously attributed to an unidentified customer on Boeing’s Orders and Deliveries website.
Emirates is already the world’s largest 777 operator with a fleet of 86 777s through direct purchase and lease, plus an additional 16 777-300ERs previously on order. It is also the only airline in the world to operate every model in the Boeing 777 family, including the 777 Freighter.
