Emirates orders 90 777X aircraft
Boeing 777-9s, as part of this agreement, are expected to enter operational service starting in 2025. Boeing hopes that by 2025, the new 777-9 will be certified after long delays.
Meanwhile, deliveries of the 777-8 are expected to begin from 2030, with this variant to be produced. Currently, Boeing's focus is on the new 777-9.
For Boeing, the order placed by Emirates for the 90 777X aircraft is a crucial one to boost the program. The American plane maker admits that interest in the new generation of triple seven jets has waned because of the delays.
