The order, announced Monday at the Farnborough International Airshow, adds to the 71 models of the same aircraft previously bought by Emirates, according to the Associated Press.
The news comes as the airplane industry is gathering in England for the Farnborough International Airshow.A highlight of the show was the landing of a Boeing 787 jet -- the first time one has touched down outside the U.S. Boeing has often touted the plane as a next-generation airliner because of its fuel efficiency and what the company claims is a more comfortable passenger environment. But production problems already have delayed the airliner's delivery by more than two years. At the show, Boeing CEO Jim McNerney said the company planned to deliver the 787 by the end of this year, although he added that some administrative delays could push the date into 2011, the Associated Press reported.
